The first full Software Process and Measurement Cast posted on January 29th, 2007.  When the first cast posted we were on an every other week schedule whereas today we post weekly.  Over the next few weeks, I will be traveling.  The trip is a mixture of vacation and a board meeting but that does not mean you will have to forego your weekly SPaMCAST.  In place of our normal format, I will post a mixtape of the answers to the “If you could change two things” question I have been asking interviewees for nearly ten years.

SPaMCAST 391 will feature our top downloaded podcasts from the years of 2007 and 2008:

SPaMCAST 2 – Will McKnight on Process and Product Quality Assurance

Will used his wishes to talk about the need for an organizational process focus and the guidance to sustain process improvement.

SPaMCAST 4 – Stasia Iwanicki on Six Sigma

Stasia used her first wish to address requirements capture, development, and management.  Her second wish was for better measurement for supporting the software development process.

SPaMCAST 49 – Robin Goldsmith on Requirements

Robin used his wishes to discuss the need to capture and validate the real business requirements which lead to better systems.

If you enjoyed the snippets please use the links to listen to the whole interviews.  Next week 2009!

Gary Gack (whom I know and have interviewed on the Software Process and Measurement Cast – has posted a survey. Please take the time to fill it out!

Hope this finds you well and prospering. I’m conducting a survey on defect containment practices and metrics. I’m in hopes you or someone in your team (or maybe among your clients) will respond to the survey with either current or earlier data – it’s quite short. I’ll share a summary of the results with you when I get a reasonable # of responses (4 so far, since Friday). Please feel free to refer the link to anyone you think might participate – I plan to keep it live for an extended period.
