What is a customer worth at the end of the day?
Surprisingly QA is the most overlooked function I’ve seen with small tech teams.
It’s not their fault…
They’ve just got limited resources and they’ve also got to move the needle.
Seb articulates a great strategy to foster a TDD driven culture, workflow and set of tools within a small tech team.
Even if you’ve got limited resources
You can still work towards building a stable app
Build reporting so you can quickly resolve bugs/issues
Overall, build a better expereince for your customer.
It’s safe to say that I had an absolute ball speaking to Seb about his journey and dissecting key insights.
