Rachael Lovallo – Pulsara
I work at a unique company, where quality is at the core of our development process. Since we serve the emergency healthcare industry, we can’t afford bugs, as they could endanger real humans. What is our secret to maintaining high quality in a fast-paced, rapidly growing start up atmosphere where product areas are broad and include mobile, web, and a public API? Communication.
In a healthcare emergency, poor communication can literally mean death, and time cannot be wasted. In software testing, poor communication can mean a drastic decrease in both product functionality and team productivity. Effective communication across teams is key to producing quality products efficiently, and I have 4 actionable ways for individual testers to increase communication at their companies.
