The Capability Maturity Model, designed for assessing the formality of a software development process, was initially described back in 1989.

On ne peut généralement pas le prévoir. Parfois, on en prend connaissance à la dernière minute. Mais cela peut aussi être le moment le plus attendu de l’année.

If you tried a few of the tips in the first part of this series, you probably realized that making a website accessible to all visitors doesn’t require much time, or cause much stress.
