Ger Cloudt studied electronics at the University of Applied Sciences in Venlo (the Netherlands) and has more than 35 years of experience in in-product software development across different industries, such as industrial automation, healthcare, automotive, semiconductors, security, and building technologies.

During the course of his career, he has worked at companies like Philips, NXP, Bosch and ASML, and still works at the latter as a software quality manager.

After developing software for over 15 years, Ger became a software development manager, leading numerous teams in software development.

During all these years, he developed a vision on what really matters in software development which he has attempted to encapsulate in his book “What is Software Quality?”.
