what makes a good tester
What makes a good tester?
  • Personal experience in many aspects of technology
  • The ability to understand the end users’ needs
  • Stamina: The ability to always try “one more regression”
  • The feeling that there is always a “better” way to do things

Testing Software and Hardware should be fun!

testing is not programming

  • Testing requires an ability to “do the unexpected”
  • Many testers “fall into testing rather than choosing the field”
  • There is much more to a program than the basic functions. It is necessary to test beyond the obvious

  • Academic training teaches a person to check for “does it work this way?”, But it does not teach “should it work this way?”
  • It is common for people with “Development Skills” to use testing only as a way to move to a development career

Testing Software and Hardware should be fun!

real life

  • To find obscure bugs, it is necessary to have a wide exposure to different equipment and software
  • The tester’s desire is to find problems before it gets to the customer
  • The QA engineer’s desire is to make sure the software is written properly in the first place.
