IEEE Software Attends SD West 2006
LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 19 April 2006 — The IEEE Computer Society recently exhibited at SD West in Santa Clara, California to raise awareness for the organization's well-regarded technical magazines.
IEEE Computer Society staff and volunteers will appear at a selection of high-profile software development and computer security conferences over the next two years in furtherance of this awareness initiative. In many cases, the magazine staffs will combine booth appearances with panel sessions of highly regarded volunteer editors addressing topics of interest.
SD West brings together major players in the software development community, making it an ideal candidate for this Computer Society initiative. The curriculum combines the best of traditional and next-generation development in a language-neutral, platform-neutral environment. The conference will include sessions on C++, Java, XML, Web Services, and Security. The list of instructors and speakers includes well-known technology leaders and industry gurus from all corners of the development world.
IEEE Software was offered at a show price of $19, and 50 percent more subscriptions were sold than projected. Attendance was over 1,300. Some 350 attendees entered our contest and 160 attendees filled out the Computer Society questionnaire.
One of the questions was "In 10 words or less, how would you describe IEEE Software” Here a few of their answers:
* On top of the state of the art development
* Good for new technology
* Good help in development
* Guideline for software development
* Very informational
* Good to know helps to stay in touch with the industry
