“There is only two ways to write code. Edit and pray, or test and verify.”

– Michael Feathers, Working Effectively with Legacy Code

For our second Software Development Leadership (SDL) Meetup, we were thrilled to have ABODO.com’s Vice President of Engineering, Louie Penaflor (@restlessthinker), present on the topic of software testing. ABODO is a rapidly growing Madison startup with the mission of creating a new, better way to find apartments. Louie’s presentation slide deck can be seen here.

Key topics covered included:

  • Today’s software landscape
  • De-risking software projects
  • Developing and investigating team culture
  • QA best practices
  • Software Quality at Top Speed
