STAMP Success Story

Thanks to ReachOut, the STAMP team engaged external developers to evaluate and to amplify their own software testing suite.


The STAMP toolsuite has been evaluated by professional Java teams in Europe, including EC-DGIT, CGI, Orange, Sopra-Steria, Station-F startup campus, Universities and SMEs.
The campaign feedback raised several technical issues, needs for software extensions and more programming languages.
