Scandinavian Developer Conference attracts a diverse range of software professionals, and aims to put together a programme that will interest, inspire and be useful to all of them. To this end Iptor, (the main conference organizer), has delegated responsibility for the detailed programme to an independent committee which takes decisions on conference speakers and topics. Each committee member has long experience working with software development, and is an expert in their particular area. Their brief is to put together a programme that draws together the best from the international world of software development to us here in Göteborg, full of inspiration, relevant knowledge, and advice on what's new and what works.
