Since 2001, Scrum Alliance has supported the agile movement as the only member-driven nonprofit certifying body in the agile space. As a trade association, we were founded and funded by the community for the community, a privilege we take seriously. We continue to nurture the agile movement by providing education, advocacy, research, community and connection.
Every Superhero has an origin story. Many of those stories involve an individual coming into their power suddenly, sometimes unexpectedly. An ordinary life is transformed by an extraordinary event that sets off a chain reaction of experiences which challenge the long-held beliefs of the hero and lead to a new understanding of who they could become. Our hero discovers that they can be more than they ever dreamed and that they feel more themselves when they discover their power.

CalgaryAGILE meets once a month and provides a focal point for the use of Agile methods in software development organizations in Calgary. Our members include software developers, managers, business professionals, researchers, students and people from all walks of life. We currently have over 2500 members with 60 to 80 members attending each of our sessions.
The group has a local focus and our meetings promote networking within Calgary's Agile community. We encourage members to ask questions, offer to speak, propose alternative meeting styles and participate fully. Each meeting starts with a half-hour "meet and greet" session where members can socialize and have fun. This is followed by a one hour talk by a distinguished guest.
CalgaryAGILE is run by volunteers but we still need to collect sponsorship funds to pay for space, food, technical equipment, our meetup group and other miscellaneous expenses. We are looking for sponsors and are hoping that you might be interested based on your history of involvement with Agile methods.
Sponsorship is $1000 per season.
