You can’t move in software development these days without someone wanting to iterate on your steps, huddle around your shoes and stick a map of best places to walk on the wall. That’s because everyone does Agile, the development technique for teams which has exploded in use in recent years. So it’s fairly big news that there’s a gathering of all things Agile on the African continent in Johannesburg next month.

The first Agile Africa conference is taking place on the weekend of 12th and 13th August, and will be hosted by the Johannesburg Centre for Software Excellence (JCSE) and Thoughtworks at the Alexander Theatre in Braamfontein. Tickets are available from the website here, and start at R2 900. It’s pricey, but when you consider Thoughtworks were one of the main pioneers of Agile, worth it if you want to get insight from the best.
