linkedin conversation with UNC alumn asking about scrum testing
What I like about software testing is:
- fast pace / always learning something new
- sharpens your philosophical reasoning skills
conversation with duncan today
I had a conversation with Duncan today.
We often talk about software testing from a higher-level perspective. These are a few thoughts I wanted to record before I forgot.
- software testing is hard to train– you need:
- product knowledge that generally comes with time
- social capital (esp. at FMIS which is very compartmentalized)
- people skills– specifically ability to see from others perspectives to establish consensus
I like that it continually forces you to learn new things, check your biases (philosophical reasoning), and develop technical skills (scientific testing).
I like that requires high-level strategy “painting with process” :dad:
