one is assurance and other is control. in my opinion, with the verbatim meaning, they are the same job.

Starting a new thread for Jerry's second question

Jerry,
Take a look at this article.

"In essence, if QC is about detecting defects, the QA is about avoiding them!" - This sentence from the article sums up the difference. However, QA is often used to mean QC or even just testing.

Jerry,
Not specifically on QA vs QC, but Software Testing & Performance magazine has many good articles. All the back issues are online. Also, qa forums is interesting to read for testing/QA type questions.

No. I am a developer, not a QA person. But I know some things about QA from talking to him.

right, if you are a professional developer, you are half good QA testing engineer. you could be a good white box test engineer if you wanna exchange the job.
