Get your copy of the State of Testing 2013 — it is hot off the press!!

In a prior posting I invited testers to participate in the State of Testing Survey. This is a unique survey asking testers about the current state of testing such as what approaches, techniques, and tools that they use plus their opinion on the challenges in the testing field. The survey is sponsored by Lalit Bhamare, one of the editors of Tea-time with Testers and Joel Montvelisky co-founders of PractiTest. I do love the collaboration within the world-wide Testing Community – I believe it is a community to be envied because many professionals cannot tap into a similar network.

Today the results was published and you can download the free survey report. I do not want to say too much about the results and take away from their report. However, I am impressed with the number of testers who participated, the information gathered, the layout of results, and brief narrations throughout the report. There is a ton of valuable information and as a Software Testing Manager I will spend some serious time reviewing the results to determine how my team compares to the community and identify opportunities for future endeavors.

So grab a cup of tea and take some time to read this valuable survey. If you did not participate or perhaps did not know about it, there is good news. They plan on conducting the survey on a yearly basis. So near the end of this year I will let you know when you can participate. I would like to thank Lalit and Joel for their dedication of time to create, analyze, and publish this important survey for the Testing Community.
