Tester at the Table and the Tester in My Head

Inline Stage

About the event

The relationship between software developers and quality assurance professionals is crucial to making good products. Through 15 years of software development, Adrian P. Dunston has had opportunities to work with dedicated and talented QA professionals. And now he has a little tester in his head. So how do we build up the little testers in our heads? Based on extensive reading and years of working with and without the support of QA professionals, Adrian will show you: * How to help your QA team-members be force multipliers * How to become and encourage quality-minded developers * How to use repetition and story to get your ideas stuck your colleague's heads * How to instill habits they can use and take with them
