Hands-on Agile 2019 Conference — Survey Results Are in: It’s Berlin by 2:1

Hands-on Agile 2019 Conference

Almost three years into building this community, I believe we might now have achieved the critical mass to organize a great conference — the Hands-on Agile 2019 Conference. Currently, I would target the second quarter of 2019 for the first Hands-on Agile conference. To reduce complexity, I would plan for Berlin as its location although London might be an alternative.

Update 2018-08-12: The survey results are in — it is Berlin, see below.

Hands-on Agile 2019 Conference Survey — The What, When & Where?

Update 2018-08-12: The Survey Results Are in

We asked 4,500 European subscribers to the Food for Agile Thought newsletter to participate in the Hands-on Agile 2019 Conference survey, and about 350 answered the call:

  • 65 percent of the respondents voted for Berlin over London.
  • The Hands-on Agile 2019 Conference would be 2-days conference on a Thursday & Friday. (Including a workshop track on Tuesday and Wednesday.)
  • The most wanted topics are business agility, “scaling agile,” and coaching techniques including games.
  • The price range will likely be between € 250 and € 400 per ticket.
  • The majority of respondents preferred a hybrid event with a preselected speaker track as well as a Barcamp-like track.
  • Respondents expressed their willingness to support the conference: from spreading the news to volunteering at the venue.

Next step: The next step is the identification of a suitable venue. Once that task is accomplished, we can start talking to sponsors. I will keep you posted via the newsletter.

  1. Julie, first of all, we need to find a suitable location. (We are making progress in that respect.) Once that is accomplished, we will build the initial website, and we will be able to open the submission process. I expect this might happen in January 2019.
