Testing

Recommended Posts

We all know that with programming, testing can be extremely important and something that you need to do especially if you have developed a fully custom software. But testing is also something that a lot of developers don't like to do because of how long it can take and how much effort it can take as well! Of course, even though it is a pain, testing can be a great thing to do because you could potentially come across some bugs, issues or even a feature that you didn't even think of to add. 

Have you ever built a custom software and done a lot of testing with it? Did you manage to come across any huge problems by doing your testing?

Error handling is common for programmers, although some problems are actually foreseen by the programmers during development that why they use some handlers and isolation codes but of course nobody is perfect. This is when it gets interesting and exciting, to actually find a way to solve an error that was not expected is a great skill improvement. But its an accomplishment only when you have your way on the error.

I have once built a Wireless Mine Detector Bot on my college years as a project. The problem that i have back then is the delay of signal from a transmitter to command the robot from a computer. What i did was i used a timer from VB as a signal repeater to solve the delay data transmit.

My greatest problem was when I created something big and it had a lot of error, that many so I needed to test out every single detail until I decided to start everything from scratch. Since that day I do small tasks and then test them out. Because finding an error in a huge script is hard. So I do it step by step.

Absolutely right. But we also know that testing is very important in programming. Specially when you are doing work for your client

Doing for yourself and doing for a client is an entirely different level. Might sound odd, but I try for the client more than for myself, and for obvious reasons.

Testing is the part of duty that gets me so lazy because you should check error like some semicolon, bugs and etc., which make so much time to do that's why I hire some people that I know to do that. Also for the better system after you check your system recheck it again because there are so many minor errors that hard to find thanks for this question I hope that we can help you do this thanks.

Testing is really crucial. I have been a beta tester and used tools such as selenium and QTP for testing purposes. Automation testing is much easier when compared to manual testing and you get the reports immediately. Manual testing involving going through the code thoroughly and making sure each line is executed at least once by taking into consideration many cases.

Where have you been a beta tester? I know there are some companies that pay you a great amount of money for doing these tests. Unless it's a videogame tester, because then it's highly unlikely to get paid.
