The theme of XP 2024 is “Reflect, Adapt, Envision”

This year’s theme encapsulates our journey through the last 25 years and our vision for the future. It’s an invitation to engage, learn, and shape the future of Agile together.

At its inception 25 years ago, the XP conference focused solely on eXtreme Programming. It quickly widened its scope to include all modern Agile approaches and Agility’s developing aspects. XP draws people from around the globe, providing a diverse and inclusive environment for learning and inspiring conversations.

Agile 101 Project Management

Join us in the picturesque town of Bolzano, Italy

For the first time in its long history, XP 2024 will be in Bolzano, Italy, a city in the South Tyrol province of north Italy, set in a valley amid hilly vineyards. It’s a gateway to the Dolomites mountain range in the Italian Alps. In the medieval city center, the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology features the Neolithic mummy called Ötzi the Iceman. Nearby is the imposing 13th-century Mareccio Castle, and the Duomo di Bolzano Cathedral with its Romanesque and Gothic architecture.

Open Access Publication
