Quality is everyone’s responsibility. Each person is responsible for that part of the code or project artefact or service that he/she is expected to deliver to internal or external customers; and Quality counts for each deliverable. It is the primary distinguishing factor that imparts a competitive edge.
This intense workshop covers the fundamental concepts of Software Quality. The program is meant for every software professional in an organization, since it seeks to familiarize the participants with crucial Quality concepts. No prior knowledge is required. The boot-camp on software quality covers the basics of Quality & aims to sensitize the participants to Quality in context of Software Engineering.
