Quality Coder 2017v1.0
Quality Coder 2017v1.0 was initiated by ICTA in 2017 with the goal of positioning Sri Lanka as a country outputting code of high quality. By this project, it is expected to cater the common issues among the Sri Lankan IT industry where high paid experienced individuals are forced to fix mundane errors in code or send it back and forth to ensure the code is of high quality when working with employees with less experience.
According to various parties ICTA have worked with, it was identified that Code Quality Standards should be taught from the start therefore the universities will output developers who are highly employable and ready to hit the ground running. If this was the case organizations will have much of a less burden in getting the new employees used to the industries standards and ensure they develop code which is easy to work with.
To overcome this, ICTA together with key individuals from Zone24x7, SyscoLABS, Virtusa, 99xTechnology, iTelaSoft, WSO2 & Tiqri initiated Quality Coder 2017v1.0 Training Programme. It is a mechanism to short circuit the years that an employee takes to learn the art of coding maintainable code.
‘Quality Coder’ hand book was developed using the curriculum used in the training programme which guides the developers with the best practices and knowledge extracted from a blend of the industry experts in the IT industry to produce high quality software products.
