Software development implies knowledge, experience, talent, intellectual capacity and an art point; all these elements help to raise software quality. Software Testing is a critical area and one of the most effective ways to improve the quality of the software. This presentation will cover the importance of incorporating testing in the software development process.
First, we will talk about the impact of huge software bugs that caused great losses including loss of life, as well as an introduction to the main fundamentals of software testing focusing on automated testing. Following, we will demo a JMeter for load and stress testing.
