I have joined to some webinars from Test Masters Online, not sure if you heard about them, but this one really called my attention. The title looks a bit extreme, but you will see that is more about how testers and developers can work together to improve the quality of the team. The ideal is to have specialised QAs that can teach developers about automation, performance, security tests and so on. It is more about giving awareness about tests when developing.
The challenge nowadays is changing the developers mindset to contribute along with QAs with the automation tests and also getting support from the managers (which is something that I’ve always highlighted). If you want a team without a bottleneck and where everybody is max contributing for the quality and speed of the deliveries, then yes you need to think about a team sharing all the responsabilities and having a specilised person to guide and teach.
Basically you will see how Joel Montvelisky discusses the issues which prevents software developers to test, and what testers can do to change that.
Thank you !! See you in the next post 🙂
