The 2023 State of Testing™ Survey

The 10th State of Testing™ Survey results are here. Get your copy.

Beyond the usual demographics we compare year to year, we have also decided to use the crowdsourcing wisdom of the QA community to explore two new concepts:

  • The shift to Agile and DevOps and their impact on our productivity and our testing.
  • The consequences of automation adoption in regard to current processes, people, and platforms.

What is State of Testing™?

The State of Testing™ initiative seeks to identify the existing characteristics, practices, and challenges facing the testing community today in hopes to shed light and provoke a fruitful discussion towards improvement.

The final report is translated into several languages and shared globally, further expanding the reach and impact this report has on all of us in the QA world.

Each year the amount of participants has increased, and the final report becomes even more valuable as a culminated reflection of testing trends, challenges, and characteristics.
