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 the end of 2014 AgileByExample was awarded the 10th best lean & agile conference in the world. Currently ABE consists of 2 days of lectures and a day of half-day Dojo workshops. Since 2013 we support ABELight miniconference organized by Agile Warsaw community.
