SANS - Survey on application security programs

Here’s a long range heads-up on a couple of conferences that should tickle the interest of many developers.

First up is itself a `first’, though give the subject – Software Assurance – it is quite likely to be the first of many. This first Software Assurance Workshop is being promoted by the Object Management Group and will be held in Washington DC, USA, between March 5 – 7. The object is to cover such areas as the technologies, methodologies, tools and standards that go to achieve software assurance, through discussion of tools and technologies, plus case studies demonstrating how the process can work.

More information can be obtained here.

A week later – March 12 to 16 at London’s Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre - there will be QCon, a conference aimed at the enterprise software development community, and put together by InfoQ and the JAOO Conference. Tracks at the conference will cover such areas as .NET Enterprise Development, Agile Foundations, AJAX and browser-based applications, and Architecture in the Context of Quality Attributes. Speakers will include Martin Fowler, Jeff Sutherland, Erik Meijer (creator of LINQ), Werner Vogels of Amazon, and Rod Johnson (creator of Spring), among others.
