Why testers need their own IDE and what they should expect                                                                                                              

Abstract:  Nobody would expect a developer to write source code using a simple text editor. In fact, any developer would quit the job after two days if asked to do so. Developers have their Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for writing, building and debugging code. They use code analyzers and unit testing frameworks to automated as many repetitive tasks as possible. Somehow, testers are more willing to suffer and to accept the lack of tool support. We are already happy to work with an ALM tool that at least makes traceability easier for us. Sometime, we do not even have this comfort and our “IDE” is a well-known application suite from a company located in Redmond. Why are testers so forgiving? Are we all masochists or do we suffer from a lack of self-confidence? Our time is just as precious as the developers’ time. We need our own IDE! In our talk, we will present the must-have features that can make life easier for testers. To give you a taste: Autocompletion of text blocks is one of them. If you want to learn about the tester’s IDE, attend our presentation at the A4Q Global Testing Summit in 2022.
