I came across this article earlier today.
It did kind of make me think- each organisation has a different level of engagement for testers, but I’ve never heard of testers fixing bugs, unless it happens to be as part of a dev/tester pair.
Our company is currently moving towards testers being involved in the writing of test code as part of TDD, away from the pure “find a bug and pass it back to the developers to establish the details and fix the bug”, or the “find a bug, establish all the details and pass it to the developers to fix it” way we used to work. I’m familiar with the concept of test and throw it back at the developers, as well as test, find the location of the bug with as much detail as possible and get the developer to fix it, but definitely not the find it, fix it yourself approach. Is there anyone here who has been exposed to this? What are your thoughts?
