Session: What Testers and Developers Can Learn From Each Other

What is the role of the tester in an agile team? How many testers do we need? What does a team gain from having professional testers? Perhaps there is another way to approach these questions.
Testers and developers can learn a number of specific lessons about their craft by taking from the experiences of the other group.
