It’s a universal truth: work too much and it starts to wear on you. When that happens, a little time away may be just what the doctor—or Lighthouse CEO—ordered.
As a software testing company, we’ve been to more conferences than we can count. We’ve seen the good, the bad, and the ugly—and we’re here to tell you: whether you’re a tester, test lead, scrum master, director, or CIO, QA or the Highway is definitely worth your time!
When it comes to the quality of your software, 65 percent of your total improvement comes from having the right people, trained with the right skills, working in the right roles. That’s no easy task, however. So let us start you off on the right track with the Gauntlet™ QA skills assessment!
It’s not always easy, but taking the time to recognize the support your family, friends, and coworkers have given you isn’t just a great way to get in touch with yourself, it’s a fast track to fostering deeper relationships. It’s something Jeff Van Fleet, Lighthouse’s President and CEO, recommends we all do on a regular basis.
Just like New Year’s resolutions, it’s easy to give up on driving changes in software testing and QA because of a lack of short-term success. Isn’t it time we changed this mindset—and started focusing on the journey as well as the destination?
Whether your software testing and QA organization has two people or 200, the quality of your software depends on the capability and proficiency of your testers. But how do you measure that? That’s where we come in.
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.
