Agile Carnival at SXSW – From Digital Experience to Caipirinhas

CI&T is bringing Brazil to Austin! On Tuesday, March 14, CI&T is combining the two best parts of SXSW – panels and parties – to create a Carnival-themed interactive lounge and a series of talks on the topics we are most passionate about – from DevOps and design sprints to customer experience and caipirinhas.

For Brazilians, Carnival is a team effort. Since CI&T is in the business of transforming any company into a digital enterprise, we like to describe it as “Agile in action.”

At Agile Carnival at SXSW, hear from the brightest minds in innovation, marketing and design, to learn about best practices and case studies in driving digital transformation. We’ll take a closer look at the applications of Lean and Agile methodology, advantages of a design-focused culture, reshaping customer experiences and getting to the finish line faster with design sprints.

Whether you’re a marketer, designer, programmer or product developer, please stop by for a few drinks, a quick samba and lots of ideas! Here’s a rundown of activities:

Agile Carnival Lounge

Courtyard Marriott, Brazos Room (2nd Floor)

Our Carnival-themed interactive lounge and demo lab is the perfect spot to connect with attendees and recharge with everything Brazilian from fresh fruit acai bowls, to Samba music and cheeky Caipirinhas.
