#qualitymatters #perfmatters #testsmatter

In my many years of professional career, I worked in different sizes of companies from early stage 3 people startups to big enterprises that employ around 10.000 employees.

I believe that a team must bake the quality in since the very beginning. A good team acts together and yet provides independence for every member to show their unique talent and makes them feel valued.
