Software Experts Summit

On 9 June 2010, Siemens AG joined forces with IEEE Software magazine to host the first-ever Software Experts Summit in Munich, Germany, a one-day conference featuring cutting-edge topics presented by internationally renowned software experts. The magazine also sponsored the attendance of three students, Frank Denninger, Markus Luckey, and Stefan Shießl. The conference was aimed at practitioners and managers interested in learning everything from the benefits of using modern software engineering techniques in their own work to realizing change in their own organizations. Click through the videos below to see introductions to the presentations by the speakers themselves; the short biographies below also provide links to their slides, which offer a free peek into an extremely engaging series of talks.
