Let’s get started with the Manual Testing Tutorial
What happens during the manual testing process? How do you string together all the parts mentioned in the first post? This is where we dig a bit deeper to explore what happens when we take manual testing into the workplace. What are user expectations and those of the commissioning business, and when should you set up the test environment?
There are many different ways to conduct manual testing. This is because one type alone won't be able to answer everything you need to know about a build. Choosing the right techniques can help you find out if everything works as intended, how a web page looks on all the popular browsers, and just as importantly, do people enjoy using the new product.
Automation seems to get all the headlines these days, so why would anyone say that manual testing is still relevant, let alone important? Check out this post to learn why manual testing remains the central component of most testing projects. I think you'll be surprised, but if you need a clue, it's all about human ingenuity.
In manual testing, you will sometimes find that the methodology you want to use requires a tool. Other times, tools can be optional, helping you to save time and be more efficient. This post will enable you to find out what kinds of tools are available, what they do, and how they can support your testing.
Finally, we compare manual and automation testing to explore the strengths and weaknesses of both methods. During a comprehensive testing project, both kinds of testing are likely to be used. By checking through our comparison, you will have a better idea of where to use each method in the best ways to support successful testing.
