AgileByExample 2018



In 2017 we moved to the largest cinema venue in Warsaw – Multikino Złote Tarasy, where the main room can hold over 700 participants. All the talks, with the exception of the keynotes, lightning talks and the discussion panel were held in two parallel tracks. We continued with the established ABE format – the keynotes were 50 mins long and the other talks were either 30 or 15 min.
