Programming tools 4.5: alpha users

Short rant today, but hopefully you think it’s OK.
One of the biggest advantages for any development project is testing and good, useful feedback from test/alpha users. If you want to make you development project work and end up with a good project you have to include someone who’s only job is to use the application as you develop it and give you feedback. Yes a planned testing environment and well written test plans and test scripts/applications run by the developers are required but having users who just use the application and give feedback is also a must.
I have been lucky to have a good set of these early users in my most successful development projects and rely on them.
These people are exceptionally useful for things like ui feedback, what works for them and what doesn’t.
