Code Quality is the Responsibility of C-level Execs; Not Just the Developer’s!
Are you pressured to write amazing code in zero time with no bugs? Does it feel like a “set to fail” situation with every new action item?
Rest assured it’s the same in every organization. Small comfort, we know, but we’re planning on changing that. Yuval Tsuk, Typemock CEO, deeply believes that Code Quality is the C-level responsibility – as much as it is yours, if not more.
In his 2014 prediction for Visual Strategy Magazine, Yuval explains why code quality must start with a strategic decision taken by top management. This decision is not just pretty-talk, it includes providing the developers with the best-in-market dev tools, giving developers top-notch training and ensuring development processes & procedures fully support code quality across the entire PLC.
Surely, each developer is responsible for the quality of his/her work, but at the end of the day it’s not about more QA staff or working longer hours. It’s all about making quality top priority for everyone involved.
