Herb's Keynote

The original title and blurb for Herb’s keynote closing ACCU 2017 left room for one of many actual presentations. Herb has now sent in the choice he has made. So the printed materials now have the wrong title and blurb. The selected title is:

which is a link through to the blurb on the website. The website and the Web application have the correct title and blurb even if the printed materials have been overtaken by events.

Some New Sponsors: Riverblade, SNSystems, and Steema

Three new sponsors of ACCU 2017 to note.

The first is Riverblade, a company deeply committed to making software developers' lives better with good development tools. In fact Riverblade signed up as a sponsor a while back, but due to failure on the part of the wetware running this website, their logo was not added to the list of sponsors, and blog entry not posted. This is particularly bad as Riverblade have been a staunch supporter of ACCU conferences for many years. I hope the good folk at Riverblade accept the wetware’s apologies for this error.

The first of our actually newly signed up sponsors is SNSystems. It is great to have this games-oriented company on board. Games may be fun (mostly), but software that implements the games, and perhaps more importantly, the software that implements the tools and frameworks programmers used to write the games software are important bits of software. ACCU members like good software.

Our second new sponsor is Steema. Anyone involved with data is aware that visualisation of that data is a critical part of finding information from that data. Steema contribute to visualisation by making charting software. Expect prizes from them at ACCU 2017.
