AgileByExample has been organised since 2011. It all started with 125 agilists in a small Warsaw music club. Since then, each year ABE was growing. In 2013 we introduced the Dojo, an additional day of conference with multiple half-day workshops. In 2015 and 2016 there were over 500 attendees during the conference and over 200 people during the Dojo.
The key trademark of ABE is the “by example” theme—the conference provides case studies and experience reports of real world struggles with adopting agile methods and techniques. Beside that ABE is known for the audio/video quality (organized in cinema rooms with huge screens and superb sound systems) and top-notch organization.
In the end of 2014 AgileByExample was awarded the 10th best lean & agile conference in the world in a ranking made by Vasco Duarte.
Previous editions were keynoted by many first class speakers including Gojko Adzic, Jurgen Appelo, Jim Benson, prof. Andrzej Blikle, Bjarte Bogsnes, Tom Gilb, prof. Andrzej Koźmiński, Mary Poppendieck and Jeff Sutherland.
Since 2013 we have been supporting a half-day miniconference for 80-100 people organized by Agile Warsaw community.
