Registration

We ask each participant to write a position paper, since writing a position paper before coming to an un-conference leads to better discussions because you, and other participants, have thought about what you want from the conference, and what topics you wish to explore during the conference, or how you plan to contribute.

This year we ask the following questions:

  1. What is your agile or coaching experience?
  2. What would you like to learn/explore at this event?
  3. How would you contribute?
  4. What is your superpower?
