In a perfect world you have full-time developers the do the developing and testing themselves. They write the damn code, they should know best, what they changed, when they changed it, what this could affect and thus are the most efficient testers. Dependent on what software is being developed, you will also employ testers. They do not necessarily be programmers (sic!) and also a lot cheaper then those but represent the user. Professional testers do exist. In a perfect world you have full-time developers the do the developing and testing themselves.

-To develop a computer game, you need a lot of good professional testers. (Currently many [[http://friv.5ire.com/|friv]] games developing companies have switched to a procedure called public beta testing. To save on money and also for publicity.) For a office program you need less testers and for a software like OpenWrt, which is in fact an OS, even less, and different, though it's still good to have some. In this perfect world, both, developer and tester are happily employed and do talk to each other as often as needed.+To develop a computer game, you need a lot of good professional testers.
