The 2020 State of Testing survey aims to shed light on the current status of testing, and analyze the trends and challenges of the profession. 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™ initiative by PractiTest and in collaboration with TeaTimeWithTesters seeks to identify the existing characteristics, practices, and challenges facing the testing community today in hopes to shed light and provoke a fruitful discussion towards improvement.
The final report is translated into several languages and shared globally and followed up by a discussion webinar with QA thought leaders who’ve analyzed it, further expanding the reach and impact this report has on all of us in the QA world.
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 interviewed Joel and Lalit for InfoQ on the State of Testing Survey and asked them what has been changed and what’s new in the 2020 survey:
Montvelisky: Interestingly enough we actually took out some questions that we thought were not providing valuable information, we did this in order to make the survey shorter. But we also added a couple of questions, following up from questions from last year, that refer to the ways in which we are expanding the testing process (right, left, etc) to cope with the challenges facing our teams today.
Bhamare: On top of what Joel already mentioned, I think we are also curious to see how exactly “non-testers participating in testing activities” trend is catching up and how exacty it is affecting the testing profession as such.
