We’ve all been there at one point in our careers. You’re sitting there thinking about what you’re going to do because you’ve got no specifications, requirements or use cases but you’ve been asked/told/expected to test.
It can be daunting for some. For me, it was when I was very new to the world of testing and so felt like a deer in headlights thinking “What do I do?” “I can’t look idle, there has to be something, anything I can work on to provide value.”
With the benefit of hindsight that many of us now have, what would you say to someone in this situation? What can they do? Where should they start?
