Stuff I learned: You gotta have QC!

A while ago I made my first call to a potential client, responding on an ad I saw on LinkedIn. The conversation pretty much went like this. You gotta have QC! I didn’t get the gig. I have different opinions about HP Quality Center, and I think most of the bad ones comes from experiencing this scenario in many places. Somehow, the testers in a project just gotta have and use this tool, even though no one else in the project uses it. I’ve been places where the testers had to create and update defects in QC, and then right afterwards, do the same thing in the project’s own system that the developers and project managers used as well. Usually something went wrong, and someone forgot to update the defect in one system or another. There’s gotta be a more efficient way…
