Outsourcing Testing

Andy Brice wrote an excellent post on outsourcing software testing. One line dear to my heart:

It isn’t sufficient to do all your own testing on software you wrote, no matter how hard you try.

Andy, like me, runs a one-person software company. He used two software testing companies, one in India and one in Ukraine, both of which charge $15/hour.

I’m tempted to use one of the companies Andy tried. The problem I foresee, however, is that testing Poker Copilot requires a lot of knowledge about poker and the definition of the statistics. Even trickier is that testing the Head-up Display requires playing online poker.

I’ll have to give this one some more thought.
