This year’s SPA conference (Software Practice Advancement) is soon approaching and starts this weekend on Sunday 28th June.
Organised by the British Computer Society, this four day event comprises a packed programme of sessions from a number of forward-thinking practitioners in our industry. The programme also includes evening “diversions” that provide ample opportunity for networking with other attendees.
Now in its 19th year, SPA offers a great opportunity to actively take part in sessions that are all about working on, and learning about, recent advances and ideas in software development.
There’s plenty to get involved in throughout the conference. Topics range from hands-on humanitarian software, to using Agile techniques to boost team productivity, or baby step refactoring, so there’s something for everyone interested in software development.
The team at 7digital is involved with a coding session that explores crafting high quality systems with emergent design, while another session we’re hosting looks at how the next generation is learning about technology and provides a workshop on the tools that young people are currently using in their Computing classes at school.
