The 2-day session will offer:
- Opening and closing keynotes by Alistair Cockburn focused on the “Heart of Agile”
- Speakers, presentations and discussion tracks for Collaborate, Deliver, Reflect, and Improve:
- Tutorials – Speakers will provide presentations and facilitated conversations on hot topics and key trends on Agile principles and practices. This is an opportunity for experienced practitioners to demonstrate and share their knowledge in a specific topic, solution, or technique.
- Collaborative Conversation - Joint problem-solving with other experienced participants in a topic. A facilitated peer-to-peer event, where everyone has something to contribute to the topic, though may not be an expert at the topic. The coordinator proposes a topic in a facilitation structure, the attendees work in small groups (typically 4-8 people), and mutually exchange and collaborate their outputs.
- Experience Reports – contain first-hand information and reflection: “We saw this…,” “Our team did that…,” or “We learned the following from our experience…” Experience reports serve as an exchange opportunity for practitioners to learn from others. The focus of these discussions is to share successes, failures, and lessons learned.
- Open Space – Ongoing facilitated discussions on topics that are suggested by the attendees.
- Sponsor Exhibition - Sponsors will have specialists and experts on site to discuss their products and services and share industry and solution insights, and experiences. Sponsors will be available throughout the conference for meetings, discussions, and demonstrations.
