Session Name BioWare QA - Partners in Development (Embed Model)
Speaker(s) Arone Le Bray, Tulay Tetiker McNally
Company Name(s) BioWare, BioWare
Track / Format QA Summit
Overview This presentation will explore the working relationship between BioWare QA and the BioWare development team. We will explore the challenges encountered while implementing the integrated QA model, and the pros and cons that have resulted from the embedded QA model. ?The session will conclude with a specific case study describing how the embedded model at BioWare applies to the narrative creation process (VO, Writing, Cinematics) on Mass Effect 3 and how QA was able to find issues early on. This made it easier to avoid costly changes in content at later stages of development, and ultimately provided the end user with a better experience.
