Demand for QA will soon explode

Demand for QA will soon explode?

Demand for QA will soon explode.

The flood of AI-generated code will require rigorous testing and validation.

And QA is the obvious choice for that. Here’s what to expect:

🔵 𝗜𝗻𝗰𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗲𝗱 𝗲𝗺𝗽𝗵𝗮𝘀𝗶𝘀 𝗼𝗻 𝗤𝗔

As code creation becomes abundant, ensuring the correctness of behaviour becomes even more crucial.

As a result, QA is likely to become a more important aspect of the software development process.

🟣 𝗜𝗻𝗻𝗼𝘃𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗶𝗻 𝗤𝗔 𝗺𝗲𝘁𝗵𝗼𝗱𝗼𝗹𝗼𝗴𝗶𝗲𝘀

QA methodologies will need to adapt to the new landscape created by AI-generated code.

This may involve the development of new testing frameworks or strategies designed specifically for AI-generated code.

Testing tools will themselves become AI-powered, and oversight of them will need to be incorporated into the QA process.

🟡 𝗦𝗵𝗶𝗳𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗤𝗔 𝗿𝗼𝗹𝗲𝘀 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗽𝗼𝗻𝘀𝗶𝗯𝗶𝗹𝗶𝘁𝗶𝗲𝘀

As AI-generated code becomes more prevalent, the role of QA professionals may shift to higher-level responsibilities.

Monitoring and validating go-live gating, assessing the reliability and security of AI-generated code, and ensuring compliance.

🟠 𝗦𝗼𝗳𝘁𝘄𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗱𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗹𝗼𝗽𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗯𝗹𝘂𝗿𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗼 𝘀𝗽𝗲𝗰𝗶𝗳𝗶𝗰𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝘄𝗿𝗶𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴

Software development will become less about writing code and more about defining expected behaviour.

The gatekeepers will be those who can express behaviour in a language that can be formally validated.

BDD anyone?

🟢 𝗘𝗺𝗽𝗵𝗮𝘀𝗶𝘀 𝗼𝗻 𝘀𝗼𝗳𝘁 𝘀𝗸𝗶𝗹𝗹𝘀

As most code-related tasks become orders of magnitude faster, engineers will need to improve their soft skills, such as communication, collaboration and adaptability.

The ability to work effectively with people will become a key differentiator.

For some time to come, we’ll still want an expert eye to validate things before they go live. Especially in regulated sectors and non-trivial products.

QA will very quickly become the bottleneck, and that will drive demand.

And engineers in the test will be the new innovators 🧑‍🚀
