In direct response to feedback we received at the CTO Roundtable from our managed ISVs, we are organizing an exclusive, and by invitation only, Software Architecture Workshop (SAW) for our managed partners. The event will be an intense and interactive one day event that is specifically targeted to address topics of interest to the attendees
· Opportunity to Network with other ISVs in the area
· Learn about and share your experiences adopting new Architecture paradigms, such as S+S, Cloud Computing, Patterns, Scalability, TCO, The Future of Software, etc.
· Discuss Solutions, Challenges, and Opportunities for ISVs today
· Discover Microsoft guidance and technologies for next generation product development
About the Event:
This one day conference is limited to 30 attendees due to its interactive nature. We will use the OpenSpace format (http://martinfowler.com/bliki/OpenSpace.html ), which has proven to be very successful for such type of event (SAW in Europe). We are planning to have 2-3 parallel tracks to allow for discussing a range of relevant topics to you.
