Noob Here General Question from a Prospective Seller
I will eventually be selling software to the public. The software would be used on a computer. I had a developer create the software for me. After asking questions about starting my business, an attorney said that there were things I needed to consider that I had not considered the day before speaking with him.
I wondered where I could find software testing that would demonstrate that the software is fine and would not have any negative impact on a person's computer.
1. Is there such a thing?
2. Can you direct me to such a place?
You could hire a professional tester.
Would be interesting if there was a 3rd party certification process.
I think many companies have copped out by including "hold harmless" and "without warranty" clauses into their EULA.
I'm sort of thinking, maybe you need a more experienced counsel in this field. He should know what sort of certifications you need or find out which ones you need. And what clauses in the license agreement is needed to mitigate the ones you can't.
You can check the online freelancer sites Guru, oDesk. But first be aware/educated about what would be the output/deliverable of the testing done. No once can do fool proof testing or dev, but atleast get the end-user scenarios covered by testing.
Also, you can release a beta version (maybe to a limited set of people) and then fix the issues they report.
