Contents

An important topic in software development is the quality of software. Typical quality criteria are correctness, robustness, changeability, reusability and user-friendliness of software. We take look at various techniques such as software metrics, development guidelines, refactoring, design patterns, and testing concepts, to examine and improve the software from a syntactic and semantic point of view.
