“You are sensing rage in my answer because I’ve spent a career surrounded by well intentioned humans who believed that it was QA’s job to file bugs, and the fact is that quality is a feature, so like it or not, everyone is in the QA department.”
Absolutely love this article. I had thrown it in my Instapaper backlog, but didn’t get to it until late last week while traveling. Everything about the article should be must-read material for all members of an software organization. Above everything else, we are in this together, and quality should be our #1 priority. Even if you aren’t in the QA department, but you find a problem, treat it as if you ARE in the QA department, and the same goes when you stumble across something from an area that is not your primary responsibility.
