What People Say About AMECSE

Testimonials from AMECSE Speakers

I am very glad that I had the opportunity to attend AMECSE 2016. It gave me the opportunity to meet a broad variety of people who are interested in both practicing and teaching about Software Development. They asked very thought-provoking questions and this led to fruitful discussions. Some of the discussions continued after I returned home to Canada. The talks and workshops were interesting and helpful. They discussed basic issues and avoided the trap of degenerating to a discussion of short-lived technology. I would recommend the AMECSE series to anyone who has the opportunity to attend.

David Parans, Ph.D., P.Eng.(Ontario); 
Dr.h.c.: ETH Zürich, Louvain, Lugano ,TU Wien

My expectations form AMECSE 2014 is to learn, interact and network with people. I expect in further AMECSE’s to continuously meet people with whom i can build business partnerships and do investments.

Clement Uwajeneza, Aficta Board Member, Founder & Managing Director, AxIS, Rwanda

I think AMECSE 2014 was very successful. This is the first of a series of conferences which I personally hope will continue and also extend lots of technologies to the African continent.

Stefan Schuster, Project Director, TECNALIA Research & Innovation,

I was very surprised and very happy to see this kind of events happen in this part of the world. I hope to encourage students and research to look more into open data and its applications. I hope this conference is the first but not the last.
