Stemming from our recent article 6 Technical Testing Skills that Have Nothing to do With Automation - I got involved in a debate on Twitter about what actually constitutes technical testing.
Danny Dainton says “It’s not all about being able to code.”
Lim Sim reckons “There’s much more. Viewing and creating dashboards, monitoring, using analytics tools.”
Bill Matthews says it’s “not about having technical skills, it’s about a focus on testing against technical risks with a product.”
I say it’s about “using the techniques of the craft.” Using the right tools for the job, or context.
What do you say?
