How much coding is required for software testers?
Hi community, I have heard this many times: “Testers must be able to code”. Do you agree? In my latest video, I am sharing my point of view on this question. Do you agree? What is your experience on this topic?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wurSKYq3Ot8Looking forward to reading from you.#HappyTesting
Handling Captcha In test Automation
Hi Community, I think the topic has been in debate for long. I think captcha cannot be automated and we should ask the dev team to remove it as it is designed to identify it is are used as security checks todeter spammers and hackers from using forms on web pages.But there are certain chrome windgets like buster which can resolve the captcha. kindly let me knowyour thoughts.
What Is Stress Testing
This article was written by Bhavarth Kandoria and published on the TestProject BlogHow familiar are you with stress testing? 🧐 Let’s have an overview! In this article, we will discuss what it is, why we should perform it, a good strategy, and some pros and cons. You will also be provided with a list of tools to perform it. So let’s get started!What Is Stress testing?Stress testing is one of the non-functional testing types of performance testing. Stress testing is performed to determine the reliability and effectiveness of a machine, program, or network under unfavorable conditions 🔧Unfavorable conditions cover running some high-processing applications on a single machine at the same time, flooding a server with numerous requests, making concurrent attempts to access a single website, DoS attacks, etc. This type of testing is generally done on critical software but can be used as per the requirement.Stress testing focuses on robustness, availability, and error handling under a heavy
Please stop saying "testers ensure quality"
Testers do not ensure or assure quality.To ensure something, you must control it. This is a necessary, but not sufficient condition. So, even if you control it, you may not be able to to ensure it. As a tester, I have absolutely no control over quality, therefore I cannot ensure quality. The people who could ensure quality are managers and developers. Even they can’t ensure it, but for different and more complicated reasons than those that apply to testers.(I also don’t “break the software” because it is already broken when I find it.)So, what do I do as a tester?I seek the truth, and I report the truth, about the status of the product at any given time. I do this so that the team I work for can make informed decisions about quality.If I break anything, it is the veil of illusion. I shatter the dreams of the naive. But not the product. The product is the product, before and after I test it.A good tester has no faith in the product. We have faith in trouble. I mean faith in the full lit
Do you really do Agile?
Are you really using Agile in your Projects? A lot of projects/teams claim to work in an Agile ways. They use methodologies and ceremonies that are tipically associated with Agile and with Scrum. However in reality it is actually a Sprint based Waterfall. Share your experience. What do you use.
As testers, should we or shouldn't we talk about AI tools like chatGPT?
The talk of the town, ChatGPT, can provide some benefits for testing activities, but its effectiveness in speeding up the testing process or generating test cases will depend on the specific use case and the quality of the input data provided to it. While people do not want to miss the train, but they have to very clear where and how they should use AI. In my opinion, ChatGPT can help in testing in following ways: Test data generation: ChatGPT can be used to generate synthetic test data based on specific scenarios or requirements. For instance, it can generate test data that simulates specific user interactions or system responses to validate the functionality of a software application. Test case generation: ChatGPT can be used to generate test cases based on specific requirements or test scenarios. However, the effectiveness of this approach will depend on the quality of the input data provided to the model and the level of detail required for the test cases. Test script automatio

How to integrate existing Selenium scripts into Tosca?
We have a scenario where we need to integrate around 700+ existing selenium test scripts into tosca. Tosca provides Standard Module ‘Selenium - Run Selenium scripts’ which helps to run selenium jar files by giving path name. Is there any other capabilities ? or Can we use this in DEX parallel execution? Please help.Regards,Vinaya G N
I’m new to games testing , so I was wondering if there are any tools out there which uses re-enforced learning or ML to navigate through the game ?The game is being developed in Unity and I know Unity has tools to script automated tests but I’m more looking for tools which automatically would be able to traverse the game. is there a tool out there which would do this?
Unanticipated beefits of Tosca?
I am a sales guy at Tricentis. I have a prospect asking me “what are the unexpected benefits of Tosca?” We have talked about all of the expected benefits (300% Plus ROI. Faster releases. Better quality releases. Increased risk coverage. Overall reduction in cost. etc) but she wants to get a feeling for the unanticipated value that her testers may experience.The list I have so far is:- you can use it for scraping data from websites and other applications. - it forces you to build modular vs monolithic test - You can use it for data loading- You can use it as a general purpose macro engine to tie together business processesAny other thoughts? What value have you gotten from Tosca that you weren’t expecting?
Test-Driven Development (TDD) vs. Behavior-Driven Development (BDD): Which Approach do you use in your Project?
Test-Driven Development (TDD) and Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) are two popular approaches to software development that prioritize testing and quality assurance. TDD focuses on writing tests before writing codeBDD focuses on defining the behavior of the system before writing code. Which one do you use? Do you use either, or a third one?

How do you write your test cases?
I want to ask a question that is both simple and complex to answer: How do you write your test cases?Why do I say it is simple?Well I mean according to some definitions testers write test cases and since they do it often it should be easy. Also there is a ton of information online on how to write a test case, what should it contain, so again, easy and simple.Why do I say it is complex?Well, a PM once told me that the tests should be written in such a way that a person coming from the street should be able to run them. I mean that is not impossible to do but it will take time, a lot of time. One has to find a way to explain concepts that are not really in the day to day dictionary ( API for example).I think that they want somenthing like this When tests steps are really clear - YouTube 16What do you think? How do you do it?

We built this space for developers, testers, and DevOps specialists to easily share knowledge, connect with like-minded people, and enhance quality in the development process. What we offer In the ShiftSync community you can find: Various articles on testing strategies and development methodologies written by experts in the industry. A discussion forum wher
Development Methodologies in testing
In the world of testing, oh what a sight,There are development methodologies left and right!Waterfall, Agile, DevOps, and more,Each with its own unique score. Waterfall's like a river, flowing down,Each phase completed before the next comes 'round.Design, coding, testing, all in a row,In the end, a product that's good to go. Agile's more like a jungle, wild and free,With sprints and stand-ups, and lots of team camaraderie.Iterations and feedback, they all do their part,To create a product that's work of art. DevOps is like a machine, moving fast,Continuous integration, deployment, and testing that lasts.Automation's the key, with pipelines in play,To deliver software every single day. But which one's the best, you may ask,Well, that depends on the testing task.Each has its own strengths and flaws,So pick the one that suits your cause. In the world of testing, there's no one size fits all,So experiment and find the right call.And when you've found the right way to test,Your product will
The Importance of Automated User Acceptance Testing
This article was written by Enrique De Coss and published on the TestProject BlogUser acceptance testing is something that some Agile teams perform. However, only a few of them are taking advantage of tools to automate it. The general trend for most Agile teams is to rely on functional testing of new features before automating any flow.Based on what I’ve seen in different Agile teams, working with code-based solutions is what turns UAT into a headache for most of them. Applications can be 100% functional from a technical standpoint and still fail because requirements are not clearly defined or effectively communicated to developers ❌In other cases, new code that appeared efficient in every virtual deployment model may have been inadequately tested for specific customer scenarios.A User Acceptance Testing BriefUser acceptance testing can be an expensive exercise for some companies, but the cost of not having one can be even higher. For example, Microsoft rushed to release a flawed game
