"Your Development & Testing Processes Are Defective," presented by Mary Poppendieck, explains how lean companies have learned how wasteful defects and queues can be and attack them with a zero tolerance policy that creates outstanding levels of quality, speed, and low cost -- all at the same time. Her book "Lean Software Development: An Agile Toolkit" was awarded the Software Development Productivity Award.

Jon Bach presents "Inside the Master's Mind: Describing the Tester's Art." Jon Bach describes the new language of exploratory testing and how it may revolutionize the way it is perceived. He is most known for being co-inventor (with brother James) of Session-Based Test Management (a way to manage and measure exploratory testing) and most recently the developer of Open-Book testing.

"Testing: The Big Picture" presented by Brian Bryson, covers the critical success factors for organizations challenged with the development and deployment of quality software applications. He takes strategies and lessons from within and beyond the QA industry to provide you with a new perspective on addressing the challenges of quality assurance. At IBM Rational, Brian Bryson is a member of the technical marketing team that plans and delivers IBM Rational's software quality toolset.

Herbert Thompson takes you on an illustrated tour of the top twelve security vulnerabilities in software and shows you how to find these flaws efficiently. Each vulnerability is brought to life through a live exploit followed by a look at the testing technique that would have exposed the bug in The Software Vulnerability Guide: Uncut and Uncensored. Herbert is co-author of "How to Break Software Security" and "The Software Vulnerability Guide" and is the author of numerous papers on software security and testing.

"Testing the Flow of Value in Software Development," presented by Sam Guckenheimer, contrasts the use of metrics to current practices, which often only emphasize effort and bug counts. In these examples, Sam uses Microsoft Visual Studio Team System (VSTS) to collect and report measurements and to suggest corrective actions. Sam Guckenheimer is the Group Product Planner for Microsoft Visual Studio Team System and Microsoft Solutions Framework. He is responsible for the end-to-end external design of the next releases of these products.

Erik van Veenendaal discusses a real-world method for applying structured risk-based testing applicable in most software projects. He describes how risk identification and analysis can be carried out in close cooperation with stakeholders in "The Imperative of Non-Functional System Testing." Erik van Veenendaal Founder of Improve Quality Services BV, has been working as a practitioner and manager in the IT industry since 1987.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully ...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
