Automation & Tooling




Test Cases



Test Ideas

  • Are you running out of test ideas? The software testing community are a smart bunch of people with plenty of experience. We gathered several software testing test ideas to spark tests for regression testing, API testing, exploratory testing, mobile app testing, data migration testing, release testing, your next bug bash and more! Read Software Testing Test Ideas Hive Mind (STTIHM). 🐝

Test Planning

  • I spotted a book that wasn't on my radar. Writing Test Plans Made Easy by Wayne Roseberry. We've added it to the Software Testing Books wiki. And if you happen to know a good testing book feel free to update that wiki. Someone in the community could benefit from your recommendation.


Have a good week.
