Software Quality

[ #19714 ]
Software quality can be ensured (well, we can try to ensure it) using different methods:
  • Formal methods
  • Software testing

You can also buy "quality software" which I would like not to comment.

What other ways for software quality do you remind of?

  • If possible, develop in the open, releasing the software with the freedom to modify and redistribute both commercially or gratis. Open Source/Free Software development itself is a means of "ensuring" (yes, we know you can't really ensure anything 100%) software quality. Decentralizing permission to use the code and permission to change the code can result in much more effort expended making quality code.

    As a corrolary, release early, release often. Have frequent releases, and make the source code repos
