What to experience at Öredev conference?

Since I am in charge of the test track at Öredev conference, I feel I have to promote it somehow. I have to say that I am impressed with the whole line-up during the two days of testing, so I am not going to say any names. But what can I say about the conference without just talking about the test track?

Apart from the test track, the whole conference will offer so much more. I can only refer to the conference last year, and the things I know from behind the scenes, but thats not a pity.

First of all I have a feeling that the Agile and PM tracks will offer very much discussions I can relate to and am interesting in. There is a whole span of leadership seminars in a sweet mix of agile, soft skills and success stories. We have for example Stacia Broderick that has written the book “The software project managers bridge to Agility”, where she bridges the agile concepts with traditional project management.

Then we have the new track with focus on User Experience, where I expect alot of my user level issues to be discussed. For some people the testers should not be involved in talking UE, but for me its an important thing. The tester thinks as a user, acts as the user in projects and can act as a proxy between for example UI designers and developers. More on those thoughts later.

Apart from the seminar sessions, there will be shorter lightning talks to get taste of a variety of sessions without spending whole slots for it. You can of course spend longer sessions and even days on the courses like Rapid Software testing with James Bach, Scala with Jonas Bonér or Scrum master certification with Jens Östergaard and James Coplien. Then we have tutorials, and we have, and we have….and and……

I could write for hours about the program, but still you would get so much more overview in looking at the schedule. And actually I dont think that those things are the most important. The most important thing is the experience and feeling at the conference. There will be alot of space and time to mingle with the speakers over a snack, meet new people and share new ideas with people you wouldnt meet somewhere else. The diversity of speakers and participants that shows up for the conference and the different tracks is what gives Öredev its spirit.

Meet me at Öredev 2009!

      Jepp, är väldigt intressant om man vill hålla sig up to date, och kanske i andra fall tom cutting edge angående vissa ämnen.

      Klart du ska komma!

      Of, course. There are plenty of more tracks to mention as well. I just had to bring up to surface the ones I particularly am interested in.=) Thats why I link to the rest of the programme.
