Craig and Andy revisit the quality assurance (QA) process, as well as talk about sales and marketing hires to add bandwidth and balance priorities.
Craig provides an update on hiring an internal QA person or external agency. The best way to QA is in the development process with unit and integration tests. Instead of hiring a person, development resources will be devoted to improving test coverage, especially for critical paths.
Craig will document and record how to test new features, then user acceptance testing will be conducted by his team on Castos’ testing site before it gets to staging. Castos has three environments: Production, Test, and Staging.
However, Andy encourages Craig to have a product owner write and communicate the specs. Also, Andy’s team is pushing for unit tests because they have none. It’s always an issue when things are released and something breaks. Better testing is one of Andy’s priorities.
