QA Principles

The main objective of QA is to continuously improve development and testing processes in order to reduce the chance of defects arising during the software development life cycle.

  • Quality is everyone's responsibility. The best results happen when everyone, regardless of role, collaborates closely with a joint objective of delivering high value software.

  • Plan to succeed. When a team is aligned and in agreement with a test plan it adds clarity to the testing process and everyone's role and responsibility within it.

  • Prevention > Reaction. Test early and often in the life cycle and be thorough on pull requests. It's always better to find an issue before it is merged to the repository.

  • Be exploratory and creative. Consider the different scenarios by which people could be interacting with our software. Test across multiple devices / browsers / resolutions / networks / environments / wallet extensions.
