The world is living, sadly and globally, something new for us: the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic has changed the world and life in a few weeks. Now everything takes another perspective; now we appreciate with more intensity the essential of the life.
In spite of this worldwide situation, IFPUG announces that the March edition of MetricViews is now available. In this edition you can read what worldwide metric professionals have to say as they share with us their views on metrics.
