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!
In 2015, we donated $34,000!
Want to donate to these GREAT causes personally?
Your additional contributions will help us donate even more. Would you help? Have a question? Please contact Manoj Vadakkan (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Want more information? Check out our FAQ page or the schedule from 2013 or 2014 or 2015 to get an idea of what we are all about. And volunteer (volunteer list is full for 2016) on the day of the event to get an inside view!
We are happy to announce that Johanna Rothman has agreed to be our keynote speaker.
Johanna, known as the “Pragmatic Manager,” provides frank advice for your tough problems. She helps leaders and teams see problems and resolve risks and manage their product development.
Johanna is more interested in how to help you be agile rather than a specific dogma. She is the author of more than ten books, all of which use some form of iterative and incremental approaches. Her most recent books are Agile and Lean Program Management: Scaling Collaboration Across the Organization, and Manage Your Project Portfolio: Increase Your Capacity and Finish More Projects, 2nd edition.
