Welcome to Play4Agile North America

Hold the dates! Our next event will be September 20-23, 2018 at the Nav Centre in Cornwall, Ontario.

Yes, that’s one more day than we’ve done in the past. We got clear feedback last year that the event was too short so we’ve added an extra day. We’ll be running from Thursday afternoon until Sunday at noon.

Registration will open soon.

What is it?

Play4Agile North America has been running annually since 2015 and is our version of the amazing Play4Agile conference which has been running in Germany for much longer. It’s a weekend full of playful approaches to agile.

On Thursday afternoon, we will have a workshop on a topic to inspire and lead us into the rest of the weekend. In 2017, our workshop was led by Thiagi, who is internationally renowned for his use of games and play in teaching. We’ll post this years topic when it’s been finalized.

Then all day Friday and Saturday and half of Sunday we will run an open space where participants bring the topics they want to discuss. In past years, we’ve had people create games on the fly and others who have brought games they wanted to play-test and others who just wanted to discuss how to use playful techniques.

In the evenings, we tend to play more games and have great conversations. There will be much laughter and learning and a good time to be had by all.
