I am kicking off this season’s VersionOne webinar series with a talk called Writing Quality Software on Wednesday, June 3rd at 12:00 pm Eastern Time (9:00 am Pacific Time). I’m excited because I believe that code qualities are at the core of good software. Here’s a description:
Being non-physical, software quality is very different than quality in physical goods. In today’s environment software must not only provide value now, it must be easy to change so it can continue to deliver value in the future. This is especially true on agile projects where short iterations and ongoing customer involvement means software needs to change frequently. Without paying attention a few key qualities the agile process of iterative development can soon degrade code into a maintenance nightmare. In this webinar we will explore specific qualities that make software more maintainable and easier to change.
