Tampa Bay Agile Meetup Membership Grows 300%

When I joined the Tampa Bay Agile Meetup in March of 2012, there were just about 70-ish members.  Today, there are over 270 members.  That’s about 300% growth in 18 months!  To me, this is a great indicator of the interest and adoption of Agile across the Tampa Bay community.  Just over a year ago, we used to see less than 10 people attend a meetup and now we see almost 50 people at each meetup.  I call that reason enough to celebrate or rather … blog about it.

So, if you haven’t figured it out already, this blog post is indeed a shameless plug for our meetup group, of which I am co-organizer.  The Salesforce guys founded the meetup group and got it off the ground and now Valpak and AgileThought are partnering to carry the baton, finding speakers and sponsoring food and facility for the meetups.

If you are local to Tampa Bay area and interested in all things Agile, please join us.  Or, if plan to be in the Tampa Bay area and wish to present on an Agile-related topic, please contact us.
