The International Conference on Software Quality was the first conference I have ever spoke at. The next conference will be February 25-26, 2014 just North of Dallas. The theme is "Achieving Safe, Effective and Reliable Software"
The Call for Presentations just opened. Submissions need to be made by May 31, 2013. Highly recommended.
The ISO 9126-1 specifies three models of software quality: internal, external and in-use. The models for internal and external quality are identical.
Internal and External Quality Models
- Functionality compliance
- Fault tolerance
- Reliability compliance
- Usability compliance
- Time behavior
- Resource utilization
- Efficiency compliance
- Maintainability compliance
- Portability compliance
In-use Quality Model
A Lifehacker post pointed me to a useful Windows utility for quickly testing characters not found on the standard keyboard – CatchChar.
CatchChar runs in the system tray and is accessed via a keyboard combination. When activated, a popup menu appears with characters you have defined. This is a very quick way to access a set of characters when testing. It can be downloaded at http://helpingthings.com/index.php/insert-unicode-characters
