CAS is IBM’s Centre for Advanced Studies; CASCON is an annual gathering of Canadian computer scientists and others that it organizes. Attendance is free, and there are some very interesting workshops this year. Here are a few highlights: Monday Oct 16
- Agile for All: Supporting the Human Element in Agile Development
- AJAX (morning: intro; afternoon: the DOJO toolkit)
- Writing for the Web
- Building a Ruby on Rails Application with DB2 Express
- Leveraging CELL: Proven Techniques, Common Issues and New Applications
- Tools for Managing Crosscutting Concerns
- Social Computing: Best Practices
- Sense and Response Applications
- Third International Symposium on Software Engineering Course Projects
- Women in Technology: New Strategies to Attract a New Generation of Girls
The last two are the ones I most want to attend; it’s a shame they’re scheduled opposite one another.
Hope to see you there!
