Albert Brand on Speed vs Quality in Software Development

Xebia Wave Long Background


We invited my friend and colleague Albert Brand on to discuss speed vs quality in software development.

Some of the topics we cover this episode, in order:
☑️ The power of the right environment
☑️ Evolving software vs rebuilding it, and the not invented here syndrome
☑️ Trust is very complex
☑️ What does 100% unit test coverage mean?
☑️ The sweet spot of quality and speed

My favourite quotes from Albert Brand this episode:
– “Are you really going fast when it slows you down later?”
– “Isn’t speed just another quality?”
