Agile Lean DevOps Conferences 2021

Agile, Lean and DevOps Conferences 2021

28 January

Together, We Know!

What a weird name for an event. Here’s the deal. There are a billion events all competing for the same set of eyes and ears and they’re focused on what organizers want to push into your head. There’s certainly nothing wrong with that, but we thought we’d try something differently.

What is it that jiggles people into action? Why is it that some people are willing to take risks and change things while others get stuck? We want this event to be about helping you get unstuck. It’s not about ‘experts’ telling you about their favorite method, model or tool, it’s about you bringing a problem you can’t seem to figure out and the crowd at the event will help point you in a direction.

More details on the YouTube video here.

Price: R202
