On August 26, the first brick was laid in the construction of the Agile community in Latvia.
The methodology in Latvia is widely known and used by many companies, but for some reason this event was organized only now.
The event raised a lot of interesting questions and discussions. The topic is interesting, there are people to share with. It is also necessary to visit other countries for similar events, to learn from experience.
