A great success! Thanks for the 319 delegate for making it a wonderful experience! See the playlist for full video coverage of the conference.

Agile Africa is an annual conference where African software professionals meet to uncover better ways of working and developing software. You will get the chance to hear leading international and local speakers and, more importantly, interact with professionals from various software development communities. The 2016 conference will build on last year’s success to create an engaging memorable event.

Talks

22-23 August, leading international and local speakers will challenge us with the latest ideas in the Agile world, as well as cover crucial fundamentals that we seem to have neglected. Topics will grow our understanding of knowledge work and what it takes to build good software.

Indaba Tree (Interactive Space)

Engage with the speakers and other delegates – even challenge their ideas – in our Indaba Room alongside the talks. It will have a fishbowl, open spaces, lean coffee as ways to make interaction fun and comfortable. If your introvert kicks in, just listening in on a debate over a good coffee is equally rewarding.

Workshops

During the conference, we will host a few handpicked speaker workshops. Don’t miss this opportunity to get a deeper grasp on ideas and practice in applying them with leading mentors. Note that unlike previous years we will not host workshops on a separate day following the conference, but rather include it in the main program as part of your standard ticket. 

Agile Africa is also part of the Fakugesi African Digital Innovation festival that runs from 18 August to 3 September in Braamfontein. Have a look at www.fakugesi.co.za, the events are great and most are free!
