Meet our tracks

In 2016, Agile Brazil goes back to basics to discuss the deeper roots of agility and invites its participants to reflect on what they practice in their day-to-day.

Submitting a session will also be a exercise of going back to the roots of the movement! Take a look at the tracks that bring the values of the Agile Manifesto with an addition for trends:

Session Types

  • Presentation

    Tradition also has its place.

    “Presentations” are sessions displaying subjects, ideas and/or experiences in a way that favours the understanding and the reception of the speaker’s knowledge. It is the classic format for conference sessions and it requires entertaining oratory while bringing value to the attendees. In this type of session, there are no restrictions regarding the amount of time the speaker should dedicate to answering questions. In any case, we recommend setting aside at least 5 minutes at the end of this type of session for that.
  • Hands On

    Because teaching also brings learning.

    “Hands On” sessions are workshops and tutorials with practical activities and high interaction from the attendees. Its main goal is that the attendants learn from practice, taking part in such activities. A workshop is an opportunity to learn from other attendees about a relevant topic, discussing new ideas that can expand a given technique and that can be shared with the community. Tutorials are instructor-led interactive classes designed to provide practical knowledge to the attendees in a way that they can use it right away on their work routine.
  • Are you sure of it?

    Provocative? Enjoy challenging the status quo?

    “Are you sure of it?” sessions aim to instigate community’s debate and reflection over a theme. The speaker may or may not provide answers, but above all he/she will present an innovative or disruptive perspective on the status quo. These sessions are dynamic and consist of a 20 minutes presentation, followed by audience participation – either through questions to the speaker, or exposing others points of view – fostering a great forum for knowledge generation. This type of session is designed for people who believe that only the right questions get answers that can make a difference.
  • Be creative!

    Innovative session formats are also welcome!

    The other submission types don’t seem to fit with the mechanics you would like to use to present your content? That is exactly the idea of the “Be creative!” session type. Your only restrictions here are a room and a timebox. How you will use them to reach your goal is entirely up to you – or, in this case, up to your imagination 🙂 (In case of changing the room setup, the previous layout must be restored still within your 50 minutes timebox).
  • Duel

    #‎AgileBR‬ provides the arena - and you bring up a good battle.

    “Duels” are thought provoking sessions that will promote discussions and have great potential to bring new insights, even to the most experienced agilists. It consists of a single submission where 2 speakers defend opposite views of a subject for 15 minutes each, followed by 20 minutes of discussion with the audience.

How to take the best experience out of Agile Brazil?

Agile Brazil is a conference for participants with all levels of experience. You might be very experienced in a subject and novice in another. Learn how to take better advantage of that and choose between...

  • Novice

    Someone who is just getting started with Agile methods and is looking forward to build up his knowledge base on the theme.
  • Advanced Beginner

    People who have experienced agile methods in their projects and can see what works and what doesn’t in their own experience.
  • Competent

    Those who have enough experience to understand the contextual application of agile practices and are interested in getting to know other contexts.
  • Proficient

    Agilists who have a deeper understanding of the theme and base their decisions on their instincts developed by their experiences and in agile principles rather than on processes or known practices.
  • Experienced

    Agilists who have a deeper understanding of the theme, to the extent of leading or helping a team in adopting its practices.

And if you would like an extra help to find that tailor made special session, we still have tags
