Recent Q&A Activity

I have to prepare a presentation comparing both States: California vs Texas, and although there is tons of information about cost differences, I have not found any information about software testing price differences.  I imagine it is higher in California but is it high enough to compensate the cost differences?

Have you been measuring how many defects you find at unit testing and system testing per KLOC and how much may cost to fix them?


I can find some information like:

with code reviews + unit testing one can find up to 70% of the defects.

Other studies say that the cost of finding and fixing a defect at unit testing is $428 and at system testing is $1045.

I am interested in hearing your thoughts on how End to End testing across multiple applications could/should be managed across agile teams, where the teams are responsible for an application/system with integration with another application/system.

I'd be interested in knowing how other companies handle this from a strategic and project level.  Thanks

I am in search of an open source tool so that I can automate testing of a Windows Desktop application.

Has anyone had to write an IKM exam for a software testing job?

I am currently working on a market study to evaluate quality assurance companies. More specifically, QA companies located in San Francisco and Austin will also be useful.

Many thanks!
