Software Testing

Software testing is the process of evaluating and verifying that a software product or application matches the expected requirements and ensuring the software is defect-free. The main purpose of software testing is to identify errors, gaps or missing requirements in the product.

There are several different types of software testing, like acceptance testing, performance testing, stress testing and usability testing, that all work to meet certain goals. These goals can include finding and preventing errors, providing suggestions to make the software more efficient and user-friendly and ensuring the software product is reliable and consistent.

It is important for businesses to invest in software testing because it can prevent bugs, reduce development costs (as post-released errors are more expensive to fix but also harder to identify) and improve performance, which can lead to happier customers and clients as well as improved revenue.

By taking one of our courses for software testing and gaining an ISTQB certification, you can bring an important skillset to your current role – or move towards a career as a software testing specialist.
