QA = Quality + Assurance
Imagine you have a nice hotel and on an average you have 2.5 million hungry customers visiting daily. How would you give them the best food in terms of quality? Got the picture? Welcome to Winamp Quality Assurance team. Quality for us means catering to our user base so that they have a seamless experience with Winamp.
Winamp has almost 77 million unique visitors every month! We are very proud to say that, but there's a catch too.
Logically, millions of users roughly translates into tonnes of combination of hardwares, softwares, operating systems, browsers and above all.. user expectations!
It's indeed a top priority for us to make sure you are one happy Winamp user and we are very determined to squash each and every bug and say "Hasta la vista, baby" :)
However there may be times when we may not be able to squash all the bugs at one go. So we go head-on with the nasty ones first.
Winamp QA team is not just a bunch of bug hungry people. We have a kind heart too! :)
We would be glad if you join us in our quest of serving quality stuff to our ever growing audience - which you are already!
There are number of ways to reach us. Make use of Winamp Forums, Blog, Feed back form etc. and tell us what's your likes and dislikes.
We are commited to make Winamp the Number 1 media player.
Llama loves you.. So do we!
Happy New Year from the Winamp Team! We are so excited about the coming year and the plans we have. 2009 for us is a year of change and opportunity. We plan to add new features to both the Winamp Client and website in the coming year that will significantly improve the experience for users and will expand the tools available to developers to create custom versions and extensions of Winamp. We feel that this will be one of the most significant years of growth for the product and hope that you will follow our progress and upgrade to the newest versions with as much excitement as we will have in releasing them.
I personally have learned so much about Winamp in the last couple of months. You see... I am new to the team and my role as Executive Director is to manage the product and technical teams to bring new features and services to the Winamp community. I have worked with the team to design an aggressive roadmap that will serve our users and developers in new and better ways. I will be posting on the blog from time to time to bring you updates on the state of the roadmap and other Winamp initiatives.
One of the greatest assets of Winamp is you and the other members of the Winamp community, both users and developers alike, and we want your voice to be heard. In addition to watching the Winamp forums and comments on this blog, we have added direct feedback links to this Blog, Winamp.com, the Winamp client and dev.winamp.com. Please use them. While we may not be able to respond directly to all feedback, we DO read it all. We have already collected a lot of great ideas, keep 'em coming.
One part genius. Three parts llama. And a sprinkling of corporate AOL. That's what Winamp is all about.
