With so many popular Agile conferences happening between July-December 2020, you don't want to miss out on these opportunities to learn, grow and network.

Why can’t Agile stay still? Does it have to continue to grow and evolve at such a rapid pace?
Well, yes it does.

Agile practitioners continue to experiment and discover better ways of working. As a result, we also need to continually learn and grow to keep up with these new developments.

Here are 27 of the best Agile conferences taking place in the second half of 2020.

Many of them have moved to an online format. However, a few events could still be subject to rescheduling, so make sure to check the event website to confirm.

Now you have every reason to get out there and learn, grow and network. What new skills will you acquire? Who will you meet?
