10 Ways to Build Quality Into Software

Exploring the possibilities of high-quality software

Quality is essentially about meeting user expectations. Consistently. Reliably. Confidently.

Building Quality In

1. Slow down to speed up

You either do it fast, or thoroughly.

2. Keep the user in mind at all times

The story isn’t done until the right user can use it.

3. Focus on the integration points

4. Make it visible

5. Error handling for humans

6. Stop and fix errors when they’re found

Done means done. End of story.

7. Prevent it from occurring again

8. Reduce the noise

Good design is simple. Good design is also good quality.

9. Reduce.Re-use.Recycle.

10. Don’t rely on someone else to discover errors
