Record breaking: With over 200 submissions, this year’s “call for speakers” was the largest ever crop of topic suggestions for xChange 2011, the annual Serena customer conference to be held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada from September 19-21.
Over the last six weeks the product teams have been working through the submissions and their task has been very difficult. So many excellent presentations and so few speaking slots. Indeed we have actually opened up additional space to accommodate more of the ideas.
This week the top 80 suggestions went online and you can now review them on the xChange web site. Here are the links to the individual tracks:
Record breaking: Over 22 of the 83 sessions are customer presentations, again another Serena xChange record.
This year the content is more intense and in-depth than ever with customer, partner and Serena experts leading critical sessions that address some of the most advanced demand and requirements management, software development, release management, service management and process automation issues in the world today.
Keep an eye on the blog for more exciting announcements in the next week.
See you in Vegas in September!
