The Little Book of Website Quality Control
Released: October 2016
Why bother with quality control when building a website? Simple. Quality control (QC) helps you determine whether your site meets your own expectations and, more important, whether it meets professional best practices. Without QC, you have no way of telling whether your site is any good prior to unleashing it upon the world. QC can save you time, money, and a lot of anxiety.
This short book covers QC for several website aspects—such as security, functionality, and code quality—and provides links to many useful tools that can help you in each of these areas.
