Agile 2006 will be an exciting conference about techniques and technologies, attitudes and policies, research and experience, and the management and development sides of agile software development. The agile approach focuses on delivering business value early in the project lifetime and being able to incorporate emergent requirements. It accentuates the use of rich, informal communication channels and frequent delivery of running, tested systems, while attending to the human component of software development.
Agile 2006 gives attendees access to the latest thinking in this domain, and bridges communities that rarely get a proper chance to exchange ideas and thoughts. It brings together researchers from labs and academia with executives, managers, and developers in the trenches of software development. The conference is not about a single methodology or approach, but rather provides a forum for the exchange of information regarding all agile development technologies.
