Conference 2010

April 14-17, 2010. Barcelo Oxford Hotel, Oxford, UK

Keynote speakers

The registrations are now open. They usually sell very fast; book early to avoid disappointment!

In 2010 we'll have yet another exceptional programme. There will be four keynotes by by Jeff Sutherland, co-inventor of Scrum; James Bach, well known tester and author of "Lessons Learned in Software Testing"; Dan North, Agile coach, software developer and the inventor of Behaviour Driven Development; and Russel Winder, consultant, author, and expert in parallel and distributed systems.

The great line-up of speakers includes among the others Robert Martin (Uncle Bob), Tom Gilb, Andrei Alexandrescu, Walter Bright, Kevlin Henney, Michael Stal , James Coplien, Diomidis Spinellis, John Lakos and many more

As usual, there will be a set of pre-conference tutorials which will include:

  • A Certified Scrum Master Course taught by Jeff Sutherland and Gabrielle Benefield (two days 12 and 13 of April)
  • A one day tutorial on the D programming language by Walter Bright and Andrei Alexandrescu
  • A one day tutorial on testing by James Bach
  • A one day tutorial on Domain Specific Languages by Juha-Pekka Tolvanen

This year the conference will feature – along with the usual tracks on development process, C++, Java, dynamic and functional languages – a special track on testing, with sessions presented by, among the others, James Bach, Lisa Crispin, Tom Gilb, Steve Freeman and Nat Pryce.

We believe this conference is a great event for you to participate in. In fact, the ACCU conference is not only one of the most informative, but also one of the most enjoyable events around.
