State of Testing 2022

State of Testing Survey 2022 is live

Since 9 years, PractiTest and TeaTimeWithTesters are now running the annual State of Testing™ survey. Over the last years the survey provided unique insights into the testing craft around the world and helps us to shape our
work and community.

The feedback from the past years have improved the survey 2022. It’s now shorter and more precise.

What’s new?

This year, the survey is taking a closer look at the effects of Agile and DevOps might have on our productivity and our testing craft.

I highly recommend you take some minutes and to fill the survey to provide yet another awesome report for all of us.

Please follow this link to fill the survey!

Once the survey results are live, I will let you know on my blog.

If you are curious about the 2021 survey results, find them here.
