Bridging Gaps at XP 2017

Taking up the rallying cry from Uncle Bob’s keynote at XP 2014 in Rome, XP 2017 will bring together agile people of all roles. By carefully balancing technical and methodological topics, we will provide a space where researchers, coaches, product people and software developers can share their experiences with Agile in order to uncover better ways of developing software.
