Why is the State of testing survey valuable?

In order to measure the level of development of our craft we need to make a stop sometimes and gather some data and analyze it, just like in everything else. The survey helps us benchmark our progress as a community and as specialists as well.

What data is gathered in the state of testing survey ?

To answer this question you could simply review the last years results and see for your self here:

State of testing 2015 results

You will see there’s literally tons of valuable information there that will be interesting to learn like:

  • How are testing professionals split around the world?
  • Average salaries
  • Commonly used processes, software development methodologies
  • What skills do testers find valuable?
  • How to testers learn new skills?
  • What percent of the tests is automated, or exploratory etc.

Where can I take the survey for 2016?

The survey is now live and available for you to take on the official site of its creators. To star it just navigate here:
