Agile Testing – Programmer perspective

December 28, 2012 3 comments

I meet programmers everywhere I go, it kind of goes with the job as tester. They are of very different caliber and mindsets, so just as with my other posts in the series, I will generalize alot. There are many good programmers out there, and many of the people I have worked with really care about these things, just sayin.
