question mark

Often we are asked to explain what a tester does and whether someone might be a good fit for the job. It can be challenging to explain to someone without making it sound too simplistic such as a checking job or so difficult that they are intimidated. I have a series in Testing Circus to address a few questions and challenges I face as a Software Testing Manager.

Do You Think I Could be a Tester?
October issue
In this article I will address the question “do you think I could be a tester?” We need to spend time thinking about the importance of that question to determine how we respond.

The below information is in no particular order and serves as suggestions that you may build upon. I am addressing this question from a black-box functionality perspective.

How can I learn to test?
December issue

There are a lot of courses like BBST that teach black-box techniques, plus there are many bloggers sharing testing techniques. Instead of providing a list of training courses and blogs, I would like to address this question with small training exercises. I believe the best way to learn is through hands-on testing and mentoring from more senior testers. As testers we need to develop our problem-solving skills, critical thinking, and ability to ask good questions. Many testers sharpen their skills through testing challenges and games. I would like to expand upon these great opportunities to apply what you are learning to the product you test. Ideally these exercises are performed with a group of testers so you can learn from each other.
