testing Questions

 

Hey Testing Community! 

Our QA team is currently exploring new tools for performance testing and PerfDog has caught our attention. They support Android, iOS, and Web platforms, also seems to integrate well with CI/CD pipelines.

We're now considering switching to PerfDog, but before we make a decision, we'd love to hear from anyone who has used it. Could you share your experiences, the pros and cons, and how it stacks up against other popular tools like JMeter?

Thanks in advance for your insights!

I do quality assurance lead work on medium scale ERP implementation projects, relatively complex and 1-2 years long.  Most of what I do is helping clients create their testing strategy, plan test events, gather results, train and manage testers, etc... I do very little actual testing.  I've taken some courses on quality assurance (for example, ISTQB), however I find most of the information is specific to greenfield software development; I struggle to find anything specific to ERP implementations, which are a different animal entirely.  There are some concept similarities, but I've had to build my own system for what I do.

I'm always keen to sharpen my skills, but the well is pretty dry here.  Am I alone in this?  Is anyone else looking for this type of information?  I can find a few blogs here and there, but nothing substantive.

Numerous standard features, such as Login, Logout, and Forgot Password, have matured to a common level. If we could create test cases for these features in a template-like format, it could significantly streamline testing efforts for both testers and companies. Similar to selling prints on Etsy or brushes on Gumroad, this template-based approach might find a place on a dedicated platform.

I'm curious if such a service already exists on any platform and whether there is a demand for it. Your insights are appreciated!

Hello, everyone!

 

I've been working as a manual tester for over 3 years now, and I've encountered various challenges along the way. One of the most critical aspects that I feel often gets overlooked is developing a robust test plan. While Automated Testing gets much attention, especially in discussions about CI/CD pipelines, I believe that manual testing still plays an essential role in software development, especially for testing usability, exploring edge cases, and ensuring the quality of the final product.

 

I wanted to create a forum topic that delves into the intricate world of Manual Testing. Specifically, how do you go about creating a comprehensive test plan?

 

Here are some questions I have in mind:

 

Scope Definition: How do you define the scope of your manual testing? Do you strictly adhere to specifications and requirements, or do you also explore the application beyond that?

 

Test Case Design: What methodologies do you use for designing your test cases? Do you follow traditional methods like boundary value analysis, equivalence partitioning, etc., or do you also include exploratory testing techniques?

 

Test Environment: How do you set up your test environment? Are there any particular tools that you find helpful in manual testing for configuring the environment or managing test data?

 

Reporting: What strategies do you follow for bug tracking and reporting? How detailed are your bug reports, and what elements do you think are essential to include?

 

Collaboration: How do you collaborate with developers and other stakeholders during the testing phase? Do you have any tips for effective communication to ensure that bugs are understood and fixed promptly?

 

Test Plan Review: How often do you update your test plan, and what triggers an update? Is it an iterative process for you?

 

Time Management: Manual Testing can be time-consuming. How do you manage your time effectively to ensure you cover all the necessary test cases?

 

I think these points can be a good starting point for a comprehensive discussion on how to optimize the manual testing process and create a well-rounded test plan.

 

Looking forward to hearing from you all!

Hi guys, looking for quality education for manual testing (QA), but I don't want to learn in groups of more than 20 to 30 people

Please list the Pros and Cons of manual testing.

Hello everyone,

I am a software tester who wants to develop my abilities and stay current with software testing trends. I discovered stickyminds.com and was amazed by the variety of papers, seminars, and podcasts about software testing that it provides.

I'd want to hear from other software testers who have used stickyminds.com to hone their craft. Which resources were the most beneficial to you? What topics would you suggest for someone who wants to stay current on software testing? Did you attend any of stickyminds.com's webinars or virtual conferences? If so, which ones did you find most useful?

I'd also welcome any tips on how to make the most of stickyminds.com. Should I concentrate on certain areas or topics? Are there any hidden treasures I should look into? Finally, I'd want to hear if you have any recommendations for any similar websites or resources.

Thank you in advance for your assistance and counsel. 

Hello all,I'm preparing for a manual testing interview and I'm having some trouble figuring out how to answer some of the questions. I'm especially stuck on a particular question involving writing code. I referred to this resource. The question is:

"Write a program that takes an integer as an input and prints the sum of all the digits in the input number."I've tried this code, but it doesn't seem to be working:int number, sum = 0;court << "Enter an integer: ";
in >> number;

while (number != 0)
{
sum += (number % 10);
number /= 10;
}

court << "The sum of the digits is: " << sum << endl;

Can anyone help me figure out what I'm doing wrong? Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
