We're excited to share that next week we'll be attending the 10th annual International Software Measurement & Analysis conference (ISMA), “Creating Value from Measurement."
As an industry leader in software analytics and software sizing, ISMA is a conference we look forward to attending every year. The conference, put on by the International Function Point Users Group (IFPUG), provides a forum to discuss the most recent advances in planning and sustaining measurement programs, from both practical and theoretical perspectives.
ISMA runs for four days - the conference portion of the event is held on the the 4th day. The first three days include workshops and a Certified SNAP Practitioner (CSP) exam.
We will host a workshop, "Applying Function Points to Emerging Business Technologies," on April 27-28th. This workshop will apply the latest IFPUG counting practices and rules in advanced situations and to a variety of technologies and environments, including Agile software development. This class will feature intensive instruction, lively conversation and hands-on practical application.
So there you have it! We'll have representatives at the conference all week. We look forward to learning more about how others are using function points and sharing our recent discoveries as well.
More information on the conference is available here. See you in Charlotte!
