Hate QA
Take a little test to make sure once again that you don't need anything from QA
Don’t need anything
Question as a warm-up: who should test?
And like not their own, too. But still... no. Testers evaluate the product from the point of view of the end-user, who has no idea how the program works, taking into account differences in behavior. Developers thoroughly know the architecture of the code, so it is more difficult for them to put themselves in the user's shoes.
Oh, man... that's brutal) Many companies carry out tests on their own. How good are they doing this? Testing should be carried out by specialists with wide user experience, who understand the functionality and business logic of the product — i.e. testers. From this perspective, the product will have high-quality and will be user-friendly.
That's a good criterion! But it's not enough. Testing should be carried out by specialists with wide user experience, who understand the functionality and business logic of the product — i.e. testers. In this case, the product will have high-quality and will be user-friendly.
Fire! It's perfect just as it is. The testing team monitors the quality of the product from the point of view of wide user experience, based on the business logic of the product. This is something that developers will not be able to take into account when testing themselves.

The next question will be more complicated: do testers only test and check products for bugs?
I don't think so, but I'm not quite sure. Are you ready? Okay, so take this: testers are not only looking for bugs. They monitor all aspects of product quality, not only in terms of its functionality: they also check if it is convenient for the user; what can be done to improve it.
It happens... I's just because you have wrong testers. Pour some more - we'll tell you everything. True testers are guys who monitor all aspects of the quality of a manufactured product, not only in terms of its functionality: they also check if it is convenient for the user; what can be done to improve it.
Yeah, that's right! I look towards you! Sure, the testers check the product for bugs, but this is only a part of their job. They monitor all aspects of the quality of the product, not only in terms of its functionality: they also check if it is convenient for the user; what can be done to improve it.
Seriously, you'd better have a drink! These things happen... Although an experienced tester finds bugs very well and fights for the quality till his last breath. In one word, a terrible person :) Of course, the tester's work doesn't end with the search for bugs. His responsibilities include monitoring of all aspects of the quality of the product, not only in terms of its functionality.

It seems that you are still a little bit interested in testing: how many testers do you need in your team?
Close enough. Although... no, not quite. There is no formula that could accurately determine how many testers are needed to feel happy. It all depends on the complexity of the project, update rate, and timing.
Not bad! But the whole person is much better. To be honest, even we do not know exactly how much of them are needed. Because there is no formula that could accurately determine how many testers are needed to feel happy. It all depends on the complexity of the project, update rate, and timing.
Okay, okay. But let us tell you something in confidence, who knows, maybe it will be helpful for you. So, the truth is that there is no formula that could accurately determine how many testers are needed to feel happy. It all depends on the complexity of the project, update rate, and timing.
Well, you are making me happy today! High five! There is no formula that could accurately determine how many testers are needed to feel happy. It all depends on the complexity of the project, update rate, and timing

When should the tester be involved in the project?
Or look through a horoscope for answers. Perhaps now will be a shock-content. The sooner you involve the tester in the project, the deeper his understanding of the product will be. In the initial stages, the tester helps to avoid errors or suggests changes in the functionality if the development of the product has taken the wrong turn: something will be inconvenient to the user or goes against the business logic of the product.
Well, I don't know what to do with you) We will just tell you — maybe it will be helpful for you. The sooner you involve the tester in the project, the deeper his understanding of the product will be. In the initial stages, the tester helps to avoid errors or suggests changes in the functionality if the development of the product has taken the wrong turn: something will be inconvenient to the user or goes against the business logic of the product.
We heard that too) And that's right. The sooner you involve the tester in the project, the deeper his understanding of the product will be. In the initial stages, the tester helps to avoid errors or suggests changes in the functionality if the development of the product has taken the wrong turn: something will be inconvenient to the user or goes against the business logic of the product.
Independence is our everything! Ideally, the tester must be involved in the development of the product from the very beginning. In the initial stages, the tester helps to avoid errors or suggests changes in the functionality if the development of the product has taken the wrong turn: something will be inconvenient to the user or goes against the business logic of the product.

Do you still want to test? Ask otherwise: is the testing expensive?
Don't be so serious, get real! :) Hold on tight, we'll continue. Negative feedback, support services, correcting errors in the finished product — all this comes out much more expensive than the pre-budgeted testing. You pay money not only for error finding but also for comprehensive quality assurance of the product and expert suggestions for its improvement.
Yes, but not for long. You know the current prices, right? But seriously, the cost of quality testing, embedded in the development from the very beginning, is more profitable and cheaper than correct errors in the already finished product. Experienced testers ensure the quality of the product and offer recommendations for its improvement so that it is convenient for the user — this is exactly what you are paying for.
God bless you! We often come across the opinion that testing is an expensive procedure. You see, high-quality testing helps the business to earn more, get good feedback, and surpass the rival products. Testing pays off many more times. It is expensive to correct errors in the finished product. Even more expensive are the customers who have left forever.
We would like to, but we can't. On the other hand... no, we definitely can't. Just testing. What do we have to pay testers for? You pay for the product to have a high-quality and for it to be a user-friendly product, so the support service wouldn't have to burn in hell. Negative feedback and correcting errors in the finished product are much more expensive for the business.

