Quality Assurance & Control

Quality Assurance & Control

Software quality assurance and control has taken many forms over the years, from it being the responsibility of the development team alone through to it being a separate function all together, and recently back into the realms of a development concern. It's widely accepted that the role of QA, whether manual or otherwise, is focussed around the testing and verification of software releases as they're released. While this is certainly a big part of the job, we believe that there's much more to it.

Quality control is a vital part of any production line, software or otherwise but it isn't all that can be done. True quality assurance digs deep into the processes that underpin production and aims to change them for the better in order to improve all downstream dependants and ensure a ‘smoother ride' to project completion.

Mentoring and Training

In our opinion, ensuring that a team and those who manage that team are fully invested and on board with what needs to be done to establish meaningful test coverage is one of the most challenging but necessary aspects of the job. This can take many forms including workshops, 1-to-1's, work and office culture changes, and open forums.

Effective and efficient software development requires substantial operational and architectural investment. Software testing commands the same level of attention and know how. We pride ourselves on our knowing what's needed to build and maintain effective test frameworks.

Acceptance and Regression

We're automation first when it comes to acceptance and regression testing. We feel that if you can automate then you should. We go a step further by assessing your software’s architecture to determine appropriate interception and mocking points. If we say that it can't be automated, then it really can't.

It's all very well being sure that an application functions that way your customers expect it to, but what about validating that it still functions given all kinds of unexpected parameters and situations? We do everything from accessibility, load, and operational and basic security testing. We take the view that this type of testing belongs with the QA department and should be assessed as part of planning any new project.
