FP Days 2014 is organised by Software Acumen Limited, a small team of specialist software events organisers, operating in Cambridge since 2004.
We also organise free and paid-for local evening events and support other events in the East of England under the Software East banner.
Software East has hosted a huge range of speakers from intimate sessions for niche software professionals to much larger talks by notable speakers including Scott Guthrie (@scottgu) of Microsoft and Adrian Cockcroft of Netflix, and Dr Hermann Hauser (@HermannHauser).
Our aim is to provide Great events rather than Big events. We want our participants to enjoy a learning experience that is second to none.
We pride ourselves on being user focussed, designing then refining all our events to ensure our participants want to come back every year.
While quality and value for money are key imperatives, it’s important to us to ensure everyone involved with a Software Acumen event feels they have the opportunity to achieve their goals in joining our conferences.
Participants remember unique and meaningful interactions, whether it’s a great conversation over a tasty coffee, a dinner with fellow participants, or something completely different.
We are always happy to help you create a unique package that will help you achieve your specific sponsorship goals.
If you are interested in sponsoring the event by creating a unique package, or by choosing an off-the-shelf sponsorship package, please contact us for further details.
