What do I need to start from zero in automated testing?



  • I am new to testing. I need to learn because I have an opportunity to work in this field in the the future. I would like to know what I need to get started. Preferably, I would like to study automated testing. How much time will it take for someone who only knows a little programming and no testing?

    Tools, tutorials, courses (free or YouTube), all information is welcome. In the beginning, I only need to learn the basics, not be an expert.



  • There are a ton of websites and blogs devoted to testing. You could start there.

    A quick search using Google for something like "software testing" would also be a good way to get started.

    You might choose to start with The Association for Software Testing: http://www.associationforsoftwaretesting.org/ They have excellent reading and training resources.

    Other useful sites are http://www.sqaforums.com and http://www.softwaretestingclub.com/ and of course here at SQA Stack Exchange.

    If you go to my blog at http://www.allthingsquality.com/ and click the "What People Are Writing" tab, you'll see a list of recent entries from blogs related to QA and Testing.

    Good luck.
