I would like to encourage people who have had an interesting story to tell about their agile project to propose an experience report for Agile2007 conference.
An experience report captures the story of a real agile project, summarizing what happened on the project and the key learning points. These reports allow practitioners to share their practical advice and guidance with other teams.
To make a proposal you need to write a two page summary of your experience which should include the following:
- Title and one-paragraph summary.
- Brief description of the project background
- Your story about what happened, focusing on the most interesting and unique aspects. This is the meat of the proposal!
- Conclusions: what you learned, what you'd do next time, and advice for others.
Save your proposal in PDF format and then submit this using our on-line submission system by January 26th.
If your proposal is selected for inclusion in the conference then the Agile2007 review team will work with you to help you shape your proposal into a crafted experience report for publication in the Agile 2007 conference proceedings. We aim to have a final report that reads like an interesting story, explaining what happened, why you think it happened, who it happened to, and why we should care.
Please do not propose a report unless you can attend the conference which runs in Washington DC 13-17 August as you will be expected to present a summary of your experience report at the conference. The Agile Alliance who run the conference offer presenters one free registration per report to help facilitate your attendance.
