Purpose of Software Testing = Success

Posted by Renée Elizabeth Mineart on 12/10/2021

Purpose of Software Testing = Success 

"Why should we care about Software Testing?" is a common question asked of software testing, especially in companies that are becoming more mature in their software development. Perhaps when the company was only managing one or two small websites, testing wasn’t a major consideration and developer testing was adequate.

'Tee-rific’ Steps to Creating a Test Automation Framework

Posted by Ryan Dudley on 10/08/2021

'Tee-rific’ Steps to Creating a Test Automation Framework

Hi, my name is Ryan Dudley and I’ve been working with nFocus now for nearly 8 years, starting my journey as an apprentice. Now I class myself as a budding Technical Tester, which is not an easy role. My day-to-day tasks at the moment consist primarily of manual testing, but at any given opportunity I like to be able to do automation. As there was no capacity for me to do this on my current project, I decided to do something within my own time and challenge myself to do something which I had not done before which was choosing a test automation framework and starting from scratch.

How did you get into testing?

It’s a question I often ask new team members about their career in software testing. In the old days, many arrived in testing as a result of being a User Tester for new software that their company was rolling out. In more recent years, the answers have been much more focused around having trained in an IT discipline and then choosing to specialise in a test role.
