At Lighthouse, we always focus on having fun—and 2017 was no exception! Let’s take a look back through the year that was!
No matter the size or scale of your software projects, you likely rely on one or more third-party vendors to get the job done. But, if you’re not writing quality criteria into your contracts, you might be stuck overpaying when they under-deliver.
For a lot of companies, especially those in retail and eCommerce, the Holiday Season is a make-or-break time of year. However, in the rush to “survive” the increased traffic and overloaded servers, are we missing a golden opportunity to improve quality by discovering our key vulnerabilities?
There’s no question that the Holiday Season is the most wonderful time of the year. However, that doesn’t mean it’s not without its own challenges—especially for leaders. Whether it’s leading an IT department or coordinating a tense family visit, Jeff Van Fleet, Lighthouse’s President and CEO, advocates addressing them head on.
When software projects frequently miss release dates and go over-budget, unplanned rework is often the culprit. So why aren’t more companies Shifting Left to get testing and QA involved earlier during sprints?
Every year, the holiday shopping rush reminds us of a fundamental truth: make sure your website performs under load. But in the haste to perform load testing, it’s worth considering adding another equally-important arrow to your quiver: code analysis.
Why do so many salespeople abandon honesty and resort to deception tactics to get a meeting? Despite the frustration, Jeff Van Fleet, Lighthouse’s President and CEO, thinks we can all learn a very valuable lesson from them.
The success of your software testing and QA team comes down to one thing: having the right people in the right roles. That can be quite a challenge, though—which is why we developed the Gauntlet™ to ensure our clients get the best personnel out there.
If the 3 Perils of Software Development™—Defects, Delays, and Dollars—are regularly driving your projects off schedule and over budget, getting your QA and testing team back on course can be hard. That’s why applying a metrics-based testing methodology is so important—it’s the most reliable course correction there is.
In the wake of the Equifax breach, software security is more paramount than ever. But as software applications continue to grow more complex and hackers’ methods grow more and more sophisticated, how can we safeguard our systems and prevent these kinds of breaches in the future?
