ALI traces its roots to the Dublin Agile community from the early to mid 2010’s. We have grown to become the largest Agile / Lean meetup group in Ireland with several thousand members. Our meetups have been a mix of presentations by local practitioners and international experts, workshops, lean coffee and lightning talks. We were one of the first – possibly the first – to use videoconferencing to bring international experts to our local audience. In 2017 we established a conference. This has grown year on year and has been recognised as one of the best Agile conferences in the world by TechBeacon.
ALI2022, our most recent conference featured speakers and delegates from around the world. In recent years we have experimented with expanding locally – by running events in Carlow, Galway – and internationally with a conference in Frankfurt. ALI is volunteer-led with a small cohort coordinating the conference supported by 30+ other loyal volunteers who are dispersed around the world.
The Agile-Lean Ireland Conference 2024 will take place Páirc Uí Chaoimh, Cork, Ireland on the 2nd of October 2024.
