EuroSTAR Poll Results – Developers as Testers

Recently we asked for your opinion on a long-standing debate in software development – do developers make good software testers? Your comments on the blog and social media have made for interesting reading. Here are the results from the poll:


The overriding belief of survey respondents is that the answer to this question depends very much on the individual in question.

Have you had your say?

Give us your views on whether or not developers make good testers – only 17% of respondents believe that developers don’t make good software testers – do you agree with them?

Do you envisage a time when the role of testers and developers merge into one or are the roles and skills of testers and developers so different that this could never happen?
