Attending XP 2021

What is XP 2021?

2021 marks 20 years since the publication of the Agile Manifesto, making it a good time to reflect on the past, the present and the future of Agile. The strength of XP is the way it enables conversations and the exchange of ideas between academics and industry practitioners. After the challenges of 2020 and during these times of ongoing change it is as important as ever for us to come together and share what we have learned over the last year. Having XP online for a second year gives us the opportunity to include a global and diverse audience, and we particularly encourage participation from new contributors and new perspectives.

How do I reset my password on the conference platform?

You can reset your password by clicking THIS LINK. Please note this is not connected to your Agile Alliance membership.

What materials will I need to take part?

Ideally, reliable Internet connection, a webcam if you wish to have face – to – face interactions with participants, and a headset with microphone.


What platforms will you be using?

XP 2021 will use Swoogo as the virtual environment. Sessions will take place in zoom

Are there browser requirements for attending the conference?

Swoogo’s preferred browser is Chrome or Firefox and can also be successfully used on Safari, Brave, or Microsoft Edge. We do not recommend using Internet Explorer because that browser isn’t actively updated anymore and therefore compatibility isn’t optimal with Swoogo.

For best experience we recommend the following:

  • Confirm you have a reliable internet connection. At least 20 Mbps  is ideal for download. This can easily be determined by a quick speed test via google.
  • Ensure you have the most updated version of your browser and test your sound/microphone quality ahead of time.

What is the dress code?

Business casual and comfortable. Make sure your background is not cluttered and you have good lighting on your face, not behind it for your one-on-one meetings.

How can I interact with the attendees?

There will be an opportunity to interact with attendees during workshops and in the Social events, 1-on-1 meetings and other social events. Check the social page for more info!
