The UK’s 2nd dedicated Agile for Embedded Conference to appeal to all – from the ‘Agile curious’ to those with varying experience in Agile for Embedded 

Taking place on 18th March, the day includes a keynote from Edwin Adriaansen, Global Software Director at Dyson who will be sharing ‘The top 10 things you shouldn’t do’. The rest of the Programme includes a mix of user experiences and technical sessions, presented by: Niall Cooling, CEO, Feabhas, Dr Glenn Coates, Software in Real Time Ltd, Dr Roderick Chapman, Director, Protean Code Limited, Visiting Professor, University of York, Steve Dwyer, Principal Consultant & Head of Software Engineering, ITDev, and Dr James Hui, Engineering Specialist, Wind River.

In addition to the Conference Programme, there will be additional optional talks during the lunchtime break.  These shorter ‘Lunch and Learn’ sessions will be hosted by QA Systems and Hitex, who will be sharing their expertise in the Agile space.

Jo Cooling, Director at Feabhas says “We want everyone to get as much as they can from the day. As we had such a good response to our call for papers, we looked for an innovative way to be able to include as many talks as possible, whilst maintaining a balanced Programme. As a result, we are offering additional talks that delegates can choose to attend during the lunch break. This means that delegates can now ‘Lunch and Learn’, attend the exhibition and network, in addition to attending the main Agile for Embedded conference sessions.

And for those who are new to Agile for Embedded and want an initial understanding of Agile software development, we are offering a ‘Springboard into Agile for Embedded’ on 17th March, also at Green Park. 

This one-day classroom-based event is an excellent pre-cursor to the Conference and will be run by Niall Cooling. The topics covered include: 

•    understanding the principles of Agile Software Development
•    appreciating Agile for Embedded is different from Agile for non-Embedded
•    identifying the tools required to support Agile Software Development
•    considering how Agile can be applied to software for High Integrity Systems development
•    challenges and pitfalls of Agile

Attendees should have a good understanding of software development, including aspects such as design, coding and test.”
