Promoting Agile Ideas since 1776

Meetings are monthly. Get meeting reminders by joining here.  We also have an Agile Philly Yahoo group.

  • Our events are Free, and Evening Meetings are usually on the Third Tuesday and  usually begin at 6:30 pm.  A sample agenda would be:
    • 6:30-7:00 pm: Eat & Greet & Network
    • 7:00-8:20 Main Topic/Speaker
    • 8:20-8:30 Q & A , Pack-Up, More Networking

    When we meet in Center City, our timeline may adjust (there's a $5 evening rate for Parking near the Municipal Services Building, at 15th & Vine):
    • 6-6:30pm: Eat & Greet with members of multiple usergroups
    • 6:30-8:20pm: AgilePhilly meeting (concurrent with other groups' meetings)
    • 8:20-9pm: Networking with everyone
  • And we often cross-post other User Group events in the Philadelphia, Bucks County and Jersey area. . . PB&J . . . so tell us of your event.


Our attempt with the group is to provide an environment where you can exchange ideas and meet with individuals involved in agile community.
