AgileDC is the largest Agile community organized event in the Washington DC metro area and is bringing together thought-leaders and practitioners from government, not-for-profits, and private industry alike to grow our local software community.
Our primary mission is to develop an exceptional community of local knowledge on Agile and the latest software development practices.
Not for Profit
We raise money to cover the expenses of running the conference and supporting philanthropic work.
We bring the disparate elements of our community together: imagine workers from a start-up, an NGO, and a government agency sharing ideas over coffee.
Enabling the Public Sector
As a center for public sector organizations, we are a locus for information sharing in the government and not for profits space beyond the D.C area alone.
Not Bigger, Better
We improve the quality of the conference we provide our community over increasing its size.
We provide a conference with as minimal an environmental impact as possible.
This year we are going with 45 minute timeslots. Having a single size timeslot makes the selection process easier. Having a slightly shorter timeslot allows us to accept a few more proposals. The downside is that you need to be a bit more focused than for a 60 minute slot. If you have an absolutely great workshop that absolutely cannot be accomplished in 45 minutes, then we'll consider two consecutive slots for it. Please note that double timeslots will be extremely limited, so submitting for 90 minutes will likely reduce your chances of being selected.
In order to keep the conference costs low, we regret to inform you that we are unable to offer any honorarium or travel expenses. If your session is accepted, you will receive a free ticket to the conference and the adulation of your audience.
