Asbury Agile is a one day, single track conference for web professionals and students happening on Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012 at Watermark in Asbury Park, NJ.
The goal of Asbury Agile is to bring together the Jersey web community down the Jersey Shore to hang out in an informal and friendly environment, 2 stories above the Asbury Park boardwalk, overlooking the ocean, to learn, network and share experiences.
A successful Asbury Agile contributes to the growth of the tech community at the Jersey Shore and surrounding areas, promotes “best practices” in application design, development, & marketing, and showcases local people and businesses in the community (NJ, NYC, Philadelphia).
It's a small conference (approx. 100 attendees) with a relaxed, informal feel inspired by conferences like Brooklyn Beta.

Special thanks to the speakers, sponsors and partners for supporting Asbury Agile, and to Watermark for hosting the event.
