Why Agile Slovenia

When you fall in love with agile...it lasts forever.

Agile Slovenia will be celebrating its 10th anniversary next year, and during this time, it has proven to be the number one agile event in Slovenia.

Besides connecting with the agile community and meet like-minded people, there are additional reasons why you should attend Agile Slovenia this year, no matter your role in the organization:

  • Learn, relearn and unlearn to sharpen your agile axe and keep your knowledge up-to-date.
  • Bring inspiration and ideas to your team and make your team or organization (even more) agile.
  • Understand how you can build your product in a better way.
  • Hear about practical examples of creating psychological safety in teams from agile coaches that worked in worldwide known companies, such as LEGO, Spotify, IBM.
  • Gain access to the latest knowledge of agile and hear about best practices in foreign companies.
  • And to have fun, of course.

If you need some more convincing, here are a few words from our Captain Voranc Kutnik, founder and organizer of Agile Slovenia.

How Agile Slovenia was born

It all started in 2011 when I fell in love with agile and figured out that there is almost no agile community in Slovenia. I felt lonely, although we had occasional meetups with a few other Scrum enthusiasts. So I decided to do something in this area, and the idea about the Agile Slovenia conference was born.

It was first organized in autumn 2012. My goal was to organize an event where people from Slovenia and abroad could meet other like-minded colleagues, share ideas and experiences and learn from the best speakers I could persuade to come to Slovenia.
It was not easy, but I convinced Jurgen Appelo to come to Slovenia and give a keynote titled “How To Change The World,” perfectly fitting my vision of changing the world. OK, not the entire world, but only Slovenia. Although I had zero knowledge on how to organize a conference, let alone an agile conference, Agile Slovenia 2012 was a tremendous success with more than 100 visitors and fantastic speakers. On the right is a photo of Jurgen during his keynote speech. As you can see, attendees were primarily men and more or less from the IT sector. That’s how it all started.

I’m still not sure how I did it, but I think my enthusiasm helped me to get speakers like Dave Snowden, Ángel Medinilla, Stephen Parry, Jutta Eckstein, Pia-Maria Thorén, Oana Juncu, Jenni Jepsen, Riina Hellström, Jürgen De Smet and Alize Hofmeester in the following years.

I’ve met so many great people because of the conference. I consider a lot of them good friends, which is a big enough reward for all the energy and efforts invested in the organization every year.

Plans for the future

Although much has changed since 2012, the vision stays the same, to change Slovenia for the better, using agile, of course.

Agile Slovenia is now organized by CorpoHub, a team of fantastic people that live and breathe agile. We work for months to get the best possible speakers and arrange engaging workshops to organize a supreme conference every year. We promise to continue with the work in the future to stay the best agile event on the sunny side of the Alps.
