A NEW Conference on App Trends: Agile, DevOps, Big Data, and So Much More

John K. Waters leads the charge on App Dev Trends 2016 as part of Live! 360 this December. Waters is immersed in all things high-tech and is the editor-at-large for App Dev Trends is launching as the in-person extension of the magazine’s audience, bringing the trending topics featured daily to life later this year in Orlando. Why should you attend? John explains here:

What do Agile development practices, containerization, continuous integration, cloud computing, enterprise mobility, DevOps, and Big Data have in common? They’re all top-of-mind industry trends that are creating new challenges right now for enterprise software professionals.

That’s the focus of App Dev Trends 2016, an exciting new addition to the enormously popular Live! 360 conference, scheduled for December 5-9 at the Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal in Orlando, Florida. Our program adds another dimension to the larger event by focusing on the challenges facing the makers and maintainers of the purpose-designed software that drives organizations in virtually every industry in the world—in other words, enterprise software professionals.

We’ve assembled a powerful agenda for this conference, with sessions and workshops on a range of topics the readers of Application Development Trends have told us are most important to them. There’s also a first for this event: sessions on Java and JVM tools and techniques.

The sessions and workshops will be led by industry experts, analysts, and practitioners with deep knowledge and real-world experience. You’ll see examples and strategies, acquire skills, ask questions, get answers, and rub elbows with peers and pros facing the same challenges you face. And you’ll come away with insights and advice on trends that are already impacting your work and are certain to affect your future.

This is our first event, and I’m expecting to welcome a range of attendees, from down-in-the-trenches developers to team leaders and decision makers at just about every level.

Looking forward to seeing you at Live! 360 and App Dev Trends 2016!