Is it a problem to hire the test outsourcing team for the project?
An experienced test outsourcing team will not only quickly start the project, but will also help to pack your suitcases for your vacation. Weeell, we're not quite sure about the second item. But we know for sure that the outsourcing team quickly adapts, knows how to have a flair with the product development, and integrate into the work process. And this is more profitable and faster than the expansion and search for regular testers.
Your answer is music to our ears! Right. The outsourcing team is guys with powerful soft skills who have long experience in the sphere of work with various projects and a wide product outlook. They quickly adapt, know how to have a flair with the product development, and integrate into the work process. And this is more profitable and faster than the expansion and search for regular testers.
Nuuuh... For example, we have all the legs. Outsourcing test teams develop soft skills — they know how to arguably prove their point of view and how to have a flair with the development team in order to achieve better quality for the product.
Give our best regards to him! If you want to improve your product, you need to improve your quality support. Outsourcing test team quickly adapts and built into the processes of interaction with the development team and full-time testers. This is more profitable, faster and more efficient than hire more full-time testers.

We are almost sure that you don't need any of that, so let us fix the result: can test teams configure work processes?
A bug fairy :) Why are you asking these questions? Testers, of course. As a rule, the test team has a team lead or a quality director who is involved in the configuration of work processes between teams. Weak processes between individual teams affect all work, product, and user loyalty.
YEEEAH! Keep it going! Quality assurance is a set of works in which it is important to configure work processes between teams and within a team. Each professional testing team has a team lead and a quality director. These guys configure work processes. Weak processes or lack thereof affect product quality sometimes worse than missed bugs.
We never tried, but who knows... Maybe it's better to buy activated carbon? Now back to business. Each testing team has a team lead and quality director. These guys configure work processes. Weak processes between individual teams affect all work, product, and user loyalty.
Now, that hurts. We are testers who know a lot of things and know what to do :) In the professional testing team, there is a team lead and quality director who are engaged in the configuration of work processes in the team and between teams. This is an important part of quality assurance. Weak work processes between individual teams negatively affect the quality of the entire product.

Wow! Are you still here? Now the control question: is this testing about IT or about business?
So we had a good conversation... The testing is needed not so much for a development but for a business. It's not enough to come up with an idea, conduct analytics, or assemble a team. It is important to consider whether the functionality will be convenient for all segments of the target audience; is it possible to improve something; why competitors have a better or worse product. All these nuances have a great impact on the business. They cannot be ignored.
But someone shall be required to test them :) The testing is needed not so much for a development but for a business. It's not enough to release an interesting product right now. So as to be in demand, it must have a better user experience than competing products. For this, it is important to take into account many nuances: will all target audience segments be comfortable with the functionality; is it possible to improve something, etc.
Ahh, my man. In recent years, the testing has become deeply integrated into the business. The evolution of user expectations has led to the creation of new product solutions and the improvement of user experience. This requires an understanding of the user logic and the business logic of the product. This is what testers work with.
Yes, ten more questions and that's enough) Or not ... No need for that now. The testing is needed not so much for a development but for a business. Recently, user expectations have changed a lot - they have become more particular about quality. To do this, it is important to understand whether the functionality will be convenient for all segments of the target audience; is it possible to improve something, etc.

Ooh... Your tester hater is in the red. We are nearly burning in Hell. Judging by the answers, you do not quite understand why testers are needed, and also what it is - the quality assurance. Or the testers just piss you off. Or maybe all at once :) But something tells us (for example, experience) that if you learn more about the QA, it will improve work on the product and increase business targets. Don't believe me? You should try it! Apparently, our salesmanship stops here. But we know how to test. This is how we can be useful :)

Okey! Your tester hater is on the zero milestone. You seem to understand who testers are, why they are needed. But it seems that's not completely. We don't know how to determine this. We are not psychoanalysts, we are going to test. Perhaps, if you dive a little more into the work of testers and how they can be useful for the business, you can solve painful problems with the quality of the product. Unfortunately, we don't have sales managers to haunt you. We have testers and a large QA background. This is how we can be useful :)

Wow! The tester hater is in normal position! You seem to be in touch with testing. That's comforting. We would invite you to drink to this! It is probably pointless to tell you about the QA's importance and persuade you to buy our services, you already know it all. Yes, sales are not our strong point :) But we are good at testing and QA. This is how we can be useful.
