  • Robert Martin, leading software development expert, author and speaker
  • Tom Preston-Werner, serial enterpreneur and cofounder of GitHub

The line-up of speakers includes, among the others, Robert Martin (Uncle Bob), Tom Gilb, Scott Meyers, Kevlin Henney, Diomidis Spinellis, John Lakos, Lisa Crispin, Angelika Langer and many more

There will be three one-day pre-conference tutorials:

  • The Java Memory Model by Angelika Langer and Klaus Kreft

  • A Day of Deliberate Practice by Kevlin Henney and Jon Jagger

The programme will have something for everybody with a mix of sessions on programming languages, testing, concurrency and distribution, development process, and project management.

We believe this conference is a great event for you to participate in. In fact, the ACCU conference is not only one of the most informative, but also one of the most enjoyable events around.
