New topic: web bugs

Time from time while searching in the web I find interesting stuff, relating testing. Mostly grammar small bugs. Decided to share with you.
Today's picture was found in internet bank system, swedbank. Tried to edit my direct debit payment, and did not get the right button name :)

what about crisis?

everyone has been talking about crisis, The Crisis, already more than a year. so, what is the crisis impact for software testing and testers? "software consulting firm Ovum claims that the worldwide software testing services market is projected to reach 56 billion dollars by 2013, despite the global economic crisis".
In my background, all IT sector has less sofware projects. Companies save money first of all cutting IT expenses.
IT software companies may start saving with fewer testers. One person commented: "a client does want to buy testing services. He will test the product himself". Developers and coders are more valuable - they code and then test the product. And the tester remains as a luxury for better times.
When considering among testers, company would necessarily cut manual testers first over technical testers.
How do you feel crisis as a tester?

impressions: conference in Riga

My late impressions on ‚ 10th Annual Conference for Testing Professionals "TEST MORE FOR LESS". One day conference, starting early in the morning. Had a chance to see Riga old town in the evening.

It was not first time taking attending the conference – during studies at the UNI, we have prepared once. This was the first time I attended a testing related event. So many testers in one place :)
The organisers of the conference really worked hard. Our company group enjoyed everything – the presentations in English, the time management, coffy breaks and tasty luch. Now, the program and all conference material are available at website.

The main impression – automation and agile rules. Last year we also switched from waterfall to RUP iteration. and starting more serious automated testing..

What is the drawback of a conference, that presentations are short. (If you are not interested or do not understand Latvian, of course, happy it is only 20-30 minutes) When you are really int…

New Software Quality Testing Certification

While reading the last issue of Testing experience, found a short message: 'Industry Leaders Announce New Software Quality Testing Certification'. QAMP® - Quality Assurance Management Professional. It sets high standards - to a broad theoretical knowledge – which needs to be demonstrated by 3 successfully passed certification examinations – it attests the practical knowledge and project experience of the certified employee. Theoretical and practical knowledge both have to be updated annually.
Upon completion of all three certificates and proof of the two year practical experience, the participant will be certified as iSQI Quality Assurance Management Professional (QAMP).

In case the applicant is not able to submit evidence of practical experience (e.g. graduates) the applicant will receive the status iSQI Quality Assurance Management Professional (QAMP) - Bachelor.

Attached the certification schema, not easy to understand. I suggest visiting their site,

My note, it…

ISTQB advanced certification ir Lithuania

Good title of the post. If you have questions about advanced ISTQB certification in Lithuania, the only answer is - not possible (only foundation level). For the moment, there is no testing board in Lithuania, so decided to write where you may take the tests for advanced certification.

Polish Testing Board ( over 6 years. There would be no problem (i guess) to take the exam. The website is really full of information, even with the statistics - pass and fail ratio.

Latvia Testing Board is a few times younger. And for now they have accreditation only for Foundation Level. You may read more on their web site.
