The First AiA conference 2015 stood out as a monumental event. Many in attendance reported feedback to the organising team as – inspiring; amazing; one of a kind; the way forward for Africa; and looking forward to the next event next year.
Working Theme for Agile in Africa Conference 2015 was “Are you a Hippo or a Cheetah?” We created an awareness of Agile and Scrum and introduced Africa to a bunch of ideas and showcased Africa to the World, this was Step 1 and now we present our working Theme for Agile in Africa Conference 2016…..The Way of the Cheetah. a Business &Technology Change Conference, showing us how to operate as a Cheetah, this is Step 2. The 2016 Conference will be hands-on, practical and highly informative, participants will take away tools and ideas to implement immediately.
To maintain consistency and momentum in this monumental change process, we told participants at the Agile in Africa 2015 that this is not a one off event, it will happen every year therefore we are inviting back some of the 2015 speakers and a few new faces to run sessions that will help people to innovate and excel on their journey towards greater agility using agile principles and practices, frameworks such as XP and Scrum and leveraging the power of new technology such as Amazon Web Services and other Open Source tools.
