An open discussion about what we do well and what we could do better as it relates to our software engineering practices.
Over the past few months, I've spoken to a number of people within Wikimedia Foundation with the goal of better understanding how we build software, what we do well, and what we could do better. The result of those discussions is the "Quality Big Picture" document. This session is intended to be a continuation of those discussions.
Please come prepared to discuss those things that you believe are going well and those things that we could improve.
Although it is unlikely that we could cover the Quality Big Picture document in it's entirety, we could select one of the topics from the document to discuss.
Possible discussion points from the QBP document:
- QA Tribe
- Tech Talks
- Code Health Group
- Bug/Defect Management
- Test Metrics
- Test Strategy
- Environment Parity
- Robust Test Data
- Long-Term data retention
- Data visualization
For more details about any of the above discussion points, please refer to the[[ https://docs.google.com/document/d/1AAFQNZt36TX5XVFajdbb1g-f-FSIvokhcqbBaSTXmK4/edit#heading=h.2fvj443fyzhk | Quality Big Picture document ]].
