Good software quality is something every developer feels strongly about. But what happens if the quality of the software is not what was anticipated? How can it be saved? The solution lies in the Software Development Quality Map: It takes teams on a journey of discovery and reveals various possibilities for improvement in an entertaining and playful manner using a type of treasure map.
The map covers more than 80 topics in relation to software quality, arranged figuratively in eight countries. Readers can follow the orange route or explore the countries under their own steam. They sail through the “Stream of Team Building”, take a short break in the “Gulf of Legacy Code”, before passing “Bug Bay” and the “Release Monster” to reach the land of the “Product Release”.
They can move forwards and back, exploring the countries along with their quality aspects. There is no fixed order in the Software Development Quality Map. Only the preconditions in the “Product Production” country are clearly laid down: First define the quality, then check and commit to quality, before finally getting started.
