Software Quality Days 2018, Tools Challenge


Published on

In this year's Tools Challenge, four major vendors of software quality-related tools were invited to "battle". This year's questions were: "What challenges do you see in software quality in the next 1-5 years? How do you prepare for the challenges?"

I had the honor to represent Microsoft in this year's tools challenge - and we won :-)

I really enjoyed the event because having to talk about such a broad topic within 12 minutes is in fact a real challenge.
