Killing Bugs like Starship Troopers

A session at CodePaLOUsa 2012

  • Tim Adams

Friday 16th March, 2012

10:00am to 11:00am (EST)

Forget about calling Terminix or Orkin; NIST estimates software bugs cost the U.S. economy approximately $2.2B per year and that problem could cost you serious time, money, and very importantly credibility with your internal and external customers. What can a QA/Test/Project Manager professional do to battle a problem that is as old as software itself? Join Randy Pagels (a.k.a. Major Kilgore) and Tim Adams (a.k.a. Captain Obvious) as they discuss combat strategies and tactics in getting these nasty suckers where they eat (production), live (testing and staging), and breed (development). See how we can defeat the dreaded No RePro bug which over the years has ravaged countless dollars, vast hours, and broken the spirit of many software soldiers. Witness the safeguards they deploy to prevent eradicated bugs from returning from grave to feed upon your resources again and again. Watch how we mobilize all the branches of the armed services (analysts, developers, testers, users, and project managers) to defeat this enemy and victoriously fly your banner with pride.
