You’re invited to an Agile Camp. It will be an event like no other.

 

Dates

27 - 29 September 2019

Location

Baobab resort in Diani, Kenya

 

Over the last year, Agile KE has created a community in which we discover and explore the possibilities for building better products, teams and organisations. Agility sits at the heart of our community. The Agile community in Kenya is blooming and becoming more fluent in applying agile. This is your invitation to be a pioneer adapting Agile practice for your environment.

Here’s why this event will be especially valuable, we have a big question for you: How can we help each other, our teams and our organizations unravel the questions around agile (even if we feel stuck) and build your future work environment? We have all the wisdom and knowledge among us, let’s answer that question together. You're invited to explore your passion, challenges and rewards on how we might create agile environments by utilizing what we already know about Agile, what makes us curious and what it truly means for someone to be in an agile space.

We’ll use the Open Space setup to provide just enough structure for us  to create an engaging agenda, plan the outcomes, and design for full participation — together. That means the outcomes will be exactly what you need, because you will create them. If you prefer a conference where you can sit and listen to expert lectures, this isn’t it.

Agile Camp is a practitioner-run conference for peer-to-peer learning and exploration. It’s your conference, so there will be no agenda until you arrive! There are no speakers, only participants.

Who is it for?

You don’t have to be an expert to propose a topic or ask a question at the Agile camp. You are simply inviting people into a conversation with you - other people who are also passionate about your topic or question. These conversations can build knowledge, and often lead to future collaborations; Open Space is great for networking! It has the feel of a good coffee break, where people are free to come and go from conversations as they please, yet it has a structure that helps you to know what conversations are happening so that you can join up with people interested in the same things as you. Are you facing challenges and want to get some perspective from other practitioners in Agile spaces, or just hear how they do things? 

We're inviting you, because whoever comes is exactly the right people.

What people are saying about the Camp:

I’d love to experience an open space camp and get answers on how I can better my practices as an agile tester.
I would like to learn other people’s experiences on their journey toward agile adaptation, the challenges they have faced and the successes they have realized.
I’ll offer my two cents on progressive technologies that I believe should be incorporated in many Kenyan Corporates.
