What is Shift Left Testing and Should Your Dev Team Adopt it?

Shift left testing approach is a popular technique in the QA industry. The approach was coined by Larry Smith in 2001 and has its roots in agile software development. The idea behind shift left testing is to reduce defects earlier and more often so that they are easier to fix, less costly, and less stressful on developers. This enables teams to find and resolve bugs as early as possible in the development process. It also increases the collaboration between testers and developers, but also makes identifying key aspects that need to be tested early in development a whole lot easier.
