Call for Speakers

The 9th edition of Agile Portugal 2018 will be held in the beautiful city of Porto, Portugal, on the 25th of May, 2018. The conference will take place at Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto (FEUP).

This year, Agile Portugal 2018 will also be co-located with XP 2018, one of the most recognized Agile conferences. Also, we will be counting with the valuable support of the DevOps Lisbon and DevOps Porto communities.

We encourage you to participate as a speaker and share your experience on a topic of your expertise, by submitting a talk, one that is either inspiring, controversial, or thought-provoking. You choose!

We will have an Agile track and a DevOps track this year. For the DevOps track we are looking for submissions around any of the CALMS topics: Culture, Automation, Lean, Measurement and Sharing.

We'd love to see DevOps case studies providing clear context, what challenges you were facing, what steps were taken and what the results were.
