February 2010 Verification Horizons Newsletter Now Available

For those of you who didn’t make it to DVCon this year, you missed one of the things that makes the conference worth attending – the free goodies in the registration packet. Clearly the most interesting and informative such item was the February edition of our Verification Horizons newsletter (for which this blog was named). As both the editor of VH and the General Chair of DVCon, I could not have been more pleased.

You can see the online version at http://www.nxtbook.com/nxtbooks/mentor/verificationhorizons_201002/

Here’s a list of the articles:
