What is STT (Software Testing Tricks)?

It is intended to be the best software testing blog for new and experienced testers alike, and this site is dedicated to helping testers (including the author) learn the skills of testing, share their experiences and envision a better future for software testers by bringing respect to the craft of testing.

Who am I (the author)?

My name is Debasis Pradhan, a Software Testing Consultant by profession (10+ years) and a Tester by passion (25+ years)! I write "Software Testing Tricks" to share some of my interesting experiences with the fellow testers. I am a self-identified Context-Driven Tester who is practicing Exploratory Testing for more than 6 years now, with good amount of success. I started "Software Testing Tricks" back in 2006 as an experimental project to test my own writing and story telling skills and suddenly I realized that I have attracted readers who like my writing. This forced me to continue blogging. I blog to learn, to help others learn, to share my experience, to help others share their experiences, to share my views, to help others share their views, to gain exposure to the current happenings of the testing world, to help others in doing so, and last but not the least to build credibility and reputation as a skilled tester in the International Testing Community.
