As usual we started with the keynote, in this occasion by Brian Fitzgerald (Irish Software Engineering Research Centre). He talked about New directions for Software Development Process. He started with a summary of the evolution of software development process and after that he focused on the impact of Open Source movement and Crowd funding initiatives.
After the keynote I attended to the Lightning talks session where I found some interesting presentations performed by Brazilian folks (Paulo Caroli and Rafaela Fontana).
In the afternoon I attended to the testing track where I saw the most interesting sessions of the day: Llewellyn Falco talking about Getting Existing Code under Tests and Charlie Poole’ demo: From Test to Theories and back again. Excellent speakers and very useful information.
The last session I attended was Pragmatic Architecture for Agile Teams by Janne Sinivirta, it was fine, nothing new for me but it was a useful summary of key points.
Finally at 5 PM it was the main conference closing (even when the next day there were some more workshops). As usual the closing included a retrospective activity, thanks to everyone and the announcement of the next year conference which will be held in Edinburgh.
