Hello there! 👋
Welcome the 46th edition of Software Testing Notes, a weekly newsletter featuring must-read content on Software Testing. I hope this week has been good for you so far.
Last week, Ministry of Testing’s twitter account posted a great question about What should a Test Report NOT include?. It already has great many responses from the testing community. For me, it’s about adding too many happy path test scenarios just to make reports more green and increase the successful pass tests count, kind of makes these reports useless if you really think about it. As it increases the hours put preparing it and it don’t provide clear picture of your product.
Without further ado, lets dig into this week’s issue. I have lots of nice reads for you this week, let me know what your favorite is!
