Red Hat Agile Day - Raleigh

October 10, 2019Waltham, MassachusettsThe Westin Waltham - Boston

This year’s theme is “Practically Agile,” which has two main definitions:

In one, “Practically” is synonymous with “not far from,” “close to,” or “verging on.” Many Agile teams could be described this way, and this year’s conference offers talks that can help you guide your teams to the next level.

In another sense, “Practically” means “realistically,” “pragmatically,” or “with common sense.” For Agile practitioners who are expanding the use of Agile beyond software development or who have found ways to stay true to the Agile values while fighting in the trenches of reality, this year's Red Hat Agile Day - Raleigh will have plenty in store for you.
