The software testing world has undoubtedly changed in the past 5, 10 and 20 years.
For those that have been around long enough, what’s a testing belief you once held but have now let go of?
Response so from a Tweet I put out:
- That everything has to be planned and nailed down up front (Dan Billing)
- That you had to be ISEB certified before you could be a good tester - (LarryG)
- That testing is about finding bugs (Hylke De Jong)
- That I can find all the bugs. (Dana Bentley)
- That testers and developers don’t work together (Iain Bright)
- That 100% bug free is the goal. (Jenna Charlton)
- Always aiming for the best (Helena Barmer)
- Automation coverage 100% (Anand Ganesh Sivaraj)
- That you had to automate EVERYTHING (Kaveeta Bhatia)
- That assigned acceptants take acceptance testing seriously. (Herman Nijland)
- That we needed a perfect understanding of how the system was supposed to work before we could do any useful testing. (To be honest that illusion didn’t survive contact with reality for very long.) (James Christie)
