What is betatesting?
Software Developer’s Journal uses a unique technique to guarantee the highest quality of our articles.
Most magazines prepare the articles using solely the knowledge and experience of an editorial team. SDJ does much more. Our active readers take part in the editorial process as betatesters.
You can become one of them today!
