The conference is held on March 17th - 18th 2010 at ICT-building, Turku.
During the conference you will find out what is the hottest hot in the agile software development world right now. The conference starts with hands-on tutorials and workshops on Wednesday, while the pragmatic presentations on Thursday reveal how the big players use agile methods and how You can adapt the methods in Your own projects. There's something for both agile experts and agile newcomers. The conference also provides an excellent networking opportunity by means of a conference dinner.
Feedback from Turku Agile Day '09 (www.turkuagileday.fi/past/2009) suggested that we should provide more hands-on sessions for the participants. Having this valuable feedback, we decided to answer to the queries. On Wednesday we will provide hands-on workshops 'for everyone' - from development practices (continuous integration, test-driven development) to testing practices (exploratory testing). If you wonder how to guide your development to get the story done, Acceptance-Test-Driven Development workshop is meant for you. For those interested in Lean SW development and prioritizing backlog items, the 'Gaming track' (Lean Manufacturing Game, Business Value Game) should provide the most value.

AGILE SW DEVELOPMENT IN A NUTSHELL
Agile SW development has been one of the top topics in SW industry lately. The development methodology has raised from the realization that waterfall-like project management methodologies do not reflect to the real world requirements fast enough. Thus, one main concerns of agile sw development is to be adaptable - any sw project should not fear change, since change is evitable in a SW project. Agile aims to tackle the changing requirements by releasing early and often and demonstrating the process to the customer. Getting feedback from the customers is crucial for the project success.
Wednesday, March 17th 2010, is a hands-on day with 8 workshop sessions. See http://www.turkuagileday.fi/conference for the schedule
Thursday, March 18th 2010, is a full-day conference with 10 speakers from all over the world.
