Bridging the Gap with Developers Might Be Easier Than You Think
Too often, technology teams are still operating with a barrier between the development and testing personnel. These teams should have the same mission: high-quality software that meets business objectives and is delivered on time, within budget. These barriers frequently seem insurmountable, but the reality may be that bringing developers and testers together is as simple as starting a conversation, sharing both the challenges they are striving to overcome and the victories they seek. Stephan Marceau will share the data and outcomes he has consolidated by observing more than 50 projects in the last year, where collocation, shared responsibility, and open channels of feedback have all helped to yield teams that perform at a high level while enjoying their work.
