Last week I spoke on our experiences with Application Lifecycle Management at a Microsoft Partner event (Centare) at the Harley Davidson Museum in Milwaukee. It was an early morning event, starting at 7:30, which was a challenge for me to get to – but I enjoy ALM so much I made the trip from Chicago.


My talk was an expanded and more implementation specific version of my article that published in DDJ this summer. I try to make it fun – not everyone finds managing application lifecycles exciting. In the end I hope the attendees left with a better understanding of what managing an applications life from idea to maintenance means for an organization – and how it doesn’t have to be a yawner.
