It is hard to argue the bold declaration made over a decade ago that, "software is eating the world!", because software has become increasingly foundational to almost every aspect of our lives. We wake up to our smart device alarm on the device that likely put us to sleep the night before. During the day, we bounce from one software enabled device to another and probably don't really think twice about the massive global software economy, not to mention the quality of that software. So what does quality have to do with software economics, and what exactly does "software quality economics" mean? Those are a couple of questions Matt Klassen will delve into in this inaugural podcast of a new series all about software quality and the impact is has - both negative and positive - on our companies, our jobs and the lives we live each and every day.
