Quality 1Up : How to Use Game Theory to Drive a Cultural Change and Improve Quality

How do you inspire developers, testers, and teams to improve their testing practices and code quality? Have you ever wanted to provide greater visibility into your quality practices? Join Janna as she talks about one way you can help inspire teams to not only improve testing and quality practices, but drive and own that change. She’ll talk about how gamifying your quality practices and modding your role as a tester can build a community and a culture of quality. In today’s age of agile development and DevOps, software development has truly become a social activity. So we need to stop thinking about quality practices as simply written standards that people must follow. We need to start getting creative and use fun to raise quality practices within your organization.
