Both manually and automatically. Before we had automated tests on https://automatio.co, I did all of them manually. And every time we released something new, it was a lot of work to go through and check if something was broken. Now we have around ~300 automated tests, but still, manual work is needed for some things to be sure nothing is broken. Especially on a complex project like Automatio.

@youssif_maxzoom I would like, but I am not sure if I am competent for that. I am not developer myself, just a visionary.

At SigmaOS, since we are a browser, we are all constantly using the product and doing QA. QA is much easy when you’re your own biggest user! We also have a slack where users can give us feedback/report bugs and we rely on that a lot.

@pablo_fatas Everyone should be QA this is not a job for few people. When you push new code, how do you verify it didn't break something else?

@youssif_maxzoom i mean you don’t have a lot of people at a startup. When you’re a team of 4 you cannot have many people doing QA. Devs do QA while building obviously and make sure nothing is majorly wrong. But we push patches all the time and if anything big comes up, fix it in the hour. If something really went wrong you can always revert to a previous version.
