‘Zero defects’ is finally the new ambition of the SDLC IT. The Digital world is pushing us more and more towards the Holy Grail is software quality. In the last few decades the IT industry has looked at zero defects as a pain in the ass. New techniques and frameworks have put pressure on quality of software development therefore, enabling higher quality of work. But how brand new is this? Is this really the newest evolution or are we reinventing the wheel again?

In this talk Ewald will take us through the new reality of zero defects software development processes and revisit sometimes, prehistoric ideas from the past. Going back to the 60’s and 70’s to look at the software development processes where we had one engineer doing everything. Then we go back to early this milenium where there was a specific split between all disciplines in the SDLC and managers, developers, and testers looked to be on different sides on the SDLC.

Back to the current age and look how we now try to implement zero defects software and the new high performance teams where the team consits only out of DevOps engineers and also provide in-depth quality checks across the software cycle, supporting ongoing business resilience and reducing the cost of quality through optimized an optimized SDLC by detecting bugs before applications go live. Going back at the 60’s and 70’s and shifting left to focus on end-to-end quality early in the lifecycleIn the end learning from the past and implementing to move from ‘zero defects’ to ‘first time right’!
