Don’t miss out on networking with top software engineering thought leaders at the May 17 Software Experts Summit at the Computer History Museum in the heart of the Silicon Valley.
In one day, come away with new insights and information into the best means of "Managing the Pace of Innovation." Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society, IEEE Software magazine, and AMD, the high-level, one-day summit will provide opportunities for networking with software engineering thought leaders who will share their experiences and proven techniques for adapting to the relentless pace of business innovation.
The summit will feature presentations by:
- Gary McGraw, CTO of the Washington, DC-based software security firm Cigital Inc. (Software Security and the Building Security in Maturity Model);
- Grady Booch, one of the original authors of the Unified Modeling Language ("Everything You Know is Wrong!");
- Jan Bosch, vice president of engineering process at Intuit, a professor of software engineering at the University of Groningen, and former head of Nokia Research Center's Software and Application Technologies Lab (How Speed Drives Innovation);
- Linda Rising, independent consultant and presenter on patterns, agile development, and the change process (When Decisions Went Well or Not--and Why);
- Pekka Abrahamsson, computer science professor at Free University of Bozen-Bolzano and coordinator of the Cloud Software research program (Want to Shape Future Markets? Don't Ask the Customer!);
- Grigori Melnik, a senior program manager in the Patterns & Practices Group at Microsoft (Making Distributed Agile Work); and
- Rebecca Wirfs, author and inventor of Responsibility-Driven Design (Managing Project Risk and Incremental Design Innovation).
- Forrest Shull, editor in chief of IEEE Software and originator of the magazine's Voice of Evidence column, will serve as moderator. Shull is a senior scientist at the Fraunhofer Center for Experimental Software Engineering in Maryland, where he leads the Measurement and Knowledge Management Division.
With increasing globalization, new technologies, the economic downturn and fast-changing regulations, the competitive landscape in the software engineering field is constantly changing, even for industries that once seemed stable.
To obtain the tools you need to keep your software engineering knowledge sharp in this ever-changing climate, register for the Software Experts Summit at http://www.computer.org/ses11. Registration is $90. Onsite registration will be limited.
Attending the Software Experts Summit will help technology professionals gain knowledge of engaging and cutting-edge software engineering topics, such as:
- software security and the BSIMM initiative
- innovation through composition-oriented engineering
- software decisions under time pressures
- software functionality fundamentals and best-practices, and
- distributed agile development teams.
