Call for Sessions

What are we looking for?

What are you looking for? What would make it a WOW session for you and our participants?

We’re interested in:

  • Cases from organisations: You introduced Agile in your organisation. How did you do that? What happened? What made it a succes? Which challenges did you face?
  • Hardcore tech sessions: It’s called Extreme Programming (XP)days for a reason. So we welcome hands-on sessions on new programming languages like Rust, Julia or Elixir and tips and tricks on tried and tested languages like C++, Java or PHP.
  • Experiences with new and old techniques like backlog refinement, Mob Programming or NoEstimates. What worked, what didn’t? Why? What have you learned?
  • Unexpected ideas from other disciplines and sciences like HR or Healthcare. How can we cross borders? What lessons have we missed? How can we collaborate better with other disciplines?
  • Ask for help from other participants. Any challenges, technical or social, affecting you at work that you would like to get some advice on. At XPDays there are plenty of people struggling with the same issues willing to help.
  • Pushing the limits of techniques and organisations, doing the impossible. What did you try to challenge commonly accepted assumptions?
  • Back to basics. What happens for example if we really take Extreme Programming values of Simplicity, Commmunication, Feedback, Courage and Respect seriously? Or if we do Scrum the way it was meant to be.
  • Taking back agile. What does agile really mean to you and why is it important?
  • Questioning agile. Where, when and why would you not use agile methods? Why? What can we learn about context and applicability?
  • What is next? Is agile nearing its end, do we need to look beyond? What do we see at the horizon?

Get CREATIVE! Last year we had a Leadership track to develop new training for leaders, a coding room and an Open Space. This year we are looking forward to all your other creative ideas and we even booked De Vernieuwing as extra room at Kapellerput. A nice workshop room with 3 small break out alcoves.

What would you like to create here?

The XP Days community loves highly interactive sessions where everyone participates and learns from each other. And sometimes we just love sinking into a chair and listen to someone telling a captivating story.
