Agile Grows Up: Agile Business Conference 2011, London

Another week, another event! This time it was the turn of the Agile Business Conference in London. It was encouraging to see an excellent turn out for this 3 day event, and an overwhelmingly positive attitude from delegates, speakers & sponsors. The thing that most struck me about the whole experience was that agile software development really is breaking out and growing up. This was a conference not just for people wanting to know what it’s all about and how to get started, but for people that want to improve and grow, and use agile in ever more complex and challenging environments. But in the words of the famous american baseball player, Casey Stengel: “The trick is growing up without growing old”....let's hope the agile movement is not just another fad in the development of the software engineering profession.
