In the 1960s, IBM introduced System/360, a legendary mainframe computer built specifically to be modular and compatible with any task. The cost and time it took to build were just as legendary – around 1000 employees worked on the system for 10 years, and the initial budget of $25 million was raised to $5 billion. That situation was typical for the 60s. Programs took ages to build, companies hired excessive numbers of engineers to speed up development, but the pool of qualified programmers was limited, and soon they ended up with low-quality, bug-infested software.
What about today? Testing became more than a routine task, it deserved the title of Quality Assurance, which also covers planning, monitoring, and control. And what about the fastest growing areas in QA today?
