We were excited to welcome Ross Smith back GSummit. Below are his bio, video and slides from GSummit SF 2014:
Ross Smith is a Director of Test in Skype at Microsoft. He really enjoys getting a paycheck to “play” with software for almost 23 years at Microsoft. The projects he’s been a part of have used gamification and game mechanics to help crowdsource quality related effort for over 10 years. He is one of the authors of “The Practical Guide to Defect Prevention” and holds six patents, latest in Nov, 2012. His 42projects effort has aspired to promote cultural change, “bring buzz and laughter to the hallways”. In December 2011, he was invited to the White House for a discussion on women in STEM. He has blogged on “Take the Work out of Work”. The efforts of his teams have been featured in a number of books, including “Play to Win” “Play at Work”, “Game On” and this is his second GSummit experience.
