REQUIREMENT OF CODING/PROGRAMMING KNOWLEDGE IN MANUAL TESTING



I am writing this article to brief better understanding about requirement of coding/programming knowledge in manual testing. In these days there is very good opportunity for manual testers who have also knowledge of languages like Java, SQL, technology like Web Services, tools like Selenium, Test Complete, etc.




Maximum people choose testing career because they think there is no requirement of coding/programming knowledge in manual testing even maximum manual tester thinks that there is no requirement of coding/programming knowledge in manual testing. They afraid to do coding and think if they have knowledge about programming/coding so why not they must become a developer.

I want to share my views for those who thinks there is no requirement of coding/programming knowledge in manual testing, if you have coding/programming knowledge you can understand the software in a better way i.e. about its architecture, its implementation, etc.

We all know that testing is not only to verify bugs, defects, faults and issues in a product or an application even it is to deliver a quality to the end user. So if we want to check quality of a thing we must have knowledge about its external architecture as well as internal architecture.



A software product's internal architecture are always programs, coding, logics, databases, etc. So if anybody wants to verify/validate the internal architecture of a software product then s/he must have knowledge about the things like programs, coding, logics, databases, etc.



At last, because of above reasons I agreed that a software tester must have knowledge about programming or say software internal architecture.
