How does one develop a Quality Control process?
I'm new to testing. I recently work for a company that has a video game themed website. So they have a lot of sponsored ads (multimedia), blogs, forums, videos and tons of articles and links. I'm their first tester - ever.
The company is guilty of pushing things live without testing and have had a lot browser compatibility issues. I was hired as a QA but after reading a lot of posts here, I realize they don't need QA but QC.
Their goal of hiring me is to test before pushing anything live - mostly looking for browser issues - most importantly that the Ads work and clients don't call them saying ads look like crap on their computer (usually running IE6).
My questions are:
1 - Is there a way I can automate this type of testing?
2 - What kind of testing methodology do I need to create - and how?
3 - Test scripts - Do I really need them?
4 - what types of tools will I need to really test their site?
Thanks for taking the time to read this post.
Re: How does one develop a Quality Control process?
Do you have <u>any</u> background in testing? Because the questions you ask are really fundamental to the Software Test environment.
If you do not, then asking those questions here is a little like going to a site devoted to any other profession, and asking people to - basically - tell you everything they know.
1. Of course
2. It depends - the "how" requires you to do some homework.
3. Of course. Without test scripts, it's all exploratory (or probably haphazard) testing.
4. Potentially, any of of a large number that handle web testing.
