As is typical, industry news is filled with contradictions.
Take for example this piece the other day: Developers: These botched software rollouts are costing businesses billions – TechRepublic
Sounds about right to me.
But now check out this: Think your developers are moving too slowly? This is probably what's holding them back – TechRepublic
With this delightful quote:
Developers aren't launching new code quickly enough – and blame burdensome testing and quality assurance processes for holding them back.
Oh dear, those “burdensome testing and quality assurance processes”. How awful for you!
Here’s a clue: quality is a feature. And many of your users would prefer quality. So stop whining that you don’t get to work on fun new features and instead focus on building better, less buggy code.
