Drupal & Quality Assurance

“The maintenance of a desired level of quality in a service or product, especially by means of attention to every stage of the process of delivery or production.”

This is how the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) defines quality assurance.

In this presentation we will discuss the growing need for rigorous quality assurance systems. When the internet was young and everything was markup and flat, QA was nice but not necessary. With the rise of Web 2.0 and the increasing popularity of CMS’s being used to fill a need for dynamic websites Quality Assurance is now a requirement.
