My Tryst with Software Testing

This month, we have a special post from our tester Pramod, from India. Read on as he tells us a little about himself and his testing experience, and explains the Seven Principles of Software Testing, a set of well-known principles used by the ISTQB (International Software Testing Qualifications Board) to certify software testers.

About Me
Hi, I am Pramod L. from India, a nation known as the land of festivals. We enjoy celebrating festivals throughout the year, and I celebrate being a software tester similarly. For every assignment I undertake, I determine why the client is looking at getting their product tested, and enjoy finding defects that bring smiles to their faces. I do not possess any formal qualification in the field of software testing but have been a part of the industry for more than a decade and a half now, and have enjoyed every minute of my journey. Presently, I am working in managerial capacity for a leading Indian IT MNC.

Egal, ob es sich „nur“ um Rechtschreibfehler handelt oder die Webseite crasht, sobald eine bestimmte Funktion ausgeführt wird – für mich absolute No-Gos und im Privaten nicht selten das K.-o.-Kriterium für Webseiten, Apps und jedwede andere Art von Software.

Come fly into the Nest

They were on a road trip around Germany as well as other countries and, as freshly hatched Testbirds coming through Munich, wanted to meet the team and see what our Nest actually looks like.
