Many companies develop software using agile methodologies, enabling teams to work fast to deliver value. To ensure the product meets the requirements of each iteration, the team runs tests, designing them for automation where possible.

We'll look into what it's like to work in the software development industry, explore common practices, and learn the methods used for software quality assurance.
