Developer In Test?!

From: Barry C.
Sent on: Wednesday, February 8, 2012 3:06 PM
Hi guys,

We've been approached by a client of ours to recruit a 'Developer In Test'. This was a completely new thing to us, we did some research into exactly what the job was and it sounds like quite an interesting position for the right type of person. I found this link which was an account of Gavin Davies, a developer from Box UK explaining the details of what they'd done and what he'd found out from a developers perspective: http://www.boxuk.com/content/conBlogPost/103 (Box UK are not our client, this was just a great link that seemed to explain it well).

Gavin writes "A recent project gave Box UK the perfect opportunity to trial the increasingly popular Developer In Test role..."

I thought I'd put it out to the list to find out if many LJC members had explored a dedicated 'Developer In Test' within their team? What pro's/cons have you seen? Is this something that you guys feel may start trending? Would you recommend it? Has anyone made the full time switch from being a developer to a developer in test? Would anyone want to? 

Also if there is a group of people within the LJC that would be interested in learning more or attending an event on the subject let me know? Would it be worth us organising an event specifically? If there is enough support we may be able to get something going. Let me know.

Any thoughts you have please write to me directly at [address removed] or share with the mailing list by replying.

Thanks,
Barry
