This Web seminar will instruct Java developers how they can readily
identify and efficiently fix problems in their code earlier in the
development cycle. Learn about the challenges of improving code
quality from a seasoned software development professional from SAS.
Take away practical techniques and solutions as described by
Instantiations senior technical executives and co-authors of the
popular book Eclipse: Building Commercial Quality Plugins.
"Fire Your QA Department and Increase the Quality of Your Software!"
For years we've all heard some variation of that message. The answer
always involves getting software developers to change their processes,
think harder, use better methodologies, create better architectures,
and the like. How well has that worked for you and your organization?
The challenge of changing human behavior, the complexity induced by
far-flung development teams, downsizing, outsourcing, open source, and
feature-rich software systems (not to mention the development
environments used to create them) all increase the difficulty of
building high-quality software systems on time and within budget.
Pushing the resolution of quality issues into your QA and Testing
organizations, or worst case, onto your customers, is at best
expensive and can certainly be damaging to your reputation. It's common
knowledge that if problems can be found and fixed early in the
development process, it will result in better software, lower costs,
faster time-to-market, and most importantly, happier users.
Assuming that you and your development team don't reside on another
planet, you already know about the problems induced by the above. What
you may not know is how software development technology has advanced
to the point where a whole lot of quality and efficiency can be
"automatically" built in while your teams do development.
Attendees will learn:
* Common problems and challenges of implementing code quality
* Strategies and techniques for building quality into code earlier in
the development cycle
* Tools that empower developers to achieve greater code quality
You could be a winner: 25 attendees of this Web seminar will receive
copies of the new Clayberg/Rubel book, Eclipse: Building Commercial
Quality Plugins, 2nd Edition, courtesy of Addison-Wesley. Sign up
