The survey, is the largest effort in the QA industry, to map the current state of the testing profession on a global scale. The information collected covers everything from demographics, technologies, methodologies, challenges to tools and future market predictions.

“This is by far the best survey of the testing industry. I always fill this out and I hope you will to!” Chris Kenst - Test Engineer at Laurel & Wolf, shared with his followers.
