QA & Testing


Let’s talk about a revolution in the QA world: Automated Testing. If you’re still clinging to manual testing, it might be time to let go. Why? Keep reading to find out!

The Era of Manual Testing

There was a time when manual testing was the king of the hill. Teams of QA engineers would spend hours clicking buttons and filling out forms. Ah, the good old days. Or were they?

Enter Automated Testing

Automated testing is like the cool new kid on the block. It’s swifter, more efficient, and let’s be honest, a lot cooler. It’s all about running scripts that do the heavy lifting for you.

Why Automated Testing?

Here’s why you should be eyeing automation:

  • Speed: Automated tests run way faster.
  • Consistency: Say goodbye to human error.
  • Efficiency: Run tests 24/7 without the need for human intervention.

Comparing Manual and Automated Testing

Sure, manual has its place, especially for exploratory and usability tests. But when it comes to repetitive tasks or large codebases, automated testing steals the show.

Transitioning from Manual to Automated

Feeling convinced? Here's how to make the switch:

  1. Evaluate your current testing methods.
  2. Select the right tools for automation.
  3. Train your team.

Cost Implications

Initial setup isn’t cheap, but long-term, automated testing can be a money-saver.

Learning Curve

Yeah, it’s a new skill set, but most find the transition worth the effort.

Real-Life Examples

  • Company A: Switched to automation and reduced their testing time by 50%.
  • Startup B: Adopted automated testing and caught critical bugs earlier in the development cycle.

Resistance to Change

There's often resistance due to misconceptions or fear of job loss. But in reality, automation frees up testers to focus on more complex tasks.

Common Myths About Automated Testing

  • It’s too expensive: Not in the long run!
  • It’s complicated: No more than learning any new skill.

Common FAQs

  1. Do I need to know coding?
  2. Basic scripting knowledge helps but isn't mandatory.
  3. Will it replace manual testers?
  4. No, it complements their work.
  5. How quickly can I switch?
  6. Depends on your current setup and team adaptability.


So there you have it, folks! The world is moving towards automated testing, and if you don’t hop on, you might just miss the train. Are you ready to say goodbye to manual testing and hello to a more efficient future?

It was originally established in 1660 and since then has been a mainstay and essential part of communities across the length and breadth of the UK. The implementation of a flawed software system therefore had devastating far reaching consequences.
