VSSE'23 - Valla Software and System Expo


The program is divided into two separate sessions.

Product Session

Companies present themselves and their product. The scenario is that you are at an exhibition, with lot of people in the audience: customers, competitors, technical journalists, and other software professionals. Each company has 15 minutes, plus 5 minutes for questions. General presentation of the company is limited to 2 minutes. A live demo of the product is a great plus but be sure to have a back-up plan. This part shall be selling your product to the audience. It is a role game, but you must be honest about what you have actually implemented. There are high requirements on presentation technique, be sure to have stand-ins if someone gets sick. No more than two presenters on the "stage" simultaneously.

Experience Session

The companies make a general experience presentation of 10 minutes each plus 5 minutes for questions. No role game at this session, the goal is to share experience. The experience presentation shall cover:

  • Process experience - technical experience
  • Positive and negative experience
  • Experiences from the entire project, not just the last week.
  • Experiences from different roles' perspective.
  • Major take-away from the project.

In preparation for VSSE, use a company meeting to brainstorm about candidate items for the company experience report (hopefully you already have some candidates as output from the debriefing in connection to the individual report). Seek a balance between process and technical experience, between positive and negative, between different roles and between different phases of the project.

If you are interested in more information on experience build-up, consult section 4.3 of https://thoughtsmostlyaboutlearning.files.wordpress.com/2015/12/learning-by-doing-graham-gibbs.pdf

Please, only talk about your project, not about the course. The project staff members are more than happy to receive feed-back about the course, but not during the presentation on VSSE.
