We use Team Foundation Server for development and testing. Our Director has told our scrum master to go to 1-week sprints AND remove testing tasks from the product backlog to change the definition of "Done". We could use a suggestion on how to ensure we get testing tasks assigned, and track their progress, when our only tools are TFS and Google Docs. Having been forced to use Google Docs to track testing in the past, I expect issues trying to share -- for instance -- a spreadsheet to do this. Tasks could be forgotten or missed. Updates may go uncommunicated.

I am interested in the others' take on visual testing alongside funtional testing with tools like Applitools?

Hi, my name is Alex. I am a signor tech-support specialist with 16 + years of experience supporting web application.

Want to switch gears from tech support to QA / Testing, but don’t know how to approach the task. Would appreciate the help. Basically need to understand how to start and which software / application - automation to learn to start with?

I have a total experience of 6 years in ETL/DATABASE testing. As of now I don't have any certifications. Which certifications will be suitable for me for my better career growth and my own development of skill set.

‘Is there a need for the Testers be technical?’ is a frequently asked question and we have been hearing more of this question only since the last decade. This is because more and more organizations and companies today are considering to adopt ‘Agile’ approach to their processes. All the people and teams in organizations who are getting used to ‘Agile Methodology’ agree that testers need to do more than testing and not testing.

Previous conferences of Star West and the agile methodology in general have accepted the concept that testers and programmers are both subsets of the developer category. Is this still the accepted definition or are programmers the only team members that are considered developers.
