The Conference

a day of Thought Experiments & Real Experiences 
20th April 2019

First time was a charm, second was an experience, third's going to change the way you think about agility. #APGI2018 saw 250+ participants, 48 sessions, and 58 speakers; #APGI2019 aims to address a different monster. 

At APGI, we believe in bringing understanding through experience. We understand that though perfection is not attainable, if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence and we strive hard to exceed expectations every time. The APGI conference aims to bring about Agile awareness and bring concurring people together.

 

Explore, discuss and learn about the key variants of Agile from the experts and catch the Agile pioneers in action.
