Inaugural AgileIndy Conference a Success
As a leader in the software industry, Software Engineering Professionals (SEP) strives to stay abreast of the best practices, tools, and thought leaders in the community. In 2012, AgileIndy, a non-profit organization devoted to raising awareness and acceptance of agile practices, announced that they would host their inaugural conference.
This one day, multi-track event covered all aspects of Agile Software Development. This event was the first of its kind in Indianapolis, and ideal for SEP to be involved. “We were thrilled to find out that AgileIndy was organizing this conference,” said Kelly Wilson, Director of Marketing & Public Relations of SEP. “Throughout the year we are involved with so many conferences across the country it was perfect to have something in our own backyard. The ability to get a sold-out conference in its first year was definitely a sign that the local market was ready for an event of this caliber.”
SEP has been following many principles and practices of agile for almost 10 years. Becoming involved with AgileIndy and the group’s first conference allows us to give back to the city and share how iterative software development has influenced our company.
AgileIndy board member and Engineering VP Chris Atkinson was thrilled about the conference’s success. “It was very exciting to see such a great turnout for our very first AgileIndy conference! I look forward to continuing to encourage improvement in software engineering practices by sharing our experiences with the local development communities.”
