Better Software 2011


As much as I love to manage a global team that is as passionate about Software Security as Symantec’s Product Security, I’m still a software developer at heart. Needless to say, I had a real blast presenting at Better Software. “Cosmic Truths about Software Quality” by Karl Wiegers was a very insightful presentation about the real meaning of quality and how to achieve it. Backed by facts and research, Michael Mah made a very persuasive presentation on the real cost of offshoring and why geography matters.

According to the official conference numbers, my presentation about secure coding had one of the top ratings from all the 65+ speakers. Who said developers don’t care about security?
