In yesterday’s presentation, Dr. Starke addressed the concept of quality, which is difficult to define in software. Unsurprisingly, it is understood differently by the various stakeholders or they are often unable to explain what exactly they require in terms of quality. Dr. Gernot Starke showed how software quality can be specified and fulfilled in concrete terms in order to ultimately develop better systems.

A total of 25 participants listened to his captivating presentation. The atmosphere was relaxed and engaging, as Dr. Gernot Starke is a popular personality even outside the tech industry and the author of countless specialist books. It was a real pleasure to welcome him and listen to him.

We would like to thank Urs Enzler and Daniel Marbach, the founders and organizers of .NET Usergroup Zentralschweiz, as well as our Marko Marković, Software Architect at BBT, who actively supported the two gentlemen and ensured that the event could be held at our premises.
