What is Dojo?

Dojo is a workshop day held before the conference that will allow you to actually practice agile skills. Learn by doing, meet great agile senseis and step out of your comfort zone.

There will be 9 parallel 3–3,5-hour workshops in the morning and in the afternoon—every participant can attend two sessions.

The Dojo tickets are limited by training room capacity and there are around 200 tickets this year. First come, first served so don’t hesitate to buy your ticket.


Who are the trainers?

Most of them are known coaches and trainers, chosen from the call for trainers. We also have a few invited speakers delivering workshops.

How to sign in?

The complete list of workshops will be available by mid-September. The Dojo enrolment page will be available for registered participants.


Where & When?

The conference will take place in two locations—one for the Dojo and another for the main conference. The social events will be held elsewhere.
