Mobile Dev + Test 2017

Mobile Dev Test A Screenless Future Is Closer Than You Think

Somewhere near you is a device with a screen. You can’t live without that device. In fact, you are reading this right now on that—or another—device. Within a few years, the screens that we so depend on today will begin to disappear. After all, we are analog creatures, and we are meant to...

Agile Dev, Better Software & DevOps Conference East 2016

Collocated East Logo Agile Metrics: Make Better Decisions with Data

Some consider measurement in agile development destructive—or at the very least useless. Larry Maccherone disagrees and offers insight into how you can use metrics in an agile environment to make life better. How do you know when you are ready to introduce metrics into the environment?

Collocated East Logo Agile Requirements—From Breadth to Depth

Requirements elicitation and documentation can be frustrating in an agile process. Some interpret the Agile Manifesto statement “working software over comprehensive documentation” to mean that no requirements documentation is warranted because the code documents the requirements. Others...

Collocated East Logo Agile Snafus: When Good Teams Go Bad

Agile done well can lead to great successes—rapid delivery of business and user value, high product quality, fast time to market, and engineering productivity. Agile done poorly leads to skepticism of the methodologies, distrust of the principles, and failure to deliver—in essence, a snafu...

STARCanada Logo Accessibility Standards and Testing Techniques: Be Inclusive or Be Left Behind

While Information and Communication Technology (ICT) accessibility for a wider spectrum of users—including the blind—and their interfaces is being required by law across more jurisdictions, testing for it remains limited, naïve, and too late. The consequences of staying ignorant include...

STARCanada Logo Add Security Testing Tools to Your Delivery Pipeline

Lee Hawkins
A DevOps Primer: Whole Team Approaches for Better Software Quality

With fingers wagging and eyes squinting, they query Why didn’t you find this problem during testing? How many times have you tried to defend yourself with things like We can’t test everything or It’s a corner case? Everyone knows you can’t improve quality with testing alone, so what can...

Agile Dev, Better Software & DevOps Conference West 2016

Collocated West Logo A Case Study in Metrics-Driven DevOps
