About the speaker:

Ian Howles

Senior Director, Cognizant Technology Solutions

Ian has nearly 30 years of experience in the field of business management, software testing, quality and process improvement. He is executive director of the UK Testing Board and Trustworthy Software Foundation and is a frequent speaker at testing conferences. In 2010 Ian became a Chartered Fellow (FBCS CITP) BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT.

About the topic:

Providing quality systems is of paramount importance to our customers and to our own businesses and it ensures that we are able to grow those businesses.

The "Wow factor" is  because our web applications become great to use, fast, secure, do what they should and not what they should not.

 

Installing quality into our system development lifecycle can be seen at three different levels.

• Proactive QA as part of the development process.

• Reactive QA deployment

• Monitoring of QA in production

One exciting approach to proactive QA is Test Driven Development(TDD) which drives the development process to ensure testability and quality.

 

Talk structure:

• Why bother with a good approach to development.

• How do we bake in quality? 

• What is shift left?

• What is shift right?

• What is shift up

 

Ian Howles is an expert in this area and will provide a comprehensive overview to seed a wonderful discussion on this most important topic. 

We look forward to seeing you on October 3rd at 7.30pm.
