Agile Charm 2020 – Share your magic!

Agile Charm, Baltimore's Best Event

Agile Charm was kicked off on February 13, and as you can see by the photos, it was an amazing event. Hopefully this was the start of a wonderful annual Agile event where everyone can share in downtown Baltimore. Lot’s of wonderful speakers, some fun games, great networking and a chance to learn from others.

Darren Hoevel was the best dressed in an awesome blazer. I purchased George Dinwidie‘s new book, “Software Estimation without Guessing“. Also played and purchased the Tabi Game from April Jefferson and Brielle Maxwell.


To build and grow an agile community in charm city where we can share stories and learn from each other.
