About AOE 2019

We have aimed AOE 2019 towards bringing Agile awareness in the Eastern parts of India and South East Asia. AOE is Agile of East - where we have a exciting population and culture of Agility.

Additionally, Agile is not only for software, but it has its AOE (Area of Effect) across Industries and that is why we love this name even more.

All applicable content from the conference will be made available at ZoneConnect Platform and also through the Agile Alliance website as well.

AOE 2019 Speakers

Hear and learn from the Industry Leaders in Agile Space – across the Globe! More speakers are being added, as we get confirmation! If you are keen – please submit your proposal! We will be happy to discuss with you.
