New for 2010


In our continuing effort to ensure that quality, innovation, and an exciting program of professional development and networking are the trademarks of every SEPG attendee's experience, this year we are introducing a new way to help you get the most from your participation. Personas, fictitious and fun characters created to represent some of the different user types within our SEPG conference community, will assist you in finding the sessions that benefit you the most. Are you a CIO, a high-maturity implementer, an in-house process subject matter expert, or an Agile fan? These are just a few of the personas helping you find your way to the best content for you! Look for the personas in the program guide at the conference.

Professional Development Workshops

In addition to our excellent technical sessions, we've planned Professional Development Workshops to round out your career development. These half-day workshops are dedicated to career development topics that are important to everyone in our field. The workshops are scheduled to begin Thursday afternoon and are worth sticking around for! They include
