I am new to this forum and Software Testing. I graduated in Computer Science but have worked very few days in programming( VB 6 with SQL).
I am now working as a Program Coordinator using Project 2003 in Govt. Hence I don’t have IT environment in my office. I would like to persue my career in Software Testing. I am more interested in Testing Web Sites and Web Applications.
Can someone guide me:
1) to any online training courses ( There are plenty online courses on the web. Not sure which is reliable). The place I live does not have good Software Testing courses
2) I need to have hands on training. I did download few web testing tools. But not sure where to start.
3) What are the “hot” tools I should know to get a break into web testing
First of all learn about testing and I do not mean testing automation tools but the knowledge that you need to be a Tester. Automation tools are used by some testers, not all. If all you are interested in is the automation tools you may want to look at being a developer rather than a tester.
A couple of books that may give you some background in testing
