Software testing is the process of executing a program or application with the intent of finding whether the actual results match the expected results and to ensure that the software system is defect free.
This enables the software tester to identify errors, gaps or missing requirements in contrary to the actual requirements. It can be either done manually or using automated tools.
A recent study found out that the demand for quality assurance skills is on the rise with more software testing jobs being advertised everyday.
According to Jerry (Gerald) Weinberg, a renowned computer scientist and testing expert, “If you are not learning something new each day, you are not testing”.
This statement holds true because the technology, agile and devops methodologies are advancing rapidly while accelerated development and continuous deployments are getting more complex, making testing a critical activity.
Hence, learning new things and advancing in the technical skills becomes inevitable to keep up with the trends and avoid becoming obsolete in software testing.
Having said that, there are few more skills that can help you find bugs and work with QA processes better.
