Quote of the day

“I sell software, not defects”

I was speaking with Isabel Margarido, a Ph.D. candidate, earlier today when she made this remark about her former job in industry. It is a strong statement about personal commitment, quality, and professional engineering responsibility. I’m going to remember and use that line, or some variation, in the future. Customers pay you for the software not the defects, so what do you plan to give them?
