If you have been looking for a software conference that focuses on the practical technical aspects of the J2EE, XML, Web Services, Agile Methodologies, Open Source and Best Practices, you have found it here with the Great Lakes Software Symposium. At GLSS 2002 you will have the opportunity to choose from 48 different technical sessions, keynote and panel discussion. Because of the unique format of this symposium, you will be afforded the opportunity to interact extensively with the speakers, participate in some excellent technical presentations and come away with practical knowledge that can be applied immediately in your development environment.
The Great Lakes Software Symposium is structured for both the individual developer/consultant and entire software development team from a company to attend. Whether it is the low price point, multiple session tracks or being held over a weekend, GLSS 2002 gives an IT Director the opportunity to send all of his/her development team rather than just the Sr. Architect or Technical Project Manager. The benefit?? It is multi-fold: everyone from the team gets to participate in a technical workshop, ideas flow naturally because all or most of the team members are there to hear presentations, coverage of all the sessions is afforded by 5 or more members of a technical team attending the conference and the list goes on and on... What about from the cost side? Great discounts for teams of developers attending, no air/hotel expenses and equally important no opportunity cost incurred by the developer or company for him/her being gone for an extended period of time.
