Agile 2005 Opens to a Sell-Out Audience as Conference Breaks Attendence Predictions

Uniting XP/Agile Universe and Agile Development Conference, New Conference Offers the World's Most Comprehensive Program for Exp

DENVER, July 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The Agile Alliance, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the concepts of Agile software development, today kicked off the Agile 2005 Conference to a sell-out audience. Registration closed three weeks early for the conference, which represents the successful merger of XP/Agile Universe and the Agile Development Conference. Agile 2005 opened with a provocative keynote presentation by industry visionaries Bob Martin and Brian Marick titled "Where were we? Where are we? Where are we going?" The conference runs through July 29 in Denver.

Agile 2005 brings together the Agile development community by promoting the profound benefits the methodologies deliver, while building momentum for an increasingly mainstream adoption of Agile practices. Attendees of Agile 2005 will choose among more than 85 practical, interactive sessions led by industry luminaries, Agile programming experts and peer-led development team leaders. In addition, a full-day Executive Summit on Wednesday, July 27 will feature insights from C-level executives into why Agile practices are quickly shifting from developer-led grassroots initiatives to "top-down" programs that help drive company growth, competitiveness and customer responsiveness.

"The overwhelming response to Agile 2005 validates not only our decision to combine the two leading conferences on Agile methods into one unified event, but is proof that Agile is quickly moving toward the mainstream and catching the attention of c-level executives," said Todd Little, program director for Agile 2005.

The Agile 2005 conference is ideal for independent software vendors, software consultants and in-house corporate development teams interested in learning first-hand how to successfully implement and scale Agile methodologies. Agile 2006 will be held July 23 - 28, 2006 in Minneapolis. For more information visit http://www.agile2005.org/
