Presentation title: Developers Are from Mars, Testers Are from Venus. How Can We Help Them Find the Common Ground?

Abstract:
Developers and testers – arch enemies or allies? Theoretically, they should be united by the same goal -> providing the client with high quality, well-working application. Despite this, in many teams we could be mistaken and get the impression that both groups fight in a war against each other. What is the reason? How can we effectively manage teams of developers and testers? One way to improve the situation is to use popular technique – simulation game. During the game, participants have the opportunity to learn about “beauty” of the work of the “opposite camp” , which helps them to find ways of new, more effective communication.
