- We’re too small to have a dedicated QA team, to pay for an external team, or have a fully-fledged testing lab. Testing is part of the build process and we use whatever devices we happen to own.
- Could we pool together our resources (old tech) to create a testing lab within Space4? We could perhaps open it out to tech companies in the area. I remember Jeremy Keith wrote about this back in 2012.
Off the back of this, I’ve been chatting to Eszter @ Animorph about what a QA process could look like with limited budgets. Testing conducted by someone external to the company and with no understanding of the project feels closer to the experience of a user. This could be done as an exchange of time/skills, rather than as a paid service, and we could formalise the process a little with grades of thoroughness, or time spent.
Just wanted to see if there was any interest in any of this!
