FROM THE CONFERENCE CHAIR
I've experienced the good, the bad, and the ugly of
software management practices. It's because of these experiences that I'm so
passionate about software management. Whether you're a new manager or a
seasoned one, this conference with its dedication to great software
management has a lot to offer you. Use it as your forum to share
difficulties, challenges, and solutions, and to see what others have done
with similar challenges. I know you'll learn a lot from this event, and I
look forward to seeing you in Anaheim.
