Software Development

For all the fans of the Waterfall software development methodology, here is a conference for you - be sure to check out the following:
  1. "Working Harder, Not Smarter",
  2. "Put Testing Where It Belongs--At the End" (keynote speech),
  3. and the "Register Now" page.

Actually, according to the wikipedia link above the inventor of the method (W. W. Royce) criticised it on the second page as being "is risky and invites failure" (mainly because of the effects of cumulative delays). If you have any experience with large company software development projects you should know exactly where this is coming from...

Changing subject slightly, here is an interesting home page - it belongs to Bjarne Stroustrup, the creator of C++ (he has quite a lot of very sharp insights).
