AgileByExample will be held in Warsaw, Poland on September 15-16th, 2011 (Thursday and Friday).
The conference venue will be CBA – Centralny Basen Artystyczny
, at M. Konopnickiej 6. It is located in the heart of the city, next to the Sheraton Hotel and near Plac Trzech Krzyży.
The building itself has a unique, industrial feel, offering a fantastic climate for our conference. Built in 1934, it survived the Second World War and housed a swimming pool, which in 2005 was transformed into a space for performances, cultural meetings and events. And yes, you will be listening to the presentations from the bottom of the swimming pool.
