Welcome to DFW-ASEE

Happy New Year!

We’re looking forward to the upcoming 27th Annual Association for Software Engineering Excellence Conference on February 18, 2017.

Thanks to everyone who submitted abstracts for presentations for the conference.  It’s lined up to be an amazing conference this year!

Keynote Speaker: Paul Grizzaffi MSCS, CSM, 23 Year Veteran of Testing and Automation,  Principal Automation Architect with Magenic –  and Elected one of this year’s Sticky Minds Top 10!  

Topic: “Responsible Automation”

In our jobs, as in our lives, we have certain responsibilities to which we must attend, things we have a fiduciary duty upon which to execute.  It is no different when addressing test automation.  Too often, however, our automation efforts are an “all or nothing” or “at all cost” endeavor; these are not responsible approaches.  It is incumbent on us to undertake automation initiatives in a responsible, value-based way.  This value can take many forms, but in order to capitalize on that value we must be aware of many factors that affect it.

Speakers and Topics Include:

“Project Survivability by Being Anti-Fragile” by Ryan Meinzer, PMP, CSP, CSM, CSPO, ACP, Agile Coach

“Old Dog, New Tricks: Staying Current in an Ever Changing Development World” by Doug Johnson, Sr. Software Engineer and Consultant

“DevQASecPerfOps – Considerations for Building Out a Robust Continuous Delivery Pipeline”, by Tim Lyon, VP of Quality Assurance and Share Delivery Services at nThrive

Also, Beacon Hill Technologies will be with us for members who might be looking for that new opportunity in 2017.

We’re looking forward to seeing all of you at the conference!

Topic:   The Internet of Things (IoT), Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Communications Presented By: Ed Hightower, Ingenu Consultant Abstract:  

 The Internet of Things (IoT), Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications and the many technologies that enable IoT/M2M are driving the next industrial revolution.  We’ll be able to monitor and control… and analyze objects and conditions that were never technically or economically possible before.

Connectivity technologies like cellular, satellite, wireline, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, mesh, etc. will be joined by powerful Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) technologies that will enable low cost, long range, deep-building penetration and long-battery-life connectivity that will make possible applications that were never practical before. 

This presentation will give a brief history of IoT/M2M, then explain what LPWANs are and why they will be so important in enabling IoT/M2M, and finally who the most likely long-term players will be in LPWAN arena.
