Quality Assurance, Project Rescue.
Asp.Net, Sql Server, Link checkers, Load testing tools.
The quality assurance team worked very closely with the business owners to match their expectations with the value that the product delivered. The product was now ready with only a slight delay in the schedule.
In order expand their reach and provide features to their audience, the company has to continuously develop new products. The business needed a product that would help users enhance their experience to search for a fare. The development work was given to a contractor and significant payments were already made. The development tenure was about to get over but the product was far from what it should have been. With only a few development cycles left the business wanted to get the product ready.
The product was already been developed whose processes were unknown to the team at Continuity1. Quality Assurance team had to jump in at the time when there was not much time left to understand the requirements and deliver the end product. There was no clear way of coordination between the developers and quality assurance team at Continuity1.
The quality assurance team spent significant energy into understanding the value of the product. The product was broken down into parts based on the how much value each part of the product delivered to the user and the business. A communication channel and problem tracking was enforced to keep strict checks on the development and fixes. This made the development team focus on the core of the product and the purpose for which it was being created.
In order to expedite the development process, the quality assurance team along with a group of developers at Continuity1, provided insightful feedback to the developer about practices to follow and things to improvise on. To weed out any ticking time bombs from the code, the quality assurance team also performed code reviews.
