Friday 11 January 2008 accu2008 Conference

accu2008
The schedule for accu2008 has been published and registration is now open. As ever, it's a pretty fantastic line-up including process-giant Tom Gilb, Erlang inventor Joe Armstrong, and Haskell big-brain Simon Peyton Jones.

If you have even the remotest care about your software development, you should consider going. It's not just C++ or Java or what some supplier thinks you should be interested in this week, it's a solid, deep, programme on software development, process, project management, and so on. Ask your boss if he'll pay. He really should. If you book before the end of January it's £450 for ACCU members, or £550 for non-members. (Hint: It's ok to join then book.) For a four day conference, that's an utter bargain. (Compare with, say, DevWeek which charges over a £1000 for three days and has a timetable dominated by Microsoft staff talking about as-yet-unreleased Microsoft tools.)

But you would say that, Jez, you're the ACCU Chair ...

Well, yes I am the Chair. But I joined in running ACCU because things like the conference were so good, I don't say they're good because I'm Chair.
