The Art of QA Software Testing
Software testing is more than creating test plans and test cases, building test environments and running automated tests. The art of QA is in working together with software developers. Especially with agile, testers and developers are expected to work together to cooperatively build and deliver great software.
This cooperation is required because in today's marketplace, enterprises need to be able to quickly respond to change and to iterate their software to respond to that change. So development and QA teams need to work together to both design and test a feature. Before an iteration, all team members should meet to discuss exactly how a feature is going to be divided up and what is going to be tested. This means developers need to have a greater understanding of the testing process, and QA to know more about writing code.
