To promote the usage of Agile methods and practices in the Philippines, CodeLean, Inc. has sponsored an initiative aptly named Agile.ph.
“The benefits will be huge for the local IT sector if Agile practices are adopted here, with the country being one of the world’s top software outsourcing destinations,” says Danish Peter Andersen, Scrum Master at CodeLean.
Agile.ph has hit the ground running by bringing in Dutch Agile expert Bas Vodde to head a two-day course on Scrum, an Agile methodology that deals with how projects are organized and planned. The course will be held in the Boardroom of the Dusit Hotel, Makati City on April 14 to 15, 2009.
“With this first big event, we hope that the Agile.ph movement gains momentum and starts to make Agile practices more widely used in the country,” says Ole Ronberg, CEO in CodeLean
CodeLean provides IT solutions to clients in different industries. It was established in 2008 and is headquartered in Copenhagen.
