We are Agile Connecticut, the CT Chapter of
the APLN, a nationwide federation of users groups dedicated to
spreading and enabling Agile software development practices worldwide.
Our history locally goes back to the summer
of 2007 when we held our first meeting at the Marriot in Farmington
Since then we have held
a meeting almost every month.
We usually meet on the 1st Tuesday
of the month, but be sure to check the Next Meeting page
to be sure of the date and time.
We start monthly meetings promptly at 6PM
and end at 8PM. (Lots of people hang and talk after 8PM, so plan
on lingering if you want more informal networking time.)
