This year’s P3X: People, Product & Process eXchange will be an online conference hosted on the Hopin platform.

At Skills Matter, we’ve chosen to see the events of the past year as a challenge to make our content and community more inclusive and accessible to all. Beyond the COVID‑19 pandemic, we have a vision of a community where knowledge sharing and skills transfer are not limited by physical barriers.

We are excited about the opportunity to truly welcome the international Agile and software development community to this year’s P3X.

P3X 2021

In the 20 years since Agile methodologies first emerged, conversations in this realm have shifted dramatically. The community's early focus was on using executable specifications to drive design. The overall sentiment has moved naturally towards the importance of collaboration.

P3X 2021 will be an online conference aiming to explore and discover how three core themes — People, Product and Process – lead to greater collaboration, and function together to improve the software development industry.

The P3X Call For Papers has now closed. If you've submitted a talk you should be hearing from our Programming Team very shortly. Thank you for your submissions.

If you've missed the deadline, consider submitting to one of our other Call for Papers below.
