Workshops

The orientation is meant to provide an overview of ACM for newly elected SIG leaders. It will start with a continental breakfast followed by a general session from 9:00 am – 10:00 am. Participants will then be placed into small groups to attend workshops on finance, IS publications, Membership & Marketing. The workshops are done in “round-robin” fashion with the speakers moving from session to session. Following the last session at 2:45 which will be followed by a SIG/Conference Fair where participants will have appointments at a variety of stations to discuss the latest information on SIG Services and conference activity. The “Fair” is a new format we are experimenting with in order to personalize the sessions based on the specific needs of the participants.

ACM Case Studies

Written by leading domain experts for software engineers, ACM Case Studies provide an in-depth look at how software teams overcome specific challenges by implementing new technologies, adopting new practices, or a combination of both. Often through first-hand accounts, these pieces explore what the challenges were, the tools and techniques that were used to combat them, and the solution that was achieved.

The DevOps Phenomenon

ACM Queue’s “Research for Practice” consistently serves up expert-curated guides to the best of computing research, and relates these breakthroughs to the challenges that software engineers face every day. This installment of RfP is by Anna Wiedemann, Nicole Forsgren, Manuel Wiesche, Heiko Gewald, and Helmut Krcmar. Titled “The DevOps Phenomenon,” this RfP gives an overview of stories from across the industry about software organizations overcoming the early hurdles of adopting DevOps practices, and coming out on the other side with tighter integration between their software and operations teams, faster delivery times for new software features, and achieving a higher level of stability.
