“Agile Shift 2019 was a fantastic launch, and the opening keynote by Dave West gave it a “big” conference feel beyond the Houston region. I enjoyed following the product owner track - especially relevant to my role - and hearing different perspectives and talking points. Looking forward to similar gems in 2020 with new presenters, topics and a bigger venue!”

“There’s a lot I love about the Houston Agile Shift conference…hearing local Houston agile practitioners speak, the palpable excitement in the air, making new friends… but I think my favorite thing is just how many different tracks are available: Product Development, Scaling, DevOps, UX, Executive, Shared Learnings and more… it’s stuff you really want to hear more about!”

“I was really impressed with the Agile Shift Conference last year. The thing I enjoyed most was learning how other teams have implemented the agile methodologies, what obstacles they encountered along the way, and how they overcame those obstacles. One of the sessions led to a discussion among the attendees and the Improving facilitators where I learned quite a bit just hearing everyone’s agile stories. One thing I learned is that there is plenty of room for improvement in our development teams. This year I hope to gain more agile knowledge that I can take back to my fellow developers and management to improve our processes.”
The Agile Shift is returning to Houston again this summer. We’re bringing together all of the diversity in thought and experience the Houston area agile community has to offer for this one day event. In recent years, our region has seen a seismic shift in the number of companies who are taking on agile. And while it has predominately been a process to write great software, it’s increasingly proven to be a valuable tool for running the business. We are proud to be a part and a catalyst of Houston’s Agile Shift.
