Issue 14 - Whose Quality Is It Anyway?

Welcome to the 14th edition of Coding Jag brought to you by LambdaTest!

According to Jerry Weinberg, “What is adequate quality to one person may be inadequate quality to another.” Truer words have never been written, especially in the context of software development. More often than not, testers find themselves at odds with developers, product managers, designers, and other project stakeholders. As the end product starts to gain recognition, quality standards get higher and product scrutiny goes deeper. Yet the questions remain-

Who owns up to those quality standards? Whose quality is it anyway?

We try to answer these very foundational questions about quality in this edition. We also talk about the best GitHub repos, automated testing, API specifications, parameterized tests, Big Data analytics tools, and much more!

Here’s a whole bunch of good reads that you need to get started on right away!
