Who are we?
What do we do?
How do I join?
Although everyone can attend BCS SPA meetings, those attending more than one or two are encouraged to join BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, at the appropriate grade. You'll find everything you need to know about joining SPA here.
What else is on this site?
Lists of past and planned events are here, including presentation materials and/or notes in many cases, along with newsletters and other useful materials. There used to be a wiki for discussion of related topics, but it was not used much and so the content is now offered on a read-only basis.
There are a number of friendly organisations whose goals are broadly sympathetic to those of SPA, and with whom SPA has had cross-sponsorship or other arrangements in the past.
SPA 2021 Conference
The annual BCS Software Practice Advancement conference brings together experts and practitioners to share the latest thinking in software development. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the 25th annual SPA Conference has been postponed to 13-17 September 2021 and will take place entirely online. Registration is open now!
Please contact us if your organisation might be interested in sponsoring either conference.
