Testers are from Mars and Developers are from Venus
We all know that Testers and Developers are two sides of the same coin. That coin is called "The Product", and in theory everybody is working towards a common goal. I don't know which side you are on, but have you ever felt that there are some disagreements at times, and the more the product needs to be improved, the more these disagreements arise?
In this era, where no compromise is possible on the speed of execution or the quality of the product, can these two teams work without conflict and in tandem? Will it be possible to find the right balance, so that they can combine forces and help their product to achieve escape velocity?
I've been working for more than 8 years as a tester, and in this talk, I really wanted to share with the community some real-life examples
which we implemented to ensure a healthy and productive collaboration between these two teams. Not all ideas succeeded, but then that is exactly why we need to have this talk.
