One of the things we pride ourselves on at nGen Works is the quality control and testing that we do for everything we build. I’ve always been one who delves into the minutiae, and being a likely end user of what we build, this role is a great fit.
An idea conceived on iChat.
Carl’s new idea: let’s offer quality control and testing as a service to other web shops, front-end and back-end developers, etc. Carl did some asking around and found that this type of service would be viable for many we know in the industry. From there the internal planning, conversations and development began.
Several team members have contributed to its development over the last couple of months:
- Travis Gertz took the lead by creating a wireframe/prototype, doing branding and design, complete with a logo. He also made everything work.
- Rachel Gertz provided content guidance plus the words to convey the idea so it all made sense.
- Fred Boyle continues work on a custom management system that will be unveiled in future iterations of the service.
- Carl has been there for guidance, the legal bits, and as a sounding board.
- Me, I’m in charge so I’ve just been telling everyone what to do. And testing the site before it went live, of course.
The goal of QCat — pronounced q-kat — is to assist you and your business with one of the pesky steps that is of great importance to the outcome of each project: quality control and testing. We’ll test forms, links and interactions to make sure they work as anticipated, we’ll look for visual consistency, and test to see how everything functions on multiple devices (desktop, mobile), and in a variety of browsers. Now who wouldn’t want help with that?
