Central Ohio Agile Association Presents
The Path to Agility conference was developed to further COHAA's mission to promote the use of Agile practices and principles. COHAA has engaged a number of national and regional Agile thought leaders to provide session content focused on a mix of business, technical, and/or management topics. Whether you are well along the path or just starting out, this conference will help guide you in the right direction. Register now and begin to plan YOUR path to agility.
We are extremely excited to continueThe Path to Craftsmanship! Agile methods often cover how we communicate, how we organize our work, and how we track progress. They unfortunately fall short of telling us how we should actually write software that can both meet our users needs today and be easily extended to meet their needs in the future. The software craftsmanship movement has emerged to help developers focus on the key principles and practices that improve their ability to write code. We are fortunate to welcome national and regional leaders of the Craftsmanship movement to Columbus, Ohio for a single day conference, completely focused on improving our software craftsmanship. This will be held on Tuesday, May 20th.
