It has been two weeks since we announced the details and how to register for the NRG Global test competition. Since that time, we’ve had three teams register. No, I’m not worried, here’s why: At the same time I am organizing this, I am also co-chair of the test and quality track of the Agile
Last week I posted The Killer App, the story of a real software project with a cliff-hanger, pick-a-path ending.
