About the conference

Agile Australia was founded in 2009 as an annual Conference. Since then, not only has the Conference grown to welcome over 1,200 delegates each year as well as high-profile speakers from around the country and the world, but Agile Australia has also become much more than a Conference. AgileAus is a hub for the Australian agilist community and those interested in better ways of working.
