The Agile 2007 submission deadline is January 26th

August 13 - 17, Washington, DC, Marriott Renaissance Hotel

Deadline: January 26, 2007

Agile software development focuses on delivering business value early and often in the project lifetime with the ability to incorporate emergent requirements. It accentuates the use of rich, informal communication channels and frequent delivery of running, tested systems, while attending to the human aspect of software development.

Agile 2007 is the premier conference for people who are using, or wish to use, agile development principles to improve software development. The agile community will gather at Agile 2007 to share techniques and technologies, research and experience, and innovations for the managerial and technical sides of agile software development.

Agile 2007 seeks proposals for a wide range of topics including: developing, testing, individuals and teams, customers, planning, leadership, learning, innovation, process and process improvement, organizational change, project management, retrospectives, remote collaboration, and offshoring.

We invite submissions covering all aspects of agile methods in the following categories:

  • Tutorials
  • Research Papers
  • Experience Reports
  • Discovery Sessions
  • Educators' Symposium Presentations
  • Hands-on sessions
  • Beginners Track Presentations
  • Talking Heads
  • Research-in-Progress Workshop Presentations
  • Vendor Talks

Detailed calls for proposals for all submission types are available at http://www.agile2007.org. Proposals will be peer-reviewed and a selection will be made to create a highly relevant conference program for beginners to experts in the area of agile methods.

January 26, 2007: Deadline for all submissions (except Research-in-Progress Workshop and Vendor Talks)

Working your way out of the automated GUI testing tarpit
  1. Three ways of writing the same test
  2. A test should deduce its setup path
  3. Convert the suite one failure at a time
  4. You should be able to get to any page in one step
  5. Extract fast tests about single pages
  6. Link checking without clicking on links
  7. Workflow tests remain GUI tests
