How to Choose a Test Management Tool

While it might seem that the most important consideration when choosing a test management software tool is the set of basic tool features supporting the test process itself, you should not neglect a wide range of other questions that could make or break your test management tool choice. This whitepaper identifies the key attributes you should look for in a test management solution.

Quality Code

There are many books about software testing, but I will put Quality Code in the best that I have read. It presents a philosophy about software testing that has been mine in my software developer life: the programmer is the main person responsible for the quality of its code.

*** Quote of the Month ***

Minimalism also applies in software. The less code you write, the less you have to maintain. The less you maintain, the less you have to understand. The less you have to understand, the less chance of making a mistake. Less code leads to fewer bugs.
