Agiles 2015 Organizing Team invites you to participate as an exhibitor. The Latin-American Agile Methodologies Community wants to hear your ideas, experiences and learn from the techniques you apply to work.

    1- Beginners: People who don’t know about it or are just getting to know about the topic.

    3- Experts: People with wide knowledge about the topic and are looking for ways to innovate.
  5. Type of Session:
    1- Lecture: Speaker presents a topic, usually using slides and in a determined moment of the session he gives the opportunity for Q&A. Duration: 45 minutes

    3 Workshop: An interactive session, with great participation from the audience. Duration: 90 minutes.

    Hello guys,

    I’m happy you guys are doing this event in Uruguay. I wish really a very good event.

    I would like to participate and I lost the date for submission.

    Is it still possible to submit anyway?

    To be frank, I really want to go to the event, but due to my responsibilities with Agile Brazil, I’m not yet sure if I’ll really be able not to go to Agile Brazil. It’s a shame that the events are conflicting dates.

    Anyway, I wish you all the best.

    Thanks,
    Samuel

      Hi Samuel,

      First of all, sorry for the delay in the response!

      We’re accepting new submissions until 9th July, so you’re still have the chance to send us your proposal.

      You’re totally right about the two agile conferences with conflicting schedule. I hope we will have more opportunities for sharing with Brazilian community in the future. Anyway, we’re looking forward to see people from your country this year in our event in Montevideo.

      I wish you all the best with Agile Brazil!

      Cheers,
      Jorge
