The conference for participants

SPA2005 continues the 12-year tradition of the world-famous OT conferences by once again bringing together software development practitioners to share their latest thinking and develop new ideas.

Don't expect to spend hours listening to interminable speeches. SPA2005 is for people that want to share experiences, work together to address hot topics, and ask tough questions. Most sessions stress participation and learning - you don't need to know the answers to join in, you just need enthusiasm.

Industry gurus

Read about some of the industry experts who will be attending SPA2005. Don't watch the gurus through a telescope - interact face to face, learn from the horse's mouth and make your own contribution to the debates.
Come prepared to spend four days taking part in an exchange of experiences and ideas that will bring benefit to you and your organisation. Test your ideas with people who have no axe to grind and lots of experience to share.

Whether you're interested in the latest technology, pioneering development practices or innovative project management techniques SPA2005 will have something valuable to offer you.

SPA2005 is the annual conference of the BCS Software Practice Advancement Specialist Group, and is one of the UK's foremost software events.
