Qualities of Quality - Spotify Labs

“Implementation quality doesn’t affect the end user experience, but it impacts the productivity of the teams working on improving the end user experience.”

“Poor implementation quality kills your ability to add features and evolve your product and therefore makes poor product quality a much more serious problem. Poor implementation quality becomes an obstacle to changing your product, and changing the product quickly is key to getting it right.”

“The short of it is that unfixed bugs in your code lead to additional meetings, bug management overhead, duplicate reports of the same bug and context switching. So a lot of the time, the best thing you can do for your own productivity is to just fix pretty much everything that’s ever reported. That that also leads to a better end user experience is a nice bonus.”
