Feedback form is now closed.
In the beginning, there was development and QE, working in their separate silos, and silently cursing each other as each new bug was found. Fast-forward to present day, where practices like Agile and DevOps are encouraging the once disparate teams to work together towards the same goal: software quality.

I'll discuss some of the historical problems that plagued the model of having separate development and QE teams and talk about how these problems can be alleviated in a forged team that has dev and QE working together.

I will cover how involving QE at each stage of the development process can improve the quality of your software and the effectiveness of your team.
