What is the State of Testing?

The State of Testing is the largest annual survey that seeks to identify the existing characteristics, practices and challenges facing the testing community in hopes to shed light and provoke a fruitful discussion towards  improvement. It is the initiative of this QA Intelligence Blog and in collaboration with TeaTime with Testers.

The insightful final report is shared worldwide with the global testing community, partly thanks to our collaborating bloggers, media collaborators, online ‘word of mouth’ and reputation.

Each year the amount of participants has increased, and the final reports becomes even more valuable as a culminated reflection of testing trends, challenges and characteristics.

Past survey reports have even been translated into several languages and shared globally, further expanding the reach and impact this report has on all of us in QA.
