Last month, I blogged about the different advice you can get from experts about how to measure software quality. I was chatting about the range of opinions on defect tracking with performance test guru Scott Barber, and he asked if I’d like to speak at the upcoming STP Online Summit: Delivering Value with Testing Metrics, Dec 13-15. Heck, yeah! I’m usually in the audience or facilitating one of these shindigs, so it’s a real honor to be included amongst such an expert team of presenters.
In preparation for my presentation, I wrote two articles outlining the arguments both for and against defect tracking:
- Quality metrics: Defect tracking throughout the software lifecycle
- Software quality: When defect tracking is not necessary
I also asked Paul McMahon, author of Integrating CMMI and Agile Development for his take on defect tracking, which he wrote about in his tip:
My research on the topic unveiled so many informative tips that we put together a metrics guide for our readers: Quality metrics: A guide to measuring software quality.
Take a look and let us know what you think!
