Agile Testing: Do You Still Need QA?
Network:18

The overall software development panorama is changing, and these changes involve mostly a shift in previously blindly accepted paradigms and role delimitation. Today, the development of software, websites and apps has turned into a user-responsive framework recently called Shift Left, giving way to the establishment of cross-functional teams made up of members that specialize in different fields (code, design, architecture, script, testing) but that are exhorted to work interdependently and in a collaborative way with every other member and department.

I believe that asuring quality is a process that can not be detached from the projects, even if they are developed in agile, because within the retrospective meetings implicitly incorporates this process, or must incorporate.

Nothing change my friend. You can find the same you posted into papers from 1990 (and before) up to date. What we have to do is to understand that we must not confuse roles with people that perform the role. QA is performed into any Agile environment where you use some Agile Development Method. In fact, some methods like DSDM has the role clearly defined into it.

Implicit or explicit you need QA

Major companies like goolgle,etc are doing away with testers , they do have product engineers who takes care of development and testing...etc, it is trending slowly .......but it is a long way before it become common practice.

Testing is part of project/product/service ....there is no question on that but whether do we need have specialist for this or not is debatable

Cheap out on QA at your risk.

The one thing is guaranteed is lower software quality.
