Software Testing on a Mac OS

In Mac OS X, Software Testing, Testing Jobs on February 26, 2011 at 2:50 am

When it comes to class there is nothing to beat a mac.  Software testers need not shy away from this Porsche or Lamborghini or a Rolls Royce in personal computers, because there is a lot in it for them.  Number 1 it presents a challenge to test on a completely different platform other than windows.  Number 2, the tribe of mac users seem to be growing. Number 3, you may end up being paid more than a Windows tester.


Are you a graduate who is employable

In Social relevance, Software Testing, Testing Jobs on February 26, 2011 at 2:31 am

In a study made by some research organization, it was declared that most graduates in India are not employable.The reason for this could be that, these graduates do not have communication skills which are basically, the life line of any organization. Students like these are left to the mercy of private institutions to groom them into becoming employable.  I would like our educational institutions to earn a  reputation for  themselves by introducing communication skills.  This would not only make them employable but also successful in their lives

Testing in academic curricullum

The growing market for software testers, is clearly an indication that testing should be taught in mainstream education.  Computer Science majors in a Bachelor’s degree, study wide ranging courses like Databases, Networks, Operating Systems, Compilers, System Analysis and design and of course Software Engineering.  I believe its time to introduce Software Testing in the mainstream courses.

Currently, Software testing is normally taught as a part of a software engineering course.  Of course you do have some universities that offer classes in Software testing as a part of your university academics.  However it is yet to take off in India. A lot of training centers do offer training in Software testing, but how many onions and potatoes are churned out is anybody’s guess.  Including Software testing in mainstream education should be seriously considered by academicians.
