What does a QA tester do and why should I study it?

The abbreviation for QA comes from the words Quality Assurance. A QA tester is the one who is responsible to make sure the quality and proper service of the software. The QA tester is the one who builds and plans different scripts, looks, and locates bugs, documents them, and alerts the software developers for them to fix them. The screening process needs be done in a very thorough way using critical thinking while paying attention to every single detail. The QA tester needs to understand what is going on inside the software while combining basic code knowledge, which we will learn in this program.

In the past, QA testing was preformed manually but lately there is an increase in using automated testing, that is more efficient. With automated testing the QA tester can run the tests over and over, using cutting edge automation testing tools. Due to this change, having knowledge of automation testing tools has become an integral part of the QA world.

A good QA tester with top skills and automation tools knowledge can have a huge impact on the quality of a product as well as the company’s name in the market and correspond with his/her salary and status in the company.
