Valtech Days: presentations in English

I have spent quite some time translating the titles of the presentations at Valtech Days for Jeff McKenna. I thought it would be a good idea to give you the information too!


The conference aims at gathering 300 participants around 4 main themes. Many participants will come for only one of the theme, and (hopefully) will learn about others there too.
The first day is made of talks by presenters from Valtech, partners, and competitors. It ends with a low-key cocktail where everyone is invited.
The second day is mostly an Open Space Technology event, plus a room for the Best Presentations from the 1st day and a room for some of the main partners (IBM, Serena, and Talend).
The 4 themes are:
  • Agile
  • Build Process Automation
  • Architecture (Java, .NET, Web, SOA)
  • e-Business
The presentations are either 45 min- or 15 min-long.
