GLSEC 2014 Focuses on Craftsmanship & Teams – Register Today

Article summary

The annual Great Lakes Software Excellence Conference (GLSEC) will be held at The Prince Center at Calvin College on May 5, 2014.

GLSEC is the premier software conference in West Michigan. This year’s keynote speaker is Rich Sheridan, the CEO of Ann Arbor-based Menlo Innovations. He will be kicking the conference off by discussing the business value of joy. Rich is an amazing storyteller, and I am looking forward to his presentation.

Speakers & Tracks

This year’s speaker lineup is amazing, featuring speakers from a diverse set of Midwest companies, including: Priority Health, IDEO, Atomic Object, Open Systems Technologies, Mutually Human, Pillar Technology, Olark, Collective Idea, Gordon Food Service, Duo Security, and Aptera Software.

The talks will fall into two tracks.

Track 1: Craftsmanship and tools

Being a top notch developer requires the right tools, an amazing process and developers that are eager to learn and improve. Talks will focus on the best tools for the job, current processes and staying at the top of your game.

Track 2: Team Integration

Software complexity is rising. The needs of products and organizations require more than only development. Companies are leveraging cross-discipline teams to make world-class products. Attendees can expect experienced reports on how to manage this complexity.

Check out the full program at the GLSEC website.

Register today before GLSEC fills up. As an added bonus, registration comes with a copy of Rich’s new book Joy, Inc. I look forward to seeing you there.
