Find here an overview of feedback:
In March 2022 I was invited to provide a guest lecture about Software Quality @ the Eindhoven University of Technology post-MSc program of Software Technology. Despite the lecture was considered too short, I scored an average 4,6 out of 5 for all other aspects evaluated.
Christian Neureiter, a professor of the University of Applied Sciences at Salzburg (AUT), wrote a nice post about my guest lecture I performed.
During my career I got many questions e.g. from purchasers in the software industry, asking how the maturity of software suppliers can be ‘checked’. To be able to answer that question you need to understand what software quality is. The person mentioning my book is working as a “Supplier Quality Engineer” at a multinational and apparently reading my book helped him in understanding software quality better.
He wrote that the book was an “amazing read” and pointed out that this is the case not only for software developers, but as well as others in the software industry. I couldn’t agree more.
As TIOBE Software is honored to be mentioned in my book, I am honored to be mentioned by TIOBE Software in their post.
This is what I liked about his post: “Because it’s a neat work that completely changes my understanding of quality in software.”
Apparently my book did contribute to the understanding of software quality by this reader.
31st of May I gave a virtual presentation of my book, addressing the 1+3 Software Quality Model.
The organizer of the presentation posted this nice post on LinkedIn just after the event.
The reader wrote in his e-mail: “Excellent book, well and clearly written, very practical and applicable almost immediately.”.
How nice to receive such e-mails.
March-8 I gave a virtual presentation of my book to Altran. Like the Altran-team-manager wrote in his post: “Ger gave an excellent overview of the book and his ideas about Software Quality: it is more than just testing!”. Indeed, that is exactly what the book is addressing, software quality is more than mere testing.
My book was read by this Dutch software engineer who send me an e-mail in which he wrote: “I am pleasantly surprised. Interesting content with a wide area of knowledge that is nice to read.”. Such feedback is, of course, very much appreciated.
Pavlin is a Software Quality Director at Bosch.io and he was one of the reviewers of the book. In his post he wrote “If you manage software teams, especially if you are quality manager this book is for you!”. Addressing that you don’t need to be a software engineer to read and understand the book.
Yogesh was one of the reviewers of the book. It is nice to read the following in his post: “I must say that this is an exceptionally useful and pragmatic book, written by someone, who truly cares and takes responsibility to improve the profession.”.
