Quality attributes in Agile world

Features, features and more features… this is what we usually talk about. Our goal as part of Agile Software development team is to provide the most valuable functional requirements at shortest time. But what about Quality and Testing? Is is really everything about functionalities?

Quality attributes or non-functional requirements are, of course, equally important aspect of every product developed. In agile environment we usually have backlogs and lots of techniques covering the functional requirements and it looks like there aren’t that many things involving quality, testing and non-functional requirements. That’s why In this session we will discuss how could we manage the non-functional requirements and how the quality assurance is performed following the Agile mindset. We will see how could we measure and control quality. So the main learning points are:

  • Quality attributes management, meaning and importance
  • Measuring Non-functional requirements
  • Agile techniques for Non-functional requirements quality assurance
