Inspection Used in Various Ways

People who Review or Inspect code or any other document without proper training, don’t find many issues, wasting time, and missing the quick learning of how to prevent introducing issues in the first place. Furthermore, Reviews and Inspections can be used in even more ways than ‘just reviewing’ and ‘just finding bugs’.

In this session we will see some cases of using Reviews and Inspections with various unexpected and interesting outcomes:
– The review caused a redesign
– The review caused not to implement at all
– The review caused the document to be discarded as completely useless for its purpose
And we will see the use of Early Inspections feeding prevention even faster.

This will give you more flexible insights of applying Inspections to improve the quality of your software, which will lead to better ‘Quality on Time’: delivering better results, spending less time. For those who thought that Inspections only waste time, this presentation may give a fresh stimulus to reconsider.
