Although this may seem like a radical change, I’ll explain some of the reasons behind our decision, and why this represents a major leap forward. I’ll also share some examples and answer a question that is likely on many readers’ minds: “what about MEL?”

He said, “Part of me refuses to believe that everybody is just going to sit at home and everything is going to be brought to their doorstep and nobody is ever going to leave home to do anything again.”

Oh dear.

They partner and collaborate with front- and back-end engineers across teams in order to improve our testing processes.
