Short 4-Hour Class On Improving Software Development Processes

A short, fast track 4 hours workshop on Improving Software Development Process is going to held on Friday 9th April 2010 by Humayun Quershi. Out of 370 members of PASHA and PSEB, only 14 qualifies CMMI level II but most of them can't afford certification cost. But I think its great chance for us to learn how to improve our processes. Further details on workshop is given below.
