This talk is about beta testing in VK. How it all started and what James Bach had to do with it, how we test major updates and completely new products, our tools and platform, how to manage 12 thousand testers, handle tens of thousands of bug reports and effectively integrate beta testing into the product development process. Also, what projects require beta tests and how our beta testing platform is being used by other companies.
