Richard Seidl - Quality as an attitude 

 March 24, 2023

This podcast episode is about software quality and how to live it in the team. There are three success factors: The first is the use of the basics, i.e. the application of test levels and types, the use of test case design methods and static analyses. The second is test automation at all levels of software development. The third is quality as an attitude of the whole team, which is responsible for implementing the necessary testing activities - regardless of the role in the team.

"If you automate crap, you have crap - only faster" - Richard Seidl
