Discussion on: QA Vs Developer: Whose responsibility is to do app testing?

I always try to avoid the blame game. It's poison for a team. If a bug is found on production, just fix it, get it to production, and move on.

I never expected QA to find bugs in anything I develop. I write unit tests and run through happy paths, and expected failure paths, manually.

In my mind QA should only find bugs in use cases the developer didn't think of. All previously considered use cases should be tested. We're all only human at the end of the day though. Sometimes we miss things.

Every time I get a ticket back, it's time I could be spending on something else.

I think this old quote fits nicely here:

There’s never enough time to do it right, but there’s always enough time to do it over. – Jack Bergman

I'd rather just do it right the first time.
