ACCU 2019 Autumn Conference is now over and all attention is now on planning for ACCU 2020 conference which will be in the same hotel as ACCU 2019, Bristol Marriott City Centre 2020-03-24 to 2020-03-28.
Historically, ACCU has a lot of C++ and C content, and is proud of that: ACCU is the foremost annual conference for people interested in C++ and C, at least in and around the UK. But it is not just a C++ and C conference, ACCU is about programming in whatever language people are using, with whatever tools and processes people are using: D, Chapel, Java, Kotlin, C#, F#, Groovy, Rust, Go, Python, Ruby, Lisp, to name just a few programming languages about which there have been sessions at ACCU conferences. Git, Mercurial, CMake, Meson, TDD, BDD, allthese tools and techniques have been the focus of sessions at ACCU. The ACCU Conference is looking for sessions that will be interesting to people who create software.
The ACCU conference has:
90 minute sessions, either:
180 minute workshops.
20 minute sessions, 15 minute presentation and 5 minutes questions and answers.
full day (6 hour with breaks) pre-conference workshops
There are also lightning talk sessions, but, as ever, these are organised at the conference.
The ACCU Conference is put on by ACCU (https://accu.org), but is open to anyone who wishes to be there either as a presenter or an attender.
ACCU is a membership organisation for people involved in software creation. The members are interested in programming, programming languages, testing, the tools of developing software, the process of developing software, and all related things. The tag line for the organisation is Professionalism in Programming.
