The Good,
The Bad,
And The Buggy.

When over 6 million software professionals and 22,000 companies across the globe use SmartBear tools to develop, deploy, test, and maintain some of the world’s most innovative applications, we know that the standard of quality can make or break your success.

Alex McPeak and Bria Grangard will be sharing their own stories, talking to guests, and analyzing different case studies to consider what works and what doesn’t when it comes to online user experiences. Because a lot of the time, quality is in the details. We hope this series encourages software teams to take a second look at their own projects to determine: is it good, is it bad, or is it buggy?
