Hello, tech soul!

Welcome to the Vijay Computer Academy blog.

Today, we bring you a trending topic on the IT market that can be of interest in case you’re looking for a new career or a salary raise

In this article, we’re going to tell you all about software testing, its definition, what it requires, and most importantly: where you can learn it all.

Are you ready to start?

What’s software testing?

Software Testing is defined as an activity to check whether the actual results match the expected results and to ensure that the software system is defect-free. 

It involves the execution of a software component or system component to evaluate one or more properties of interest. 

Software Testing also helps to identify errors,  gaps, or missing requirements contrary to the actual requirements. 

On the technology side, the testing can be either done manually or using automated tools

Why software testing?

The reason that software testing is becoming a high-demand skill by the day is simple: more and more companies in the world are using software to help them run their business, and no one wants to face inconvenient bugs daily

Softwares became a foundation for so many online activities, and they are everywhere, if you stop to see it.

Microsoft Windows, for example, is a software (the most used in the world). 

Without, people with notebooks can’t use them, since it’s a basic function (except for Macbooks, that use Safari)

Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and many others are also softwares.

The increased usage of these tools demands someone to overview them and guarantee they’re running smoothly, and that’s where the software testing skills come in

Career pathways for software testing

Inside the career opportunities reserved in the software testing niches, there are a few who has the best chance to be wanted in companies
