Hi there! I’m a few months into my first QA job. Being the first “formal” QA in the company, I had to develop most of the flows and methods we have for testing. We used to ship e-commerces that were not thoroughly tested, or were tested by the same developers that built the product.
Since they hired a Junior role (me) to start the QA Department, knowledge gaps were expected and I’m doing whatever I can to build a scalable structure and documentation for future hires in QA.
My context aside, I’m used to test in diferent browsers and different resolutions/devices. However, in a recent project I encountered something I hadn’t considere before.
A website layout I am testing breaks in my Thinkpad laptop, 1920x1080 BUT scaled to 125%, but not in 1920x1080 at 100%.
When you are testing, do you take into account the diferent scaling options Windows offers? My laptop has 125% by default, so I assume a good fraction of the userbase has scaled displays also.
Any input regarding this topic is highly welcome, also regarding being the first member of the QA department being a junior and proposing the future of QA in the company.
For the time being I’m working on installing a culture of quality and BDD, working in the whole process, from the sales pitch to design, to delivery.
I hope you are all doing great,
