In 1986 the Buccaneers drafted one of the most unique athletes in history. A kid that would play professionally in two sports. His name was Bo Jackson. Companies likes to separate developers and QA into different teams because it feels like they're playing two different sports. But there's quite a bit of overlap.
The best developers can double as the best QA. You can't be a good developer without being a good QA. So be like Bo Jackson, an All-Star at two sports.
