Let’s Get Basic: Manual Testing is the Beginning


Manual Testing has been looked down upon since the emergence of automation testing, although it is it’s building block. However, this presentation will return to the basics and remind individuals why Manual Testing is important and the tools that can be used to record these types of tests. Manual testing is not rigid, meaning there is more flexibility when it comes on to executing the test cases, individuals don’t need extensive coding experience or any coding experience at all. Furthermore, manual testing involves an analytical mindset and can assist in developing an individual's analytical skills. These are some of the many reasons why manual testing is important and should be one of the first things individuals being introduced to this area in technology be taught.
