"From a security perspective never would switch to Android, sorry. For me, also quality includes security."

"That's because you're sensible. I'm totally with you and agree with what you say, I just don't think that we're both talking about formal inspection as it's portrayed here."

"What I read here is that it's a good idea to write good specifications when there are high criticality and precision risks. I do not read that it's wise to carry out formal document review with fake metrics (as you point out). Nor do I…"

The Regression Rate - The unknown unknown?

Posted on September 17, 2014 at 18:36 0 Comments

I have talked earlier today to my old manager and asked him if he has found a book or a blog post about something we have measured inside the last project we did together (over years):

  • regression rate per new function
  • regression rate per bug fix

He also didn't find anything about that metric but is also working in his new role to get the data again: The regression rate for his team.
