Companies spend more than $300 billion per year worldwide debugging software. It costs four to five times as much to fix software bugs after release rather than during the development process. Demand for good software is at an all-time high. Building reliable, high quality software remains a major challenge.
(QSD) is a new certification developed by PEOPLECERT in collaboration with the Software Improvement Group (SIG), to certify programmers who have the necessary skillset to produce high quality code.
The Quality Software Development certification, is aimed at software developers who want to understand and implement leading principles and processes to deliver well maintainable, high quality code. This qualification enables professionals to provide organizations with a competitive advantage: better code = better business.
By providing practical knowledge, tools, techniques and guidelines adaptable to any business sector or industry, QSD enables professionals to produce reliable software systems that can be tested and modified with ease and speed.
The course is hands-on and primarily for software developers, who would like to learn how to write well-maintainable quality code. It also applies to software development teams who want to learn from best practices, to ensure they produce well-maintainable software. The course is also open to technical IT management.
Participants are expected to bring their own laptop with a development environment that supports either Java or C#. Code samples are available for both Java and C.#
Recommended background: at least 2 years of development experience in Object-Oriented Programming language, or a BSc in Computer Science or Software Engineering.
Note: The QSD exam voucher has a limited validity. The participant is scheduled to take the exam at the end of the second day of the course. If the participant choses to take the exam áfter the course, the voucher expiry date should be observed.
Please note that your registration for participation is binding.
