The Agile2020 organizing committee has just gathered for our first onsite at the Hilton Orlando — the host hotel for the conference.
As we were walking around to work out which room would provide the best experience for Audacious Salon and Experience Reports, and how we should combine rooms to provide the space for attendees to congregate and share their stories and listen to one of the many brilliant speakers we have on our program, it reminded me of the American poet, Emily Dickinson, who once wrote, ‘I dwell in possibility’. You, too, can dwell in the possibility by speaking at the Agile2020 conference July 20-24, 2020 in Orlando, FL. We are currently accepting submissions until February 9th, 2020.
With so many tracks to choose from, you’re sure to find a platform to get your message out. Want to tell people about your personal journey? Submit an Experience Report, have insights into the Future of Agile? There’s a track for that, too. Simply head to the Agile Alliance website to the track that’s right for you.
Creating a diverse and well-rounded program and conference depends on people like you. If you have a desire to be a speaker for 2020, we ask that you put pen to paper, start internal conversations, or chew the cud with those around you, then put your fingers on the keyboard and submit your sessions. Remember — you have your own unique perspectives to share!
If you are uncertain about how to create an effective submission, there are two good examples to look at on the submission page (right after the timeline). If at any point you want to iterate (I know, that’s very Agile of you) on your submission, there are a host of track chairs and reviewers eager to help you out. Simply select “ask for feedback” when you enter your submission.
As a reminder, starting this year we have a single submission deadline – February 9th. If your submission is not in “Ready for Evaluation” on that date, it will not be considered for inclusion in the 2020 program.
If you’ve got an idea, concept, or pattern and you want to be a part of Agile2020, submit it to one of the many tracks and start on your path to possibility!
