Who’s in the driver’s seat of that flashy new app or widget, you or your tools and processes? If your tools and processes are dictating how you do everything how do you innovate? How do you rapidly respond to customer feedback? How can this new flashy app you are creating be any better than the last one?
Let’s be honest what organization isn’t under some kind of transformation be it Waterfall to Agile or adoption of DevOps and Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) or something else. It’s the reality of our industry, Change, it’s the only constant. So why do our toolboxes look virtually the same as 10 years ago, or worse yet they are busting at the seams because you can’t shed dead weight?
It’s time to take a good hard look at your toolbox and determine who stays, who goes and what you need to go shopping for. Can you build it in house or is it better to buy a commercial tool? What do you need to consider when decommissioning tools and managing the change that surrounds it? It’s not always an easy choice, buy vs build, keep vs put out to pasture, we will explore all these and some with practical examples along with tips and tricks to take back to your own organization. What’s good enough? nothing is perfect, stop looking for perfection and stop trying to build it. While this presentation will focus on Quality tooling from code quality to function and performance testing and reporting the concepts apply to the broader software development tools.
