Money Bag


Create a Build Party


Tue 14 Nov afternoon to Thur 16 Nov night

*your travel & accommodation must be included in this budget

What should be part of the party?


Lectures of

Team Building, Scrum, Coding, Pair Programming and Pair Testing, eXtreme Manufacturing and Refactoring.


Hands-on work with

Tools like Hammer & Jigsaw, do some modelling by using materials like plywood or legos, have VR (virtual reality) Technologies & Glases involved, use 3D-Printing, connect it with the IoT (Internet of Things), and round it up with Drones, Robots or remote controlled vehicles.


All this should lead to a Grand Finale

The character of the Grand Finale depends on your build party idea. The Grand Finale could be a team challenge, where each team presents their results or where the teams meet for a contest, for example a race. In case the build party becomes a single project with the goal to build one big thing, the grand finale could be a presentation of the results, for example showcase a huge flying unicorn and tell the spectators about the challenges of building it and which agile methods helped you to achieve the goals.

Since 2014, the Agile Testing Days are hosting Build Partys as break out sessions where attendees can learn about the principles of SCRUM, Agile Teaming, eXtreme Manufacturing and many more!

In 2016 we did a Build Party CFP for the 1st time and published the results in a community vote. We received crazy ideas, like building a real Life Pac-Man or a big sized Ginger Bread House. The community voted very actively and finally decided for the Hovercraft Racers Build Party, which was hosted by Ordina.
