    Coding Fyx – Episode 5! (QA!!)

    Coding Fyx – Episode 5! (QA!!)

    Welcome to our 5th episode of Coding Fyx! This one is a bit less structured, slightly less informational, and more of a "hey this is what this is" with regards to QA. This topic came to light after some fairly, um, "wrong" statements from a major developer in the Video Game space, and Alex wanted to talk about QA to try and clear up what it actually means!
