Something’s Rotten in the State of Quality

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Developers, do you really trust QA’s when they find a “bug"? QA folks, do you believe that developers have tested their work before they hand it over? You may identify with this atmosphere of contention surrounding QA. But there’s one underlying question for every team: are we building a quality product?

The definition of quality should go beyond a list of test cases executed against requirements. From the father of the quality revolution (Edward Deming) to the work of Martin Fowler and Mike Cohn, we’ll lay a theoretical groundwork for what quality is, then we will showcase these definitions with examples. We’ll end with specific activities along the SDLC that actually help assure quality. You’ll take away what it truly means to assure quality as well as ways to start putting it into practice.

This session is targeted towards all participants in the software development process: developers, project managers, product owners, business analysts, and quality assurance testers.
