Testing Education - Luxury or Necessity?

"Testing Education - Luxury or Necessity"

 

One would not think this was a question that required an answer except to say that it is a necessity.  However, Software testers sometimes have difficulty articulating what is important or necessary.  

  • Do I go down the Test Tool route and become an expert on one or more test tools?
  • Do I try to learn testing techniques and apply them to a variety of situations?
  • Do I try to learn the application which I am testing thoroughly and pick up the testing techniques as required to test it?


All of these are legitimate questions and answering in either the positive or the negative for each one can have impacts on your career.

There is still time to register for the Test Leadership course on January 28 - 29, 2016.  Contact neil@nvp.ca or see the events calendar.
