Gary Richardson, University of Houston
I tout David's FP articles and materials as the best way to move forward in the activity of estimating in our new world. In fact, I used some of his materials in a book I just completed Readings in Information Technology
Project Management.


Howard Rhodes, University of Applied Sciences, Bochum Germany
I'm an associate lecturer for project management at the University of Applied Sciences in Bochum, Germany. Last weekend I found myself working on my presentation material for project estimation and I wanted to add some meat to the topic of software estimation. After studying my books from Meredith, Pressmann and Sommerville (all renowned professors on project management / sofware engineering) and having found nothing of real substance I went on the prowl on the Internet. Luckily I found your "Function Points Analysis Training Course". You saved my weekend and provided me with enough material for me to understand the basics of FPA and to keep my students awake for a couple of hours. I am very very grateful to you for this!

I'm convinced of the quality of your materials and would like very much to use the other material you are offering to lecturers / instructors. I'd very much appreciate it if you could send me your Instructor Packet for Function Point Analysis.

...and thanks again for saving my weekend!

I am teaching a project management course and I plan to use your Function Points Analysis Training Manual (and distribute it to the students).
Your openness in sharing your knowledge is appreciated.

Therrezinha Fernandes, Université Laval Québec Canada
I am giving a course in IT project management and I found your website while
searching for information about Function Points. I found the Function Point
Training Manual very well done and intend to use it in my courses.

Tom Le, Unversity of HCMC, Vietnam
I am an instructor in Software Engineering at public University in HCMC Vietnam. Thanks for letting me use your materials in my courses. My students benefit from them.

Alberto Aguilar, Tecnológico de Monterrey México
I’m a professor teaching “IT Project Management” at Tecnológico de Monterrey Campus Chihuahua, Mexico and I am using your execellent materials in my course. Many thanks.

J. Fernando Vega-Riveros, Unversity of Puerto Rico
I am a faculty member in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Puerto Rico. I teach two courses in which we need students to use software metrics. One is Software Engineering and the other is Design Project in Computer Engineering. I intend to use your materials in my courses.
