What is the State of Testing™?

The State of Testing™  initiative seeks to identify the existing characteristics, practices, and challenges facing the testing community today in hopes to shed light and provoke a fruitful discussion towards improvement.

The final report is translated into several languages and shared globally, further expanding the reach and impact this report has on all of us in the QA world.

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