How do I get to the conference venue?
Please check out our “How to get there” information available here: agiletestingdays.com/venue.
Will there be free WiFi?
Yes, there will be free WiFi in the hotel.
Are all talks/sessions in English?
Yes, even 90% of all hallway conversations are in English.
Do I need a laptop?
Not in general, but some workshops may require a laptop or similar. If that is the case, you will find an indication within the online program. Please check the sessions you are interested in if these require any devices. For note taking there will be pens and paper available.
Will slides be available after the conference?
The speakers are able to upload their presentations already during the conference. After the conference, there will be a reminder again to all speakers to provide their presentations. All conference attendees will be able to download the available presentations from the online program. Please note that not all speakers can or want to share their slides. Some will officially share a link to their slides on twitter or facebook.
Can I visit all talks and workshops as I want, or do I need to pre-register/sign-up for each session?
There is no pre-registration for any of the conference sessions. We also won’t know in advance which sessions will draw the most attention and which won’t. To avoid disappointment, make sure you visit the applicable room of your preferred session as early as possible. Once the room is full, no further people are allowed due to security reasons. We recommended that you put together your desired sessions in advance and make sure you know your way to it. Also, plan for some breaks, the input will be intense!
Are all social evening activities included in the ticket fee/price?
Yes, they are and we highly recommend to join us for them. The evening events are a great opportunity to network and to make new contacts and friends while having fun.
When I book the full conference ticket, do I need to check in every morning?
You only need to check in with us on the first day of your attendance. However, you will need to wear your badges at all days and times.
Costume/MIATPP Award Night - is it necessary to wear a costume?
Of course not, but it is way more fun if many people dress up. It is always a great evening and people enjoy it a lot. Plus, the best costumes get awarded free tickets for next year’s edition.
Staffed registration and information table
The registration desk will remain open throughout the day. This is the best point of contact for speaking with an AgileTD staff member who can help you with questions, resolve problems, and take feedback. This is the best place to report a Code of Conduct violation on the day, as it can be immediately escalated to the designated code of conduct staff member. At least one of these staff members will be first aid trained and can provide assistance for any non-emergency medical issues.
In the event of an emergency fire, ambulance or police, dial 112 and follow instruction from the phone operator.
What does it mean that the event is climate neutral?
To compensate the CO2 emissions resulting from our 6-day event, we have 695 trees planted in Yucatan/Mexico. Those are equivalent to the emissions resulting from: the food/drinks including preparations/servings, the hotel nights, heat, power and printed materials. Arrival to and departure from the event is not included. If you are interested in getting your travels compensated, feel free to reach out to www.plant-for-the-planet.org.
