About the Book

A few years ago, myself and Bernice Ruhland were having a similar problem. How do you help to develop someone who is new to testing?

We wanted to make a quick, easy-to-work through guide for people new to testing. Our target would be people who were considering a career in testing. But it would also be of use of people within IT who wanted to know more about the core skills of testing.

The book also needed to be free. Both Bernice and I have received a lot of help from other testers around the world on a spectrum of subjects, and we wanted to "pay it forward". Welcome to that book!
