Collaboration between testers and programmers is a transformative factor in software development.
👉 minimizes the back-and-forth of bug tracking,
👉 reducing confusion about bug versus feature, and
👉 focuses on delivering customer-oriented software.
Early collaboration is key.
Testers can assist in creating and automating acceptance tests in domain-specific language.
This approach, known as Acceptance Test-Driven Development (ATDD), enables programmers to write fixtures for these tests and code accordingly.
Consequently, functional tests are completed early, freeing up time for comprehensive exploratory testing.

Testers can take a proactive role by sharing testing ideas before coding begins.
Programmers' insights often improve test coverage and prevent defects by clarifying initial concepts.
Programmers can also contribute to test automation success by leveraging their coding expertise to help testers establish robust test suites.
This collaboration ensures that automation projects are not hindered by poorly designed tests or technical limitations, ultimately leading to higher-quality code.

Testers have to stop thinking testers job is to find bug in programmers' code.
Programmers have to stop thinking that testers are "out to get them".
Software quality is teamwork matter.
