The 1DevDay Detroit Conference is coming up soon and promises to be an exciting, educational, and fun day of learning about, sharing, and exploring software and software product development techniques.
The lineup includes both local and national speakers giving talks on a wide variety of topics. Some of the more interesting (in my opinion) sessions to be presented are Diane Marsh’s two part presentation on Scala koans, David Giard’s discussion of Edward Tufte’s Effective Data Visualization techniques, and Nathan Hughes’ intriguing-sounding talk that describes using improvisation techniques to help overcome development challenges.
Of course, I’d be remiss if I didn’t also mention my own hands-on presentation on the use of burn charts to manage projects. It will be the first time I have given this talk – one that was developed by Carl Erickson and Mike Marsiglia and delivered at various venues by them and other Atoms.
There’s still time to register, and the price ($50+fees) is very reasonable, so come on out and see us on November 5th. I’m looking forward to giving my talk, and meeting many new people in Detroit’s resurgent IT business environment.
