The Mobile Track presentation sessions were delivered to rooms bursting at the seams . And the special "Question of the Day" contest, developed... [More]

Improvements in these change trends are best achieved when integration testing largely precedes unit testing.
A well-accepted tenet of software engineering governance states, “The later you are in the life cycle, the more expensive things are to... [More]
