verticle line As each month and year passes we inevitably ask ourselves – where does the time go? It is something none of us has enough of and it appears especially true when we are setting out to design and develop new products. In this November edition of the ICS Newsletter, we seek to make it easier to program with Qt more efficiently and address the many challenges inherent to software development projects in general. In my CEO Blog, I discuss the software supply chain and why employing a surge strategy can deliver projects without slippage and on budget. We also have numerous blog topics in addition to live and on-demand webinars to pique your interest. Enjoy!
