SD East 2002 - Boston's Only Independent, Multi Language Software Development Event

Sep 24, 2002

CMP Media's Software Development Events Group today announced the annual Software Development Conference & Expo East (SD East) to be held November 18 - 22 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston.

Based on overwhelming success last year, SD East is returning to Boston, providing education in multi-platform languages, web services, and project & process management. This year SD East will be co-located with the Embedded Systems Conference, giving attendees the unique opportunity to visit two expo floors featuring over 175 of the industry's leading companies.

SD East is pleased to present world-class speakers, authors and visionaries from the software industry. Java programming language creator, James Gosling, will be the featured keynote and the opening keynote speaker will be Gregor Kiczales, one of the developers of AspectJ, the next big thing in aspect-oriented programming. Other notable instructors include C++ guru, Scott Meyers, eXtreme programmer, Robert Martin and .NET expert, Richard Hale Shaw.

With the advent of single technology shows, which only discuss Java, XML and now Web Services, SD is proud to be the only event where development teams can learn how technologies work together. "Driven by the needs of the software development community, SD's content continues to evolve to meet the requirements of entire development teams," says Nicole Garbolino, SD Conference Manager. "It is now more important than ever to offer developers the full spectrum of methods and technologies so they can determine the right techniques to meet their needs." The conference provides the best of the traditional and next generation development, focused on core technology tracks including .NET, C++, XML, Java, and Modeling, Design & Quality. Additionally, SD will continue to provide a full Web Services and People, Process & Project Management curriculum.

To round out the week, many learning and networking opportunities are scheduled outside of the classroom, including Birds-of-a-Feather Gatherings, Design Patterns Clinics, the Expo's Opening Reception, exhibitor sponsored cocktail hours and technical sessions.

The SD East Expo floor highlights the latest technologies, services and tools from today's most innovative companies.
