Why are software testers important?

In today's digital world, software plays a big role. From your smartphone to the fridge, software drives it. And who makes sure this software runs smoothly? The software testers. Without this profession, software would not be tested and have a high risk of crashing or simply not functioning. So a software tester has an essential role!

What is software testing?

Software testing is the process of checking software for errors (or 'bugs' in technical language) and making sure everything works as it should . You can do this using many different test design techniques. But it is not just technical; it also requires a critical and curious mind. And it is precisely these qualities that make fresh newcomers like you invaluable.

The building blocks of software testing: TMap and TPI

When you think of the building blocks of software testing, TMap and TPI are the cornerstones. While TMap guides you through the complex world of test management, TPI helps you optimise testing processes. They are your compasses in the software world and with Testlearning, application becomes child's play.
