About

Are you interested in agile software development methodologies, like Extreme Programming, Scrum, Lean Development, FDD, Crystal, Kanban….?

All agile methodologies have some common principles and values, with an emphasis on individuals, interactions, delivery of working software, collaboration, responding to change and reflection. The different characteristics of the methods make them suitable for different circumstances.

The user group is here to share experiences with you, teach new useful techniques and to support everyone who wants to improve their software development processes. Come to our user group meetings to meet other people who use agile methods, or want to use it or just want to know what it really is.Join the discussion in the Agile Belgium mailing list or on Twitter.

Agile Games

Games are a fun and powerful way to learn. You can download the XP Game (experience 3 iterations in an Agile team) and the Business Value Game (experience the role of Product Manager of an Agile team) from this site.

Looking back at 2014: Agile Tour Brussels and XP Days Benelux

Agile Tour Brussels 2014

ATBru2014

Agile Tour Brussels is growing very quickly: the first year we had 90 participants; the second year we doubled that to 180 participants. In 2014 we welcomed 250 participants from Belgium, The Netherlands, UK and Luxembourg! We covered a lot of agile ground in 31 sessions over 6 tracks.

The program page contains slides from the presentation sessions. We have an extensive photo reportage by Patrick Van Est of Oniryx.

And we have a great video impression of the conference!

 XP Days Benelux 2014

Now in its 12th year, XP Days Benelux is still the place where experienced agilists gather to exchange ideas and techniques. 160 participants spent two days discussing, working, playing and relaxing to get fresh insights and ideas, away from the day to day grindstone.

The program pages contain outputs and presentations from the sessions. The feedback page contains conference feedback from participants, photos, blog entries and articles.

During the conference the artists of Getekend Verslag created giant, live sketchnotes.

 What will 2015 bring?

More of the same… and more different things. As you’d expect from an agile community, we keep improving, learning, trying new things. We’re already preparing the next events.

We hope to see you there!
