Microsoft said to announce job cuts as soon as this week
Engineering teams have traditionally been split between program managers, developers and testers. Yet with_ new cloud methods _of building software, it often makes sense to have the developers test and fix bugs instead of a separate team of testers, Nadella said in the interview last week. Some of the cuts will be among software testers, said one of the people.
I’m not a developer, but how does “the cloud” change the dev/test process in this way?
And as Rick Scherer pointed out this morning:
Cloud has jumped the shark, Whoopi Goldberg on The View is talking about The Cloud. I'm done, no more cloud talk for me.— Rick Scherer (@rick_scherer) July 15, 2014
(BTW, none of this has anything to do CloudShark, the product, that is actually a pretty neat way of storing and sharing packet captures.)
