The Quality Landscape
Let me just say that all too often quality is either taken for granted or completely missed and I'm not just talking about code quality either. I believe quality applies to everything we do throughout the lifecycle and needs to be accounted for. One Amazon.com Customer review stated:
"The best thing about this book, in my view, is the attitude the author takes toward software development. His consistent message is that quality and being ready for use isn't just about the software itself, but about making sure that the software is appropriate for and will work in the environment that you intend. He does a great job of breaking things down point by point and addresses a huge number of factors."
Please download and read the full Chapter 2 which provides a great overview and insights into The Quality Landscape.
