2. Give pointers to help move the relationships more towards synergy and mutual benefit
This talk is paired with The Psychology of Testing as part of a conversation track on Head Hacking.
It is a strange dance that testers are locked into – for as long as there have been developers (and not just of code) there have been testers, however sometimes that relationship is not as equal as it should be! If you find that you have a tendency to do more than your fair share (‘over the fence’ syndrome), if you keep quiet to avoid arguments, if you find it difficult to stand up for your views and be a respected member of the team then you may find this talk useful.
This short presentation looks at the relationship between testers and developers from a psychological point of view and hopes to help move that relationship towards synergy and harmony.
