Title: How to build high-quality software faster and cheaper
Summary: High-quality software is not expensive. High-quality software is faster and cheaper to build and maintain than low-quality software, from initial development all the way through total cost of ownership (Caper Jones , The Economics of Software Quality, 2011). In many projects, the only documentation available to programmers is the code itself. Requirement specifications and design documents can go out of date, but the source code is always up to date. Consequently, it's imperative that the source code be of the highest possible quality (Steve McConnell, Code Complete, 2nd Ed , 2004).
In this session, Dony will share the software development tools and work flow her team utilizes in her project in order to build high quality software in an agile environment, She will also discuss how to meet fast-paced business demands and how to architect systems for resiliency and redundancy to bring value to the users and the firm.
