Even more, a large part of the program is created by the participants via Open Space. So please bring your ideas, games or whatever format you want to suggest for running your own session. For finding a place to break out discussions we will be opening the cosy ALE lounge. And besides we will run a dedicated kids & spouse program – feel free to bring your family with you, because the family program we can make available at not additional cost.

Parallel to regular talks and Open Space everyone is invited to get their hands dirty – throughout the 3 unconference days we will run a real agile software development spaceshipping software every hour on the hour. Last but not least with Henrik Kniberg, Jim McCarthy and Siraj Sirjauddin we will enjoy three inspiring keynotes

If you are a student and want to help us on-site, but still attend at no cost, please let us know.
