As I admitted in my previous blog post, I was anxious to see how this year’s SEPG conference would turn out in its first year under the CMMI Institute. Well, I’m happy to report that the conference is now over, and it was definitely a success!
We had a booth at the conference, and we were pleased to see a lot of new faces this year (though we were happy to see familiar faces too)!
This year’s conference had great attendance and it was a good mix of seasoned and new attendees. The CMMI Institute clearly put a lot of work into making some improvements over the previous events, including the “lightening talks.” This presentation format of 20 slides with 5 seconds per slide challenged presenters to share their information at a faster pace, but also did a lot to make the presentations more informative and interesting. And, by holding the lightening talks in in the same location as the snacks during breaks, attendance was good as well!
As with any conference, is there room for improvement? Of course! But, I can confidently say that DCG will be back next year – and we hope to see you there!
Until then, if we met at the conference and you’d like to connect or you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment on this post and I will get back to you!
If you’re interested, our photos from the conference are up on our Facebook page!
