State of Testing Survey 2016

Time flies and the State of Testing Survey 2016 is coming around the corner. I hope you guys participated in the previous state of testing survey to provide the software testing community with useful insights in our community. In the previous testing survey from 2015 more than 900 people from all over the world participated. In 2013, 600 participants completed the survey and the goal for the 2016 survey is to reach more than 1000 participants. If you like to contribute to this survey and to spread the word about it, you can either blog, tweet or talk about it on the social media platforms of your choice. While helping to spread the word about the survey, your blog will be listed as project collaborator and will show the community that you care about software testing and that you support the community. To get more information about it visit the survey page and send the survey team a message to ask for more information and to inform them, that you are participating in spreading the word.

  • Demographics of software testers who participated in the survey.
  • Salary of software testers.
  • How software testers work and how their work life changed.
  • The size of the test team within the company.
  • Many more interesting information.

To get even more details for the 2016 state of testing survey, I want to raise the awareness for the survey and to remind you to complete it when it is online on the 7th of January 2016 at If you follow the link you can use the reminder function to get notified when the survey is online.

I already had the chance to review the questions for the 2016 state of testing survey and the questions are looking good and will help our craft to get the latest insights in the different industries where we are working in.
