Jun 12, 2024 Season 1 Episode 7
Vista Social

Get a glimpse of the Vista Social tech DNA! In this episode of ⁠Beyond Social⁠, we explore tech testing environments and the software development lifecycle. Do we always need multi-staged testing processes? While verifying, prototyping, and user feedback are crucial for quality, they can be time-consuming and expensive. 

We discuss how smaller organizations can streamline processes and bypass certain stages to deliver value faster to customers. Copying big company practices might backfire, so it's essential to find what works best for your team. Clear guidelines, vision, and trust are key to efficiency, and that’s what we’re made of!

Learn how hiring thoughtful, careful team members can simplify the path from code inception to release, and how to identify and eliminate redundancies in your workflow. Tune in for actionable insights on optimizing your tech testing environments and speeding up your software development process. Happy listening as we nerd out!
