The University of Minnesota's Software Engineering Center and DevJam bring you the 12th annual CodeFreeze symposium. This year's program chairs are David Hussman and Dion Stewart of DevJam and Mike Whalen from the University of Minnesota. The program promises to make for another exciting day.
This year, our theme is software visualization.
We are swimming in a sea of data. Figuring out how to harness it to make faster and better decisions is a huge challenge for businesses and developers. We as humans have innate capacity for understanding and finding patterns in images, and this capacity is largely untapped in our software development, deployment, and business support roles. In this seminar, we will explore how we can visualize large amounts of information to aid in real-time problem solving. Speakers will show how visualizations for architecture and deployment of software at "internet scale" can radically improve the construction and manageability of our systems. Come to Code Freeze 2017 and we will change the way you visualize your work and your world!
We are delighted to have three excellent keynote speakers this year:
Conference sessions will take many forms: presentation, demonstration, and hands-on. We will have breakout sessions from speakers at local Fortune 100 companies describing how they use visualization for better deployment and management of "Internet scale" systems, as well as how visualizations are used to help manage software development.
Registration: Cost for the full day is $100 for the general public and $75 for alumni of the Software Engineering (MSSE) and Computer Science (CS) programs.
Parking: Parking is not included in registration fee. The University Ramp, located on University Avenue next to McNamara Alumni Center, charges $12 normal daily rate. Here is an overview map of various parking options on the East Bank. (the venue is opposite the southwest corner of TCF Bank stadium).
