Are Testers Really Needed in Agile Teams?

Quite a few Agile teams believe that you don’t need testers to deliver working software. Testers are looked upon as a relic from the waterfall days (requirements, design, code, then pass off to test). On XP teams, everyone is a developer, and developers are responsible and accountable for testing their own code, writing automated unit tests and then automating the acceptance tests that the Customer has defined. Scrum doesn’t explain how testing is done at all – the team will find a way to figure it out as they “inspect and adapt” themselves towards good practices.
