At Infosys, resource person Mr. Kanwarpreet Singh on the topic of “Software and Automation Testing” took a session. Mr. Kanwarpreet talked about various testing principles and methodologies, which are being applied at Infosys nowadays. He stated that every software development group tests its products, yet delivered software always has defects. Test engineers strive to catch them before the product is released but they always creep in and they often reappear, even with the best manual testing processes. Test Automation software is the best way to increase the effectiveness, efficiency and coverage of software testing. Automated software testing has long been considered critical for big software development organizations but is often thought to be too expensive or difficult for smaller companies to implement.
The speaker emphasized that Software Testing has emerged as one of the key areas where students can build their career in industry. He also discussed regarding current IT trends, how to get placement, mantras for success and answered number of queries posed by the students.
