Keynotes & Speakers

In addition to our Call for Proposals, each year we invite a few speakers from the international agile community to give an inspiring talk! This is a selection of the speakers invited to this year's conference:

Marcus Hammarberg



Jenni Jepsen



Gojko Adzic




Continuing in the tradition of the last 9 years, this year’s event will be another great day all about Agile Development!

It's about agile

The Agile Tour Vienna is a non-profit event that brings together experts, practioners and anyone else interested in incorporating agile values and principles in their daily work.


We are looking to find the perfect balance between international experts on Agile Development and practitioners from the local community.


The primary conference language is German, but we also welcome talks in English and look forward to exchanging ideas and insights with international participants.

"Think outside the box with motivating speakers, a social crowd and delicious coffee." - Vistor 2015

No early bird, no late bird - only one price this year.

Looking Back

Talks from the Agile Tour Vienna 2018:

Call for Proposals


We invite all agile practitioners to present your talks at the Agile Tour Vienna 2019. In the previous years we had a good mixture of German and English talks, so contributions in both languages are welcome.

The Call for Proposals for the main track is open until Sunday, 30 June 2019.

The Call for Proposals for the "Young Talents" track is open until Saturday, 12 June 2019.

The Review Team will finish the selection of talks for the "Young Talents" track by the middle of June, and for the main track by middle of July. Everyone who submitted a proposal will be informed once the decision is final. Speakers will receive a free ticket for the Agile Tour Vienna 2019. The Agile Tour Vienna is a non-profit community event which aims to keep ticket prices low. Therefore, it is not possible to cover travel expenses or pay a speaking fee.

The conference takes place on Friday, 20 September 2019.

Submit your session here:

Topics to cover

Talks or workshops should cover subjects from one of the following areas:

Successful Technical Practices
Terrific Transformations
Amazing Products
Positive Psychology of Agility
Reach Out - Agile Beyond IT

In particular, we are looking for contributions involving customers and real-life case studies (the more state-of-the-art and experimental, the merrier – people who dare to try should be on stage).


Possible session formats are:

Classical talk
Interactive sessions / workshops
Practitioner report (case studies)
Young Talents (details below)

If your proposed session involves longer exercises or a special format, we can also offer you a 90-minute slot.


Two things are new this year:

The session length is 30 minutes!
The Q&A will happen in a separate 30 minutes slot, one for the morning sessions and one for the afternoon sessions. This gives the audience some time to reflect on your session and the opportunity to ask questions in a more direct way.


Based on last year's positive impressions, we will again have the special “Young Talents” track, which is dedicated to supporting young professionals who hold their first session at a conference.

There is a specific set of requirements for submissions for this track:

You are under 30 years old
It is your first talk at a conference
Your session is a classic talk or practitioner report

Young talents will receive additional support.

Before the conference:

Feedback on your proposal, including the option to get in touch with an expert
Individual coaching to prepare you for your talk
Option to hold a rehearsal in front of a small audience providing you with valuable feedback

After the conference:

Personal feedback from experts

Event Tips

TechTalk holds numerous other events related to Agile development that you may be interested in:

Essential Intent-Based Leadership

19 Sept 2019

Are you tired of having to always have all the answers? Does worrying about whether you will get the deliveries you need sap your energy and brain space? Are you running into roadblock after roadblock with your people and projects? The problem isn’t your leadership, it’s your leadership paradigm. Over and over again, we’ve been told that leaders get people to do things and they try hard to do that. The problem is that approach doesn’t work when it comes to thinking. Instead, what you end up doing is stealing away people’s ownership which leaves you more and more overwhelmed and makes them less and less engaged.


Product Owner Key Skills

26-27 Sept 2019

Have you struggled to split user stories into small but valuable chunks? Do you have problems prioritising stories or getting a commitment from business stakeholders on what they want to achieve? Do you have issues deciding when a story is done or how many other stories you really need to achieve a business objective? Are you managing large amounts of stories that are problematic to estimate, prioritise or plan for? If so, join this interactive workshop and bring your product owners and business sponsors to learn how to get the most out of user stories.


Kanban in Action

14 Oct 2019

Kanban can help you improve your process to more effectively deliver value – no matter what process you are working with now, or how good you are in doing it. Kanban is just a few basic principles and practices – but the implications of them is hugely powerful, and can change not only your team but in the long run help and improve the entire organisation around you. You will learn how to discover, little by little, how to improve your ways of working to something better than you could imagine, through the volutionary approach to process improvements.
