- XP Day 2005 : 28th & 29th November, London, U.K.
~~ More than XP. More than one day ~~
XP Day is a two day international conference about Agile Software
Development for software developers, project leaders, IT managers,
testers, architects, and coaches.
We encourage session proposals from experienced practitioners of agile
software development methods, such as Adaptive, Crystal, DSDM,
Feature-Driven Development, Lean, Scrum and Extreme Programming (XP).
XP Day provides a good opportunity for exchanging ideas and sharing
experiences, and is suited both for experienced practitioners and
those wanting an introduction Agile Software Development. The focus of
this conference is on practical knowledge, real-world experience and
active participation of all attendees.
XP Day is organised by the eXtreme Tuesday Club, a non-profit
organisation that publicises and shares knowledge about agile software
Why Organise a Session?
Organising a session is the best way to learn from such a conference.
It provides an opportunity to share your experiences, to get feedback
on your ideas, and to try new session formats.
Session organisers will get free admission to the conference.
We believe that the best way to learn is through hands-on experience
and therefore value interaction and audience participation over
PowerPoint presentations and papers. Successful sessions from previous
years have been tutorials, workshops, simulations and games. Sessions
will be organised into four tracks over two days. A session may be 45
minutes, 1½ hours or 3 hours in duration.
A session can address a topic that involves any stakeholder or aspect
of agile development. E.g. customers; business users; analysts;
managers; developers; deployment; support; recruitment.
The broad areas we would like to cover are:
* Introduction to Agile Development
* Inter-personal Techniques
* Advanced Practices
We will definitely include sessions on the following introductory
topics. We would prefer not to arrange these sessions ourselves and
therefore encourage submissions on these and other introductory topics
* What is Agile Development?
* Introduction to XP and/or other agile processes
* Test-Driven Development
Other possible session topics include, but are not limited to:
contracts for agile software projects; continuous process improvement;
transitioning to an agile process; the economics of agile software
development; techniques to improve pairing; scaling agile development
processes; agile free software and open source projects; developing
mission critical software; agile project management; tools and techniques.
