Self-Testing by Developers. The Hot Potato To Cool Down

Hello! Welcome to the very first edition of CodingJag by LambdaTest. A curated newsletter to help you with weekly updates on latest news, best tips and stories around the testing world. Well, the interesting story for this week is about the relationship between developers and testers! Absolutely loved Sergiu’s perspective on “how developers see testers” and the importance of organizational culture that moulds this interdependence relationship.
