Agile2005 is an open forum welcoming all agile methodologies, new and old, with sessions for all roles including executives, managers, programmers and testers. This year we focus on uniting the agile community by merging the Agile Development conference and XP/Agile Universe into our tagline for 2005--Agile United. These two conferences have earned the reputation as the place to go for balanced and up-to-the-minute information on the agile end of the industry.

The merger of XP Agile Universe with the Agile Development Conference has resulted in a record number of submissions and a very strong program. We have an excellent collection of tutorials, workshops, experience reports and research papers. Some of the tutorial and workshop presenters include Jim Highsmith, Ken Schwaber, Ron Jeffries, Mary Poppendieck, Rebecca Wirfs-Brock and many more.
