The ACCU Conference is the annual conference of the ACCU membership club, but open to any and all who wish to attend. The ACCU Conference has a history founded in studying and evolving C and C++ and many of its members continue to have active roles in the C and C++ standards bodies. The ACCU Conference has always had C and C++ at its core, but has, from the outset, always been about programming languages, programming tools, techniques, and programming processes. The ACCU Conference is a conference by programmers for programmers about programming. Many ACCU delegates, and ACCU members are software developers and programmers working as employees in organisations, many are consultants and contractors, all are in the vanguard of thinking about programming, software development, and how to do it better. The ACCU conference is rightly proud of the ACCU banner “professionalism in programming”. Along with its C and C++ core content, the ACCU Conference always has sessions relating to languages such as C#, D, F#, Go, Haskell, Java, Kotlin, Lisp, Python, Ruby, Rust, and Swift. Also, there are always sessions on TDD, BDD, and how to do programming right. It isn’t just about the programming languages; it is also about the tools and techniques of programming.
The core of the ACCU Conference is about developers who want to share their experience in the form of presentation and interactive workshops with other developers. We plan currently to have a hybrid conference in 2023. That means that there will be an onsite event in Bristol and the majority of sessions will be streamed. We continue to offer this format because we understand that not everybody is able to travel.
The ACCU Conference is about interaction as much as it is about presentation: conferences are for conferring. Conference attendees interact with each other and with the exhibitors and sponsors. The attendees want to hear about the latest and greatest things from each other and from organisations with something to offer. ACCU attendees form opinions and spread them around. The term “thought leader” remains one used by some organisations to essentially brag about how they try to influence other people’s opinions. ACCU members absorb data and information, make up their own minds, and then actually influence others in a professional way, they are the real thought leaders of software development: being an exhibitor or sponsor of ACCU Conference is the way of interacting with the people who will influence decision making.
We look forward to welcoming you at ACCU 2023!
