Your Agile Lean conference, OpenAgile Timisoara, 2012

What we’ve learned — Tools and techniques for Agile teams

The 5th OpenAgile edition, and second one this year, takes place in Timisoara on October 6th. For 2012, we are really excited about the international speakers sharing what they’ve learned from their practical experience.

We bring together practitioners from Lean organizations and Agile software development. There will be many ways to learn new things, share your ideas, and get your questions answered.

Audience. Why attend?

For those who want to learn how to improve their work and their organizations. Business stakeholders, management and development teams. Managers. Programmers. Testers. Teams and individuals in IT software field, marketing or other industries where agile and lean principles are embraced on the path to excellence.

Being a community driven event, you are encouraged to share. To learn from others. To ask. You’ll find in this event tools and techniques for continuous improvement in the Agile and Lean environment.

Technical talks will give you new insights for your software craftsmanship development. Along with the participants from Hungary and other European countries, you can bring into discussions your own challenges in the open-space-inspired spontaneous sessions.
