Align IT Tour 2011: Development Managers: Session 2 of 3: Delivering High Quality Software through Agile
Enabling business innovation through collaborative software development
Do you oversee teams of developers, architects or testers? Interested in developing for the cloud? Then join me,
Jonathan Rozenblit, and my fellow Developer Evangelists, Christian Beauclair and John Bristowe, as we host this series of Development-oriented sessions. We’ll use real-world examples to demonstrate how you can minimize the time, cost, and risk of developing custom software applications.
Delivering high quality software is a risky undertaking. Development and Quality Assurance Managers are in a tight partnership over the war against software bugs. Software quality issues not only delay the time to market for a solution while increasing costs, but they also delay the subsequent benefits to the business. In a business world of increasing focus on compliance and control, Development and QA Managers must balance the need for agility against the reality of quality control. High quality software is the outcome of applying the combination of sound methodologies, best practices and supportive tooling.
This session will outline how to deliver high quality software through Agile and will demonstrate how to apply its practices to your projects and having them supported through tools like Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server.
