LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 14 February 2014 -- Registration for the 10th annual SEI Architecture Technology User Network (SATURN) Conference 2014 is now open. SATURN 2014 will be held 5-9 May at the Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront Hotel in Portland, Oregon. SATURN is designed for practitioners who are responsible for producing robust software architectures as well as for those who view software architecture as a critical element in the achievement of their business or organizational missions.

SATURN 2014 offers an exciting and intellectually stimulating program that will include keynote presentations by

  • Joe Justice of Scrum Inc., and Team Wikispeed, which built a 100+ mpg car in less than three months for the X-Prize using Agile, Lean, and Scrum: (see http://tedxtalks.ted.com/video/TEDxRainier-Joe-Justice-WikiSpe)
  • Jerome Pesenti, Vice President of Watson Core Technology at IBM and former co-founder of Vivisimo, the innovate search solutions company
  • Bill Opdyke, Architecture Lead (Corporate Internet Group) at J.P. Morgan Chase, who is best known for having done the first in-depth study of code refactoring as a software engineering technique

Also participating in SATURN this year will be Diana Larsen (http://futureworksconsulting.com), who will facilitate an Open Space event that will run concurrently with the conference and provide a valuable forum for networking and sharing of ideas and solutions.

In addition to the keynote and Open Space sessions, the SATURN 2014 Conference includes an extensive program of technical sessions on the themes of Technology, Methods and Tools, and Leadership and Business. SATURN 2014 will also offer practical tutorials, one two-day SEI course, and two one-day SEI courses. The conference provides attendees with the opportunity to network with international industry leaders in software architecture.
