About Agile on the Beach

Agile on the Beach is a two-day annual business and technology conference to be held in Falmouth on 4th and 5th September 2014. The conference hosts around thirty UK and International expert speakers over the two days alongside evenings of networking and social events.

The conference explores three main strands of Agile adoption – Business strategy, Teams and Software Craftmanship as well as a Product Design Bonus track this year.  Cornwall will welcome 39 speakers on adoption of Agile in non-technical businesses as well as its core technical theme.

It’s the perfect opportunity to inspire creative and technical thinking, to enjoy time with the UK’s leading thinkers in Agile adoption and evolution and to explore the latest Agile and lean thinking in software craftmanship, teams and business.

Networking opportunities include the beach party, which at the 2013 conference brought together attendees and speakers to explore what it means to be truly Agile in business, from culture to product development practices.

Agile on the Beach 2014 will be on 4-5 September – register your interest via www.agileonthebeach.com to receive more information on the conference.
