The 2018 State of Testing survey is investigating how the testing profession develops. It only takes 10 minutes to fill it in, so please join me for this worldwide survey on testing.
From the survey website:
The State of Testing™ seeks to identify the existing characteristics, practices, and challenges facing the testing community in hopes to shed light and provoke a fruitful discussion towards improvement.
The final report is translated into several languages and shared globally, further expanding the reach and impact this report has on all of us in the QA world.
This is the 5th year that the QA Intelligence Blog is running this survey in collaboration with TeaTime with Testers, and with your help, it can be bigger and more comprehensive than in previous years.
I interviewed Joel and Lalit for InfoQ on the State of Testing Survey and asked them what’s new in the 2018 survey:
Montvelisky: This year we had the fortune of gathering a good group of testing enthusiasts and experts who helped by suggesting new questions to get visibility into different angles of testing. We are also adding questions about more technical aspects of testing. Still, I believe the biggest news of the survey will come from the fact that this is the 5th time we are asking some of our questions and we are getting more depth and the ability to see real trends and developments in our professional realms.
Bhamare: We have added more questions to the list and have also added more options to some questions in order to find granular information. This year’s review panel has been indeed very helpful in a sense that we could add multiple contexts to the topics covered. And we are excited to see what we find out based on peoples’ responses.
The key idea is that, we have made deliberate efforts to make the survey time-relevant to capture things happening in response to the change drivers of our industry.
