QA role has been underestimated for decades in the software development world. Of course, no mystification is needed, but QA work became more complex in terms of structure, levels of testing, QA people involvement and required knowledge and skills. On the technical side, there is a complete range of skills you might need to do a QA job. Also, QA job is not a single “clicking” job, but you have a whole set of different tasks and skills which might be required from QA employee. For me, even more important, most of the time, QA people are the ones with the most extensive knowledge of the business domain and the application developed. You will hear about how to structure the teams and organize QA people to improve the quality of your applications and deliver high-quality software, the right stuff and for the right people.
