Danube supports conference, agile community with third year of sponsorship

BELLEVUE, Wash., May 18 /PRNewswire/ — Danube Technologies, Inc., (http://www.danube.com), the leader in software and training for the Scrum method of agile software development, today announces its continued commitment to helping organizations improve processes with Scrum through a sponsorship at the Agile 2009 Conference. This year’s conference will be held August 24 – 28, in Chicago. To learn more about Danube events and activities at the conference, please visit http://www.danube.com/agile09.

Agile 2009 is the premier global gathering for independent software vendors, consultants, and in-house corporate development teams to hear from world-renowned agile thought leaders on such diverse topics as agile metrics, scaling for large installations, and more. Building on the success of last year’s conference in Toronto, which was attended by more than 1,500 software professionals, this year’s conference in Chicago once again brings some of the biggest names in the agile community together for a week of dialogue and learning.

Danube Certified Scrum Trainer Dr. Dan Rawsthorne, PhD will participate in two presentations at the event:

  • “Product Owner or Product Manager or Both?” panel discussion, Monday, 4:00 to 5:30 p.m., in the Crystal C room
  • “Agile Metrics,” Wednesday, August 26th, 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., in the Crystal C room.

“Danube remains committed to spreading software success with Scrum and our third year as a sponsor of the Agile conference is testament to that,” said Laszlo Szalvay, president of Danube. “We’ve seen Scrum increase in popularity by leaps and bounds over the past year and we’re excited to see that reflected in this year’s conference.”

Through ScrumWorks, its family of Scrum project management tools, and its ScrumCORE team of five Certified Scrum Trainers, Danube has helped hundreds of organizations transform their cultures with Scrum. Its flagship product, ScrumWorks(R) Pro, replicates the benefits of small team Scrum for distributed and collocated teams alike, while also containing the power to help enterprise-sized organizations manage the releases of complex projects with multiple constituent parts. In March, ScrumWorks Pro was honored with a JOLT Award in the Project Management category at the Dr. Dobb’s 19th annual JOLT Product Excellence Awards. To complement the tool, the ScrumCORE team offers dozens of public Certified Scrum training courses around the globe each year, in addition to many private, on-site coaching engagements.

“Danube has been a valuable contributor to the Agile 200X conference series in the past,” said Phil Brock, managing director of the Agile Alliance. “We look forward to Danube’s support of the Agile Alliance to help make this year’s conference the best one yet.”
