The short script used during the session to run the QA toolset is available here:

The speaker disclosed upfront that this was a work in progress, so I'm grading it on a curve somewhat. I definitely would be interested in the more developed product. All the same, I still took some useful information from this. I'll be leveraging some of the tools for quality analysis that were presented.
