On Thursday, October 9th, 2014, at Oakland University, GL-SPIN and our Gold Sponsor, Broadsword, will host “A Software World Without C” presented by Mr. Chandran Palanisamy - Senior Staff Software Engineer at Continental Engineering Services, in Auburn Hills, Michigan.


Synopsis of the Presentation:

When it comes to dealing with ever increasing complexity and the need for reduced time to market, every software process in existence, including the Agile / Scrum is showing strains.

While a lot of thought of was put into development of each Software process, the underlying elements such as requirements, programming complexity has not changed much.

The discussion that will take place, is is an attempt to present an alternate process with simplified elements; not only eliminating C from the equation, but providing a conceptual view of Software development elements and processes for the far future.
