Quality is delighting customers
Question for all of us - What are the tools that (you thought or experienced in any interview) companies are demanding from QA (to have must learned) in current competitive environment to get good position in top companies ? Please share all your views to help each other.
Like I have experienced for Demand of Jmeter for load and performance testing.
Companies are highly asking for jmeter for load testing of their sites.
Please share your views....friends.
Tools? In my opinion we should get familiar with concepts instead of exact tools. 25 years ago Pascal was important language. But now days if you know only Pascal, you'd be unemployed. Instead of learning Pascal, you had to learn general concept of programming.
Same is with test automation, performance testing tools etc.
To show the problem, I list here some of the tools I've used/I'm using at my work:
* Twiki for test cases and reporting
* QEMU & KVM for virtual environments
* OpenVSwitch for virtual networking
* Ruby for test automation
* tcpdump for network traffic analyze
* Python for own scripts
* Shell scripts
* Libre Office
* Text editor
* Git for version control
* Plenty of other tools which I can use to test different protocols like ftp, http, https, SIP, …
And then the most important tools:
* Color pens
With them I create mind maps and other things which are helping me at the test planning.
Then additional tools for training and presentations:
* Pens for that
And at the past projects e.g.:
* Robot Framework
* MS Office
* Quality Center
The perfect answer :) Thanks Teemu
First of all what exactly do you mean when you say QA?
Are you referring to a person as QA? If yes, then let aside the knowledge of tools you first need to learn the basics of quality and testing. By QA usually people understand Quality Assurance, which is (according to me) a process, and I don't think a person can be a process.
As far as the list of tools is considered, i guess Teemu has written a really good answer.
As Free Software is the need of the hour, focus more on learning Free Software such as
For Web Automation - Selenium
For Performance Testing: JMeter
Yes, Completed agree on your point According to me you can also go with the selenium automation testing tools.
The year 2020, is the year's automation so for you it would be better to learn selenium automation testing...
All the Best
