That's what my schedule looks like for the next two weeks.
I am flying out to Tampa, FL this Sunday to attend the upcoming SEPG 2008 conference between March 17th and 20th. Microsoft is a sponsor/exhibitor at this conference. This conference is a great event for us to talk to attendees about Visual Studio Team System and the MSF for CMMI Process Improvement template that we ship out of the box. I will be joined by my Microsoft colleague Clementino Mendonca and the following partners in our booth:
Personify Design makers of the TeamLook and TeamSpec products that connects MS Outlook and MS Word into Team Foundation Server ,
Object Consulting makers of the Process Mentor TeamGuide for Team Foundation Server and
CEI America providers of process consulting service for CMMI and Visual Studio Team System.
So what is SEPG 2008?
From SEPG 2008 conference web site:
"At the SEPG North America 2008 conference in Tampa, you'll learn the key to software and systems process management - building quality in from the get-go, starting with the processes you use to acquire and develop systems. Throughout the four-day celebration of our 20th anniversary, we'll pay tribute to two decades of strides in the field of process improvement. Plus, we're ushering in a whole new wave of brilliant minds destined to carry on the innovations SEPG North America has launched worldwide."
