Why do best practices in software development matter? What are those practices in the first place? This video presents 10 key best practices for quality software development, explains why they are important to how you develop software, and shows how each practice relates to each other and the big picture of software development. You’ll learn how to set software development goals and metrics, how to determine if your software is "done", and more in this theory and practice course that uses running software examples to illustrate how these best practices are deployed in real life.
