Software Quality Matters

Jeff Offutt

It seems that every day we hear about another software disaster that costs huge amounts of money, destroys equipment, leaks personal data, or kills. This is in addition to the many times every day we, as normal users, get tripped up by software bugs and poor design. Why? What can we do? This talk draws on Professor Offutt’s 30 years as a researcher, teacher, and consultant on software quality and software testing to explore root causes of what goes on. This discussion is non-technical and accessible to all users of software.
