Peter Antman, one of the presenters at MeetUI 2013, had a great presentation about how you can better integrate quality assurance into your development processes. Using techniques from Toyota’s Lean methodology, he claims that by empowering the developer to be able to stop the entire production line when a defect is found, you increase the overall quality and productivity of the team.
Further, he shares his thoughts on “fixing broken windows,” which stems from how New York City managed to decrease overall crime rate by cleaning up regular trash. By implementing a similar mindset into your development team you can decrease the amount of “lazy bugs” that slip through.
