Summary

This talk is about my software development methodology. It was refined during many years of work on real-life business and research software applications ranging from Medium to Large. Although using only simple known techniques and tools, this methodology guaranties projects are progressively converging towards 0-defects. I will end the talk by proposing a list of research topics of concrete interest for the hectic environment of software development.
