Of all the conferences I've seen this year, Waterfall 2006 is the one I'm most excited about.
Odds are that you haven't heard of Waterfall. It's a small conference that hopes to resurrect some tried-and-true software development methods:
After years of being disparaged by some in the software development community, the waterfall process is back with a vengeance. You've always known a good waterfall-based process is the right way to develop software projects. Come to the Waterfall 2006 conference and see how a sequential development process can benefit your next project. Learn how slow, deliberate handoffs (with signatures!) between groups can slow the rate of change on any project so that development teams have more time to spend on anticipating user needs through big, upfront design.
Three sessions that really caught my eye right away:
- Nailing Down Requirements: Techniques to Prevent Change
- Project Bureaucracy: How to Generate Millions of Jobs without Gaining any Productivity
And, best of all, I don't have to worry about missing any of them:
Because it's possible you may want to attend all sessions, Waterfall 2006 features no concurrent sessions. All sessions are run sequentially for your enjoyment.
Excellent! This is just the thing for companies that have been acquiring small, fast startups that prefer reckless iterative design and test driven development.
Are you going? It's on the first day of April, so register now.
