Hi pg and other fellow monks,

Again as a representative/part of testing community I welcome your discussion on a topic which needs to be raised almost everywhere in this world who have employed testing proffesionals.

After being in testing for 2 and a half years I feel very few people have a clear concept of what testing is.

I have never crossed India so my comments would be based on what I have seen in Bangalore.

1) Most of the people here will ask you "what tools you know?" if you +say you are a tester and not given a product how will you test someth +ing. 2) Most of the people here are confused with the testing terminology. +Regression testing which basically is a selective re-testing is misun +derstood as executing all the cases. 3) Many of the people I know put fake experience and enter MNC's there +by decreasing the quality of the product. 4) There are more Testing Institutes than S/w companies in India which + teaches Testing tools and claim as testing course. 5) Some companies make the developers to do system testing apart from +unit testing for lack of funds to hire a Testing guy. 6) Even MNC's are not clear about the position they offer .. Some comp +anies are confused between QA and Testing. 7) A QA engineer does testing in the current company and sometimes Tes +ting people are asked to look at the process which is a QA role. 8) If you join some indian students yahoo groups most of them would ha +ve a query from 10% of the people of the group asking whether to join + a testing course and the money they will get back. 9) Testing is more of an attitude game and not a profession either. 10) Every company should spend a day or two testing the products for t +hose scenarios which dont appear in the test plan/cases before User A +cceptance testing. 11) Rarely you can find a good quality tester in India because every t +ester wants to go to development feeling there is more money there an +d more travel opportunity. 12)I have seen many people skip cases. What is the use of writing a ca +se when people testing it skip. 13) I have also noticed people writing duplicated test case. 14) Test data is another important aspect in testing which most of the + companies constrain themselves if it costs a few $. 15) When the devoid testers become leads/mananger their management pri +nicples contribute to the degradation of the quality. 16) Testers here are rarely allowed to undergo the training what the d +eveloper undergoes which is not a good sign for the quality of the pr +oduct. 17) Freshers are hired and directly given test cases and are asked to +execute.No company nor these freshers worry that they should understa +nd the domain/technology before they get hands on something. 18) I am a tester by virtue and not by profession.Every other team mem +ber wants to jump to development or something else soon. 19) All interviews in india today for testing has one question in comm +on "why do you like testing and will you be in testing for a long tim +e ?" Gosh ! look at the poor state of my virtue.
You people have seen more than me so would have better views , please excuse me if anything was wrong because I am naive :-D.

Regards

Prad
