What is CSTE?

CSTE stands for “Certified Software Test Engineer”.  The  Certified Software Tester(CSTE)  certification is intended to establish standards for initial qualification and provide direction for the Testing function through an aggressive educational program. It is an internationally recognized certification offered by QAI.


What is ISTQB?

ISTQB stands for "International Software Testing Qualifications Board." It offers internationally recognized certifications called "ISTQB Certified Tester."

Why should I take the certification? Is there any market value to the certification?

This is a very controversial topic and can be debated till death.

But here are a few pointers which might assist you in your decision.

  • Foremost nothing beats EXPERIENCE. No certification can provide the exposure and training you get while working on real time projects. PERIOD!
  • If you are a fresher, or are from a non-technical background and trying to get a job in the software industry, certification will HELP. Just think about it, as an employer, I do not have any other parameters to judge your technical caliber, so certification is a good start point.
  • If you are an experienced professional and looking for a job change, a certification will embellish your resume. More so, no matter how rich your experience may be, there will always be some new area of QA that you will learn while studying for the certification. But do not think that you will get a JOB just based on the certification.

1. What is Exploratory Testing?

 Exploratory testing is a hands-on approach in which testers are involved in minimum planning and maximum test execution. The planning involves the creation of a test charter, a short declaration of the scope of a short (1 to 2 hour) time-boxed test effort, the objectives and possible approaches to be used. The test design and test execution activities are performed in parallel typically without formally documenting the test conditions, test cases or test scripts. This does not mean that other, more formal testing techniques will not be used. For example, the tester may decide to use boundary value analysis but will think through and test the most important boundary values without necessarily writing them down. Some notes will be written during the exploratory-testing session, so that a report can be produced afterwards.


Perl is widely used in automation. It may not be the best programming languages in the world but its best suited for certain types of tasks. Let's discuss where & why Perl is used for Automation Testing

Storage Testing

How PERL is used in Automation Testing


What is Storage? Data stored in Files.

Suppose, we have a Storage related Test Case where we have to write data on one partition, read it & verify that the data is written correctly.

This can be done manually, but can a manual tester perform the same 10000 times? It will be a nightmare! We need automation
