Testing – The Next Level

Reading Time: 1 minute

The theme for the¬†EuroSTAR Conference 2007¬†was ‘Defining the Profession’ and the discussion was ‘Are we a profession at all?’ Isabel Evans mentioned during her keynote session that testing is not yet as professional as we might think. She emphasized the areas of improvement testers need to go through in order to become a professional tester. As a result of this, Erik uses every occasion to ask testers about where they feel testing is at the moment. He gets many diverse answers, going from “In the starting blocks”, to “We’re finally getting some structure in our profession” to “The future is looking very bright for testers!” Based on all this information, Erik has started building his own view on ‘Where are we in testing?’ And even more important, ‘What are some of the challenges that we are currently facing?’
