Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Agility

At AgilePhilly, we have been Promoting Agile Ideas since 1776

Meetings are monthly. Get meeting reminders by joining here.  

  • Our events are Free for those who RSVP.  We have Evening Meetings in the Western Suburbs, usually on the Third Tuesday.  They 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
  • Our AgilePhilly events are those with the Liberty Bell Logo.  And center-city-downtown is the logo of Big Buildings - APCD But we often cross-post other User Group events in the Philadelphia, Bucks County and Jersey area. . . PB&J . . . and others, so tell us of your event to list here alongside ours.
  • We are always on the lookout for new ideas and new topics to energize our discussions.


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