Event Details

The annual BCS Software Practice Advancement conference brings together experts and practitioners to share the latest thinking in software development.

Now in its 23rd year, our conference has a tradition of active participation. We encourage conference sessions that bring people together to work and learn and in most cases, many sessions are highly interactive, involving participants and session leaders on an equal footing. This results in a conference like no other and consistently excellent feedback from all those who attend.


Keynote Speakers:

For 2018, we are delighted to announce two of our keynotes: Jon Skeet and Chris O'Dell.

Jon is a Staff Software Engineer at Google, working in London to make Google Cloud Platform rock for C# developers. When he's not doing that, he enjoys stretching the rules of C# to breaking point, making date and time fun (or at least plausible) to work with in .NET, and posting on Stack Overflow


Chris has been developing software with Microsoft technologies for over 12 years. She currently works at Contino helping clients to understand, adopt, and sustain good practices for building and operating software systems. She has led teams delivering highly available Web APIs, distributed systems and cloud based services.
