Quality Archaeology: Learning From The Past To Understand The Present
In 2005, I unwittingly started on a career in software quality. Fifteen years later, I find myself alternately wondering why we are still falling into the same old patterns, and sometimes being proud of how far we have come.
Join me on this journey as I look at what is changed, what has not, and what recurring patterns I see after over 15 years in quality. I will look at what used to be impossible and is now standard, what still seems to cause us trouble, and I will even do some estimations about the future based on what the artefacts from the past tell us.
