The Agile2016 Submission System is Open!

Added to The Alliance

This day has finally arrived and we’re all excited to let you know that the submission system for the Agile 2016 conference has opened! You should all rush out immediately and begin to submit the sessions you’ve been thinking about, considering, and generally obsessing over since the last conference.

For those of you who are first-time submitters, we have prepared some advice for you about the process and the expectations of reviewers that is available on the Agile2016 conference site. Much of this information will also be valuable to those who have submitted before, so please take a look.

And the information that everyone is most concerned with – the timeline:

About the Author


Hi, I'm Brian Button, and I've spent most of my 30+ year career deeply embedded in the Agile world. I started as a developer, writing realtime C/C++ code for some very interesting products and projects. After doing that for a while I moved into the Agile world around 1999 by I accepting a position with one of the first Extreme Programming consulting companies.

Through them, I traveled the western world and the US teaching, training, and mentoring companies in their adoption of XP and agile. Since then, I've worked on team and organization transformations in several companies while still doing my best to remain at least tangentially technical. Eventually the lure of tech called me back, and I've been a technical leader for organizations in my last two roles. My happy place lies at the intersection of Agile and technology, which is why I'm such a fan of XP.

Giving back to the community is very important to me, so I've volunteered through Agile Alliance for the last 15 years or so. I've been involved with running the Agile20xx conference series many times, and I've served as a Director on the Agile Alliance Board for the last three years and was fortunate enough to have just been re-elected to serve a second term.
