Software Testing Weekly


ISSUE 78  July 2nd 2021




Welcome to the 78th issue!

Another week brings another great resource that I want to share with you.

This time it's the collection of 22 simple truths of Software Testing and Automation that Gaurav Singh has just put together.

I love it.

Happy testing!
