WHAT:

      “Quality is No Game: How to Ensure Quality in Game Development,” Presented by Mark Hammer of SmartBear and Henry Golding of Microsoft at the Develop in Brighton Conference
 

WHEN:

Thursday, July 10, 2014, 11:15 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. BST
 

WHERE:

Hilton Brighton Metropole, Kings Road, Brighton, East Sussex, BN1 2FU

This session addresses how development, testing and other teams can collaborate to address areas of quality, how the lines between development and test are blurring and the role development-led automation can play in quality game development.

“Most developers understand the benefits of high quality code and identifying defects as early in the process as possible – before they reach the customer or even before they reach the testing team,” said Mark Hammer. “But how do you address quality at the development level? We explore the processes to put in place to ensure high quality early in the process and the tools to help in this effort – to ensure defects are found in the development stage, before testing and before the game hits the gamer.”

As Senior Product Director at SmartBear, Mark Hammer often speaks and writes about the software development process with a special emphasis on code and artifact review. He has been helping organizations manage peer code and document review for many years. He has over 20 years of experience in software product management and marketing with a strong track record in developing customer-focused business solutions in both business-to-business and business-to-consumer markets.

Henry Golding is a Software Development Engineer in Test at Microsoft. He works closely with Rare Ltd, part of Microsoft Studios, and a first party developer dedicated to innovation on Microsoft platforms. He was previously a Gameplay Programmer at video gaming developer Eurocom and a Tools Programmer with Lionhead Studios.

So the dumpster is on fire. Again. The site's down. Your boss's face is an ever-deepening purple. And you begin debating whether you should join the #incident channel or call an ambulance to deal with his impending stroke. Yes, we know this is a developer's fault. There's plenty of time for blame later. Postmortems have a macabre name because they were once intended to be Viking-like funerals for someone's job. But we're civilized now. Sort of. So we call them post-incident reviews. Fires are never going to stop. We're human. We miss bugs. Or we fat finger a command - deleting dozens of servers and bringing down S3 in US-EAST-1 for hours - effectively halting the internet. These things happen.
Hackers took three days to identify and exploit a known vulnerability in Equifax’s web applications. I will share new data that reveals why three days (at most) is the new normal for DevSecOps teams to move new business /security requirements from design into production. This session aims to enlighten DevOps teams, security and development professionals by sharing results from the 4th annual State of the Software Supply Chain Report -- a blend of public and proprietary data with expert research and analysis.Attendees can join this session to better understand how DevSecOps teams are applying lessons from W. Edwards Deming (circa 1982), Malcolm Goldrath (circa 1984) and Gene Kim (circa 2013) to improve their ability to respond to new business requirements and cyber risks.

The digital transformation is real! To adapt, IT professionals need to transform their own skillset to become more multi-dimensional by gaining both depth and breadth of a wide variety of knowledge and competencies. Historically, while IT has been built on a foundation of specialty (or "I" shaped) silos, the DevOps principle of "shifting left" is opening up opportunities for developers, operational staff, security and others to grow their skills portfolio, advance their careers and become "T"-shaped.
