Testing worthy tips

Here are some general testing ideas:
  • Read useful testing blog (
  • Read the materials on these website (
  • Consider reading either books: Lessons Learned in Software Testing, or Secrets of a Buccaneer-Scholar.
  • Read the materials and blog at
  • Get on Twitter and watch the conversations among the Context-Driven community. Participate in those discussions.
  • Join It’s a quiet, moderated email forum for Context-Driven testers.
  • Practice testing things that aren’t secret, and then post your test results online so that others can see them.
  • Consider taking the RTI Online class.
  • Consider taking the BBST class.
  • Participate in sessions conducted by
  • Consider attending the Let’s Test conference or the CAST conference.
  • If you want to get good at using tools while testing, try learning Python.
Here are some books to read:
  • Introduction to General Systems Thinking, by Gerald M. Weinberg
  • Quality Software Management, Vol. 1: Systems Thinking, by Gerald M. Weinberg
  • Tacit and Explicit Knowledge, by Harry Collins
  • The Black Swan, by Nassim Taleb
  • Testing Computer Software, by Cem Kaner, remains a good classic testing book.

What kinds of testers are there?
  • Automated? Manual? There is no such thing as manual or automated testing. It’s all just testing. Testing is often supported by tools that attempt to simulate user interaction with the system. This is what people call “test automation” even though it is only automating a crude approximation of one aspect of testing. If you have the ambition to be a one-man test team, it is extremely valuable to learn how to make your own tools.
  • Exploratory? Scripted? There is no such thing as an exploratory or scripted tester. All good testing is exploratory to some degree and scripted to some degree.
  • Tester. This is a testing generalist who can contribute to any test team. Sometimes called a QA analyst, QA engineer, or test engineer. I prefer the simplicity of “tester.”
  • Omega Tester. The omega tester (which I sometimes call a test jumper, after the analogy of a paratrooper) is one who can do anything. An omega tester is equipped to be the only tester in a project team, if necessary. Omega testers can lead testing, or work with a team of other testers. I am an omega tester. I aspire to be a good one.
  • Performance Tester. The performance tester understands the mathematics and dynamics of the performance of large-scale systems. They use tools that create high loads and measure the performance envelope of systems as they scale up. Performance testers often don’t think of themselves as testers.
  • Usability Tester. The usability tester is a bit mythical. I have met only two dedicated usability testers in my entire career, but I have seen more of them from a distance. A usability tester specializes in studying how users feel about using and learning a product.
  • Security Tester. Security testers also often don’t think of themselves as testers. Security is an exciting, specialized form of testing that requires the mastery of a great many facts about a great many technologies.
  • Testing Toolsmith. A testing toolsmith is a programmer dedicated to writing and maintaining tools that help testers. This is what a lot of people would call an “automated tester” but you better not use that term around me.
  • “SDET” Software Development Engineer in Test. This means a full on programmer who does testing using his programming skills.
Great thanks read  it and achieve your dreams

Why Learning Management Systems?

A learning management system (LMS) is an application or online information system used to plan, execute and evaluate a particular learning process. Basically, by using it instructors can evolve and deliver teaching content, monitor learner participation, keep track of progress and finally assess their performance too. It is not just being used in schools or colleges but also but large and small corporations for their employee training and knowledge management. Government bodies also widely use LMS today for delivering state as well as federal mandated material, regulatory policy implementation etc. 

Most of these LMSs have modules including users, course and instructor management, course calendar, messaging, notifications, evaluations or tests, reports, grading, web based course delivery etc. In an organization it helps to manage and track the skill set of its staffs and analyze them against business goals. This provides insights to skills gap and hence can lead to recommendations on prescriptive learning solutions for rectification. It is both time and cost effective.  

It also facilitates the ways and means of proper administration through reports monitoring, approvals, registrations and verifications. Most of these can be customized and can be suited to personal or organizational needs. In organizations LMSs can be used for talent management. For instance it helps in succession planning, performance management, operation appraisals, goals orientation and employee processes development etc. 

Notable benefits of using an LMS are:
Saves hours of time:

  1. Unlike traditional method of delivery
  2.  Can be easily organized and scheduled
  3. Immediate training access
  4. Reusable courses
  5. Materials can be imported and collaborated
  6. Instant sharing
  7.   On time delivery

Reduced costs:

  • Lowered delivery costs 
  •   Reduces employee travel
  • No instructor payments
  • imized training resources
  • Streamlining administration
  • No paperwork
  • More value for investment
Learn Anywhere Anytime:
  • No travel required
  • 24/7 from any location with web access
  • Real time training
  • Mobile device capabilities
  • Centralized location
Ensure Regulatory Compliance:

  1. Monitor, manage and report legally required training
  2. Suitable for Industries related to chemical, oil & gas, pharmaceuticals, construction etc
  3. Safety programs are common
  4. Ensures required certification  
Easy content customization:
  • Easy design and deployment
  • Variety of formats and languages
  • Hosted in a central location
  • Instant update and access
  • Easy upload of new product and service
  • Real time monitoring of participants
  • Recommendations and ratings
Effective evaluation: 
  • Construct quizzes or questionnaires
  • Immediate capabilities evaluation
  • Automate Grading
  • Setup certification process
  • Pre and post assessment to track progress
  • Periodic administration 
Ensure training Consistency
  1. Leverage content standards such as SCORM and AICC
  2. Single universal content
  3. Information consolidation
  4. Effective collaboration 
TTracking and Reporting:

  1. Comprehensive metrics
  2. Generate training reports, course reports, user reports & compliance reports
  3. Track utilization
  4. Track goal progress
  5. Track ROI
  6. Intelligent Insights With Reports & Stats
  7. Review records of success

Current trends are favoring increase of e-learning applications. By bridging the gap within traditional
classroom training and enabling great content to be created and managed, LMS appears to be very
promising. To know more, please reach us at
