Sopra Steria's Richard Ford & Peter Woodford speak at FME International User Conference 2017, Vancouver

Wednesday 24 May 2017

to Friday 26 May 2017
Vancouver, Canada

  With over one hundred sessions on a range of topics, the FME International User Conference (FME UC) is three days of learning and networking geared for every user level from ‘newbie’ to ‘ninja’.

Richard Ford leads the Government Sector Innovation Team at Sopra Steria and Peter Woodford is a Senior GIS Developer, specialising in data integration using FME.

Richard and Peter's presentation is titled "Working with FME in an Agile Software Development Lifecycle" and will demonstrate how Sopra Steria implemented FME as a successful contributor to a government digital exemplar within the UK.

It is now live, operating 24/7 in secure hosted environments integrating with a multitude of different applications and databases. It has been configured to complete easy deployments with scripting, continuous integration tools and automation. We have made our ventures into implementing git-flow on our workbenches to allow agile team collaboration and code review whilst maintaining robust and resilient software. 

More information about the conference is available online.
