Over the last few decades, the art and craft of Software Development have followed the Darwinian principles of Evolution. From being an activity to ‘check if the software works’, to ‘find out when it doesn’t work’ to the current thinking of ‘anticipate failures and prevent them’, Testing has evolved in importance within the lifecycle of software application development. Testers are no longer people who simply click buttons on a screen, but write frameworks, test scaffolds, code automated tasks, setup and manage environments and do everything that is traditionally associated with Developers and Technical staff. Our objective in this infographic is to track the evolution of software testing over the years.
Quality Engineering is the new mantra, where QA teams work side-by-side with developers in the trenches, engineering quality into the product from the start, preventing many defects from occurring and being detected.
