- People who joined us as "testing specialists" are no longer testing specialists but specialists of everything software.
- We value good testing and good people with good testing skills, but we see no need of having testers or testing specialists.
This is a recurring discussion that makes me sad, and often makes me feel like I want to quit the IT industry.
This "we're all developers", "we don't let people identify as testers" discussion is a lot like the discussions on gender. Be it "guys" or "men", the women are supposed to feel included because "naturally these words include all people".
