Your integration, functional and non-functional testing gives you a good idea if your code will work on Production. But how do you go about measuring the quality of code that already seems to work? How do you make that measurement repeatable? How do you share it with clients in government, finance or other large enterprises who are looking for a 3-5 year shelf-life from your code? In this talk, Stuart will introduce you to SQuaRE, the international standard collection for software quality. He'll give you a tour of all of the available and upcoming standards in this area, before taking a deep dive into the Product Quality Model from ISO/IEC 25010:2011. He'll explain what a quality measurement is, how you link them to your project's quality criteria, and how you incorporate them into code reviews, QA teams and management decisions. You'll leave this talk ready to start measuring and improving the quality of your product or service, with the tools you need to not only maintain quality but also to keep increasing it over time, even when faced with staff turnover.
Talk presented at #PHPNW15 in October, 2015.
