About The Presentation

We are often surprised by the number of non-programming related issues that affect the professional’s efforts to develop quality software and web interfaces. Development efforts are constrained in a number of positive and negative ways. This talk addresses some of those current issues including software standards, licensing of software developers, issues of malpractice and liability for unanticipated software errors, and professional and ethical issues.
