The year of 2017 is just started, but some good news is already at the door! The Consortium for IT Software Quality (CISQ) founded by the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) (operated by Carnegie Mellon University) and the Object Management Group (OMG) has kindly invited us to contribute to the CISQ Technical Debt specification under development.
Education activities sponsored by Mail.Ru Group and undertaken at Bauman MSTU have led to curious results. Early in December, the blog author has been awarded as one of four Best Trainers of the joint project of Mail.Ru and BMSTU in 2013/2014. Winners have been chosen after a monthlong closed ballot by some 200 students, colleagues, and managers of the project.
