Metrics at STAR Conference


I think I forgot to mention that I’ll be speaking at STAR this spring. You’d think I’d be pimping hwtsam, but instead I’m speaking about something barely mentioned in the book at all – metrics. Software metrics are an old passion of mine – something I used to be heavily involved with, but much less so in my current role.

That, of course, doesn’t stop me from talking about how teams can use (or misuse!) metrics to make critical decisions. I think it will be a fun talk, and sometime between now and May, I’ll figure out how to try and sell a few copies of the book too.

I’m betting that as the conference approaches that I’ll have a few more metric related posts to share.

    Hi Alan,

    Here is a Google group discussion that might give you some interesting combinations and view points about "metrics"…

    I would be more than happy to be the reviewer of your presentation/paper (if you are looking for some reviewers for your presentation at STAR)…

    All the best for your presentation …

    Thanks Shrini – I’m pretty well covered on the data and review front, but I appreciate the offer.
