REDWOOD CITY, Calif. (June 12, 2017) – Accelerance, which connects companies that need software development services with the most qualified outsourcing firms around the globe, is participating in DeveloperWeek NY, June 19-21 at the Brooklyn Expo Center (#DevWeekNY). Accelerance will speak, exhibit and meet with 3,000+ CTOs, executives, software directors, DevOps pros and developers/engineers, to share ideas about supercharging software development through outsourcing. The event, which Accelerance is sponsoring, is the definitive East Coast DevTech conference and exposition and one of the biggest software events nationwide. Visit http://www.developerweek.com/NYC and https://www.accelerance.com.
Accelerance is offering a limited number of complimentary OPEN DEV Passes to DeveloperWeek (a $249 Value), to CTOs, CDOs and product and engineering leaders (must be in a similar role to qualify). To request a pass, visit https://www.accelerance.com/events/developer-week-nyc.
Throughout DeveloperWeek NY, the Accelerance team will invite qualified tech leaders to participate in the Beta release of its new software outsourcing platform, which connects enterprises and SMBs with fully-investigated, world-class software outsourcing companies. Accelerance Founder and CEO Steve Mezak, says, “The Accelerance platform is a brand new way for CTOs to connect with trusted, pre-vetted global software outsourcing companies; thus mitigating risk. The platform allows CTOs to conduct their own search for a software service provider from among the more than 6,000 global software teams that Accelerance fully-investigated. It’s ideal for enterprises that want to outsource with confidence and cut their search for a world-class software team from five months to five days.”
Mezak, who is also the author of Software Without Borders and co-author of Outsource or Else: How a VP of Software Saved His Company, says, “CTOs know all too well that the software developer shortage in the United States is real. And that shortage puts enterprises in jeopardy. If there’s not enough software talent, how will innovation leaders find and hire their software team, to take their enterprise to its next level of growth? The Accelerance platform addresses this issue, by easily connecting enterprises with world-class software providers from around the globe.”To be considered for exclusive, invitation-only access to Accelerance’s Beta platform, visit Accelerance at booth No. 102 at DeveloperWeek NY. Beta users are eligible to win a DJI Spark Drone.
Mezak will also present a DeveloperWeek NY session, “Outsource Well or Else! Managing Outsourced Software Development – Avoiding Missteps & Mistakes,” which will take place at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, June 21 on Expo Stage A.
In the session, Mezak will tell his story of managing a year-long personal journey to develop a two-sided online business platform, using an outsourced software design and development team. As a software expert who knows a lot about outsourcing, Mezak still encountered numerous missteps and mistakes on his own software outsourcing journey. In fact, he selected the “wrong” software provider…twice. In his session, Mezak will share how he handled it and the inevitable “course corrections” along the way – to fix a bad user interface, major security flaws and to adopt a DevOps approach. Attendees will also discover how to select and manage an outsourced development team, including which parts are easier and which are more difficult than managing an internal team. In the end, attendees will walk away from the session with the knowledge of what to look for and what to avoid when outsourcing software development.
This will be Accelerance’s first-time participating in DeveloperWeek NY, a conference and expo that features a 300-person hackathon, 30+ exhibits with the hottest dev technologies and services (Accelerance will be in booth No. 102), and 100+ visionary talks and technical workshops.
