18th International Conference on Agile Software Development

Join the world’s oldest Agile conference!

XP, the International Conference on Agile Software Development, has been touring through Europe for more than a decade. Every year, the conference takes place in a different European country. In 2017 the conference will come to Germany. codecentric is honored to be the local organizer of XP 2017 in Cologne.

Uncovering better ways of developing software

Taking up the rallying cry from Uncle Bob's keynote at XP 2014 in Rome, XP 2017 will bring together people of all roles dealing with the creation of software. By carefully balancing technical and methodological topics, we will provide a space where people "doing it" and people "helping others do it", but also people "needing it" can share their experiences with Agile Software Development in order to uncover better ways of developing software.


The program is still work in progress.
