The conference is a collaboration between the team behind the UX Oxford Meetup group, and Software Acumen Limited, a small team of specialist software events organisers operating in Cambridge since 2004.
Software Acumen also organise free and paid-for local evening events and support other events in the East of England under the Software East banner.
Software East has hosted a huge range of speakers from intimate sessions for niche software professionals to much larger talks by notable speakers including Scott Guthrie (@scottgu) of Microsoft and Adrian Cockcroft of Netflix, and Dr Hermann Hauser (@HermannHauser).
Our aim is to provide Great events rather than Big events. We want our participants to enjoy a learning experience that is second to none.
We pride ourselves on being user focussed, designing then refining all our events to ensure our participants want to come back every year.
While quality and value for money are key imperatives, it’s important to us to ensure everyone involved with a Software Acumen event feels they have the opportunity to achieve their goals in joining our conferences.
Furiously trying to distil the good stuff I took away from #agilemanc to play back to the business before it all evaporates like a dream...— Mic Streeter (@sleeperservice) May 11, 2015
