I worked on an agile team where we used a notecard for each story. Once we committed to a story we wrote out the user acceptance criteria on the back of the card. The language used was important because you do not want to provide a solution within a story, so your criteria has to address the problem being solved rather than how to solve it. This made it so ...

I came across a similar issue in our organisation. We wanted to practice BDD but many of our projects didn't lend themselves well to automation - either we were limited by time or by technical expertise. We built a simple RubyGem called Crudecumber to allow testers to step through the tests manually and pass, fail or skip each step using the keyboard in the ...

Try HttpMaster which focuses on REST and API testing.It supports dynamic parameters, validation of response data, various data viewers, etc. You can also save all your test definitions as HttpMaster project (single file) to reopen them later or use on another machine.

When we decided to implement a centralized test case management system in our company, the team spend a lot of time analyzing and evaluating various available tools.I was actually surprised and rather impressed that companies like Yahoo, Toshiba, Texan Instruments, etc. (full list is available on the Testlink website) have used Testlink in some projects ...

We started our research on the tool which I could integrate with JIRA and came to a conclusion that testlink is free tool and why we do not try it. After comparing some of the paid tools, I found TESTLINK is the best one to go with. I integrated successfully and later started exploring testlink end to end according to my knowledge it helped us in mapping ...

I'm finding in the UK more recruitment agencies are asking for ISEB/ISTQB Foundation Certificate, not sure whether this is required by companies using them, or they are using it as a 'quality gauge'. Agencies tend to know little or nothing about testing so this may be their only tool at their disposal. May be possible that having a certificate means you get ...

Another vote for TestRail here. I've used TD/QC, Bugzilla, Excel and I think based on price, ease of use and integration with Jira its a very good product.

I think it´s because the Testlink is constantly updating and suit to the new test trends. In my companie we used the Testlink for manager all test project a few years. The friendly usability and strong performance grow up the Testlink to the best tool available.

Firstly, you say in a comment that it would have been easier to make a Word document. If your test needs are indeed so simple that a Word document fulfils them, then you don't need TestLink or any other test management tool. But just as most organisations that try to use Word/Excel as their issue-management tool soon discover the drawbacks, so they also ...

Component testing is that in which we test those test objects which are separately testable as a isolated unit without integrating with other components (e.g. modules, programs, objects, classes, etc.). Testing of separate software component is known as component testing. Component Testing is considered as the Module Testing, because we are testing each ...

Yes, this is bit confusing. The question should be clear. But, if you see the choices, only one choice is from Non functional side and all the three have similarities (part of functional testing). So, no choice we have than choosing 'Non functional testing' as the answer.

To put it simple: QA is a process-oriented activity - evaluation, review and improvement of processes across the software development life cycle. Better processes=>better product (quality). QC (Quality Control) is product-oriented and involves dynamic testing and static techniques such as reviews, inspections etc. Products are e.g. specifications, design ...

Ok, first of all it's a freeware tool, but then...? How could I first convince myself and then my boss to use TestLink instead of something else? As other people have said, you first need to understand what are you looking for then you can write down a comparison matrix between all test management tools you are evaluating. Then, after filling the ...

I have no experience with the specific system, but it sounds to me like a culture or administrative problem. Are the different phases part of the same department? Who coordinates the test strategy? Is there an overall test budget?

AFAIK there are certain limitations to the online version of the tool. Here is a screenshot of how it looks on my side in Microsoft Test Manager. There also some information at the bottom that can`t be seen in the SS below reering to Links and History.

You have one year of experience with the Banking and Finance Industry, that's good! Experienced or not, having a certification is good and proves that you have knowledge and know how to use the knowledge. Yes, it's helpful for your career. Put the certification and your one year experience as a bonus. HR will be interested in hiring you from this ...

Would getting Certifications like below help my career? Definitely Maybe. It probably matters where in the world you intend to work, and for what kinds of companies. I tried to explore that question a while back. In my locale, I concluded that the answer is "It probably won't matter": ...

The best way to help your career is to learn how to test and become very good at it. James Bach has a really good post directed at new testers, that is worth reading (lots of recommendations) and he says this about certifications: Don’t get certified. There are no respectable commercial testing certifications. If you are forced to get certified for ...

As others have said, it's free. There are no licensing costs, and in my experience the time costs of learning and using the tool well are comparable with any other tool regardless of license cost. It's also open to modification, which means if there's a programmer with the right skillset, you can add features you need, customize at the source code and ...

It might help you land a first job, but in my experience hiring testers, certs are no indication of a good hire, beyond teaching some technical language.

there are two factors- price (or lack of) and being one of the least bad tools in the market. How could you convince your boss to use it? easy- decide on a set of features important to you, test some tools (most of them are easy to setup, some have online demo projects) and fill in a table with grades per feature. If you color code the grades (e.g. ...

I think its because its free of costs. When evaluation test-case management tools in the past we put TestLink aside pretty fast, it felt clumsy and also its looks & feel was horrible. We eventually settled on TestRail, but as I was not part of the manual test teams I don't know if they are really happy with it. But functionally it felt good, I did some ...

Yes and No. Hiring managers might like certifications, but here in the Netherlands the two most asked certifications are ISTQB and T-Map. So the ones you name might not be useful in Europe. Also read this question: Do ISTQB/ISEB Testing Certificates prove that someone can test? Personally I am a follower of the http://www.professionaltestersmanifesto.org/ ...

Can I work in this scenario with the above background? First of all, anything is possible. It's really hard to give advice without knowing more about you and your background. Describing your background in a short post on a forum like this isn't easy. Assuming the company who extended you the offer, knows about your current background and wants to hire ...

I know that is a really old thread but just in case somebody comes here from a recent search maybe it's useful these slides about Agile Testing http://es.slideshare.net/abagmar/what-is-agile-testing-how-does-automation-help

You seem to be focused on the technical aspects of doing software QA. I would say your background is good for doing test automation and finding bugs that are results of technical obstacles. However, it takes a strong will to put up with the amount of animosity you may have to control. I find troubling is that no one is bringing up the intense social ...

You have a very good background to apply, depending of the company maybe you have to learn something more than you know but just like everything in this life, nobody's born knowing everything. As Nike says Just do it! Finally want to share a very interesting article about QA role in agile teams ...

You have plenty of background. You need to focus more on what you'll be actually doing - many engineering roles in software require you to have a foundational param (with specific reqs..) If you've never worked in Agile (Scrumming is just a part of agile BTW) then start getting familiar with it - it's really not that bad. For me, I would personally just ...

In Software Quality Assurance: Latent defects are the those which arises in the field, and unknown until they reported by the field staff. More bugs during development phase, chances are more latent defects will be.
