IfSQ, Institute for Software Quality

The Institute for Software Quality was established in 2005 by a group of professionals involved in the development and deployment of computer software.

Code Inspection In Practice

Code Inspection In Practice

The Institute has analyzed, quantified and augmented existing research on software quality, and distilled this into a collection of Obstacles to Software Maintenance: strong indications that code will be error prone, hard to debug or costly to maintain.

We have collated those indicators into a coordinated set of three standards which are published here on this website, in booklet form and in the form of Courses and Workshops.

IfSQ's objective is to produce, publish and promote material that will help spread the practice of Code Inspection among development teams and their management worldwide.

Our strong hope is that eventually the idea of inspecting code before testing will be as self-evident as testing software before using it.

If your organisation is not yet applying Code Inspection, why not take some time to read our standards, and learn about the benefits of applying them. If you want more information, please feel free to contact us.
