The Kellogg Center - Gallaudet University

1800 Florida Ave NE, Washington, DC 20002

AgileDC is the largest Agile community organized event in the Washington, DC metro area. For more than a decade, this one-day regional conference has brought together thought leaders and practitioners from government, not-for-profits, and private industry alike.

As a not-for-profit event, all post-expense revenue raised each year through sponsorships and registration has been distributed back to the community through non-profit agencies.  Organizations like The World Central Kitchen (, founded by Jose Andres, embrace the values and principles the AgileDC Conference strives to support. We encourage our community to help fill in this year’s void through an individual contribution.

Implementing Commercial, Off-the-Shelf Systems-Is Agility Possible?

Many individuals who have worked as part of an initiative to implement off-the-shelf systems have heard that agile approaches can’t work - that agile only works when building solutions from scratch or adding functionality to these systems.

We believe, and have seen, that agile approaches are actually preferable to traditional waterfall in these instances, and the differences between proprietary and customization of commercially available system development have more in common than not.
