Tanya Raybourn (Pixelcharmer) points to Waterfall2006 in her Field Notes blog:

This one, Waterfall 2006, sounds unmissable.

After years of being disparaged by some in the software development community, the waterfall process is back with a vengeance. You’ve always known a good waterfall-based process is the right way to develop software projects. Come to the Waterfall 2006 conference and see how a sequential development process can benefit your next project. Learn how slow, deliberate handoffs (with signatures!) between groups can slow the rate of change on any project so that development teams have more time to spend on anticipating user needs through big, upfront design.

Seems like there are some great sessions planned:

  • Very Large Projects: How to Go So Slow No One Knows You’ll Never Deliver
  • User Interaction: It Was Hard to Build, It Should Be Hard to Use
  • User Stories and Other Lies Users Tell Us

As you would expect, there’s no concurrent sessions.

Be sure to check out the description of the keynote: Put Testing Where it Belongs – At the End.
