The agile development movement is making testers shift their tests to the left. From a practical perspective, this means that the testers are getting closer to the frontend developers, and the testers’ automated tests need to be integrated with the developers’ tests (I discussed this in considerable length here, if you’re interested).
This is interesting. The shift-left movement now ties together the tester’s tests and the developer’s tests. This begs the question — should the tests be written in the same language?
I will try to convince you that answering yes to that question has many benefits to both sides.
