Becoming a developer, who is less disturbed by a tester ( in 3 pages)

Some articles might have made us go crazy about it. For an author, it is a very different experience when the article he is writing makes him go crazy. This article, is one such that excited me and got me more excited when I shrunk first half of the name of article using first letters of the words and leaving the rest to form ...

Pass it on to your developers! [ It's important for them to know this information ]

Well, nice going, good advice for the developers.

I only wish they read this and also apply it, so we will get rid of situations like:
developer - "I fixed the bug - please validate and close".
tester - Start verifying the fix, it works on IE, go to FF, the feature does not work anymore (it worked before the "fix").

I experienced this kind of issues (and still experience them from time to time). The good thing is that after each issue like this, the developers check better the fix before sending it to me :) (this is because I am lucky to work with good developers :) ).

Anyway, useful information for any developer and tester.

Good luck,

Thanks for your comment!

What surprises me is, many testers thought this post of mine isn't for them :-)

Such a lovely post, urging the developer to step a little higher and awakening the tester to dig a little deeper !
