Agility Feat - Custom Software Development

The AgilityFeat blog

At AgilityFeat we are more than just designers and coders. We are also thought leaders. Our team has spoken at numerous conferences around the US, Europe, and Latin America. We are leading the way when it comes to applying agile methodologies to nearshore software development in Latin America. Our blog is where we share those lessons with you, as well as news about what our team is up to.
