In this presentation originally shared at the London #TestGathering on 20th March, The App Business' QA Manager Christina Ohanian shares her view on the need to embed testing at the very earliest stages of software development.

Christina focuses not on tools, but the need for better communication, commitment and the understanding that in software development, conversations with the right people will save you.
