Whilst browsing reddit programming I found a blog about The Dysfunctional State of Bug Tracking
It seems to have the usual confusion between QA and QC
"QA is rarely treated as a part of the development process."
If QA isn't part of the development process then what else is there for QA to do ?
"I've been in more than a few places where most of the testers were Art School dropouts"
( any Art School droputs reading this blog ? )
Maybe the best solution is something none of us have thought of before.
I recommend to start by making QA a real part of the development process. This integrating QA and development. Allow testers to influence development and allow developers to influence the test process somewhat. Let's make code easier to test
I really shouldn't be reading stuff like this where suggesting QA really does QA and testers and devs are both involved seems like a radical notion
Happy New Year everyone
