ALM Expo 2009 - Agile and ALM in the New Economy

Online Developer Conference and Exposition Enables Global Participation in a Down Economy

SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwire - October 5, 2009) - CMC Media Inc., publisher of the CM Journal and Agile Journal and host of, the largest social media community for application lifecycle management, is pleased to announce the Application Lifecycle Management Conference and Exposition, ALM Expo 2009. The conference, which takes place October 15th, 2009, is available free of charge to attendees anywhere internet connectivity is available --

ALM Expo is a virtual conference and technology showcase in every sense of the word, with wide-ranging exhibits, compelling conference sessions and keynote panel discussion led by noted author and columnist, Mario Moreira. Companies participating as co-sponsors in this fifth annual expo include: MKS, Urbancode, Perforce Software, Outsystems, Electric Cloud, Collabnet and AccuRev.

The conference program includes six hours of high-interest discussions by industry experts and live audience Q&A. The exhibit hall is packed with virtual exhibit booths where attendees may investigate new products and services, view streaming media demos, view literature and white papers, get in on vendor sponsored drawings and even engage in live discussions with product developers.

For both attendees and exhibitors, ALM Expo eliminates the barriers associated with low participation rates at many recent in-person events. "Escalating concerns over the economy and continually decreasing company budgets has drastically reduced the participation at many events by both vendors and attendees," said Patrick Egan, Founder of CM Crossroads and Agile Journal. "Today's internet and computing technologies, such as streaming media broadcasts and flash-based audience interaction tools, have allowed us to offer informative and valuable content globally. People, who would never be able to participate in such an event, due to either travel or cost constraints, can now watch conference sessions at their leisure and review vendor information without leaving their home or office."

All conference material and exhibits will be available online at no cost to registered attendees beginning October 15th, 2009 and for 6 months following the live event. Registration is available online at
