There is often talk about how to acknowledge and reward for performance on teams.  I've always wondered, how you would identify and acknowledge the contributions specifically of testers on your team, as opposed to the developers or managers who may lead teams.

Most documentation that I have located to date only cover defect types and triggers for in process software development, I'm looking for a list of Triggers typically used to classify pose release defects.

For example: A company has claimed that they have created a pen that can write upto 45 kms, how a tester can test this pen that it is correct and pen can write up to 45kms. What kind of test cases will be required.

I'm assign to introduce testing to organisation that don't know anything regarding testing. I would like to have tips or material that i can use as a start to have their buy in.

My education background is biotechnology and MBA-Marketing from India , i am new to the UK.

We are conducting a walk-in recruitment drive for manual testing professionals in our organization. For judging the aptitude of the candidate as regards to testing awareness, I require any sample web-based application (preferably open source). The aim is to make the candidate test the application and see how many bugs he/she can detect. This will show how sharp the candidate is as regards to testing and will also determine his/her oral and written communication skills.

If anybody knows about any such application, please contact me.

Thanks in advance.


I have changing requirements based on feedback from different stakeholders during development cycle quiet often. this leads to workflow change in the software. suggest efficient ways to identify the impacted test cases due to work flow change and any tools that will help.

note: tracebility doesn't help much because it just provides the direct impact on certain requirement and it's corresponding test cases but it doesnt provide other impacted requirements and test cases which has to flow through the changed workflow.

Very few people have an education specialization in software testing. Most of us arrived from a different path. What classes, specializations or skills did you learn that you find most useful as a tester?
