A picture tells a thousand words, right?
Then imagine the stories a series of pictures could tell you?
This is what we are doing with the State of Testing project (6th year running). We are surveying the professional worldwide QA community every year with the State of Testing Survey, and documenting the answers in our State of Testing Report.
Why do we do this?
Very simply, we want to see where the testing community is heading, and the best way to know that is by trying to plot a course that shows where we’ve been and where we are today.
And then we let people get free access to this information so that all of us can use it to make better decisions about our careers.
The survey covers everything from demographics to best testing practices, testing skills, salaries, professional challenges, technologies, testing tools and so much more.
The final report is translated into several languages and shared globally (see past reports here), further expanding the reach and impact this report has on all of us in the QA world.
What do we need from you all?
Not a lot actually.
Just go and fill out the survey so that we have as many answers representing as many testers worldwide as we can!
Each year the amount of participants has increased, and the final report becomes even more valuable as a culminated reflection of testing trends, challenges, and characteristics.
I officially invite you to join this global community effort of QA influencers and shapers (it only takes 15 min. to fill out and will make a world of difference)
And before you move on with your busy day please share the survey with your professional network, co-workers, testing team-mates and so on…the more the merrier!
