🎵 Quality is in the air 🎶

Quality of a product is vital whether it is software development or any product. The question is how to bring quality within a team?

IT is evolving and as a team, we tend to be busy delivering and it’s easy to miss out on quality, but this is a no-brainer. The more we bring quality into the team, the more positive outcomes come our way.

We need to think and plan how to go ahead with initiating and maintaining quality in teams. It is a great value add, helps customer retention, and gives…


As testers, we tend to follow various strategies and approaches to aim for optimum quality. But one process that is really interesting is the software testing life cycle (STLC). It is a process where the tester’s end goal is to efficiently meet the software quality standards. The steps within the STLC are six systematic approaches: requirement analysis, test planning, test case development, environment setup, test execution and test cycle closure. You may already be using a majority of these steps within your team! …

In this blog, I will be taking you through Waterfall vs. Agile vs. Scrum vs. Kanban methodologies and…

Testing, testing… What is software testing? 🤔 Software testing is a process to assess the functionality of an application with an aim to find whether the developed software has met the specified client requirement(s) or not. Plus, to identify whether the product is defect-free in order to produce a quality product.

Let me put it simpler: When I go shopping, I find the goods I like and try them on. The questions that arise in my head then are: Does it suit me? Is the color good? Is the material good enough or will it shrink after a wash? Will…


Accessibility means that people with disabilities can access the same things as those without a disability.

I would like to start with a question: “What makes us who we are?”

Each of you reading this and each of the 7.2 billion people on Earth, have a personality type of some description. We develop certain traits from childhood and although we may lose some and/or develop new ones, we typically rely on these characteristics on a daily basis.

So what is a trait? In psychology this is defined as “a particular characteristic that can produce a particular type of behaviour”.

Is it essential to have certain traits, especially in what is now a global village that is…
