Agile Software Development is about working in self-organized, cross functional teams. Within Agile Finland, we share a lot of great tips on being and becoming Agile, and this conference focuses on the technical, team-level-doing side of Agile. What should our architecture and design work look like? Is technical leadership different from other facilitation? What are the essential practices for effective working on code? How do we build pipelines and test automation, and monitor production? How do we learn to deliver incrementally and what practices really support that?

Tech Excellence brings together technical agile disciplines from software crafting to devops and domain driven design with focus on team level practices and skills for agile software development. Agile Software Development without top-notch technical practices doesn't deliver what we hope with Agile.

Code of Conduct

All attendees, speakers, sponsors, and volunteers at our conference are required to agree to the following code of conduct. Organisers will enforce this code throughout the event. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.

Be Kind, Considerate and Respectful.

We’re bringing together a diverse group from different experiences and backgrounds to learn about technical agile and software craft. Let’s be good to one another and keep in mind this is a professional conference. We don’t accept bad behavior. We believe in being kind to one another even when we don’t agree. Safety is a prerequisite for learning and our conference is a place for learning.

We remind everyone that coming from different experiences, everyone’s perspectives are welcome. Please be mindful about explaining things to others and ask permission before jumping into giving feedback. Think of things that are offensive to others and avoid them, discuss them in a good spirit as differences of perceptions coming from our different experiences. We provide a space to seek to understand by dialogue. We seek people listening each other, rather than arguing.

If there is any reason to seek support or resolution, the organizers are here to help.

Our conference is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), chosen work role (e.g. tester) or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery are not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organisers.
