But what does that really mean? AgileDC is the largest Agile community organized event in the Washington DC metro area. So, not only does a group of Agile folks come together to organize the event (everything from vetting white papers to planning & logistics to marketing), but Speakers share their time, expertise, and invaluable experiences so that others can benefit from their successes (they even pay for their own travel expenses!), and a generous group of Sponsors donate the greenbacks to help make it all happen. All proceeds are then donated to charities chosen by the volunteers. How cool is that!
The selection process is not yet complete, but we’re happy to announce that Johanna Rothman has agreed to be our keynote speaker.

In 2015, we donated $34,000!
