The North of England’s practical, hands-on Agile software development conference Agile Manchester is returning for its 3rd year in 2017 and we are excited to visit it! 

The event will start on the 9th May with a full day workshop from Linda Rising – “Influence strategies for practitioners”, followed by a 3-day main part of the conference, full of inspiring talks, case studies, experience reports, tutorials and workshops, all from practitioners working on the front line of the industry.


The keynote speakers for 2017 are:

Day 1: Linda Rising – “The power of an agile mindset“.

Day 2: Emily Webber – “People, principles and pragmatism“.

Day 3: Dr Sal Freudenberg – “A matter of minds: why supporting neurodiversity could be just the thing your teams, products and organisations need“.


In addition, do not miss the Case Study from our co-founder and principal consultant Matthew Skelton. He will be sharing his experience on designing teams on Day 1, with the talk – How and why to design your teams for modern software systems.


In total, there will be more than 45 sessions covering a wide range of agile topics allowing the participants to connect and learn from their peers and leaders in the industry.
