The workshop is an opportunity to get your feet WET on the crucial topic of how to train talented software developers and managers, a critical issue in today's IT shortage. The workshop is made of two components:
An industry-oriented part (morning), focusing on training for enterprises and chaired by Pete McBreen. See http://www.mcbreen.ab.ca/toolsusa2000/index.html for the detailed presentation of this session and information on presenting a contribution.
A university-oriented part (afternoon), focusing on academic education and chaired by Richard Mitchell and Jim McKim
The workshop will end with a general panel including members from both communities. Participants are encouraged to participate for the whole day to develop the synergies between academic and industrial training. [an error occurred while processing this directive]
