QA:Stress testing, QA: load testing, QA: selenium

Today I learned about Stress testing which is when you intentionally tax a system or run a program overloaded, simulating a large quantity of users or intense application activity. The purpose of stress tests is to monitor how the

systems/applications react to being overloaded and identifying the tipping point where it can no longer handle the traffic, and seeing what will

happen at that point of being overloaded.

Some reasons for stress testing is, allows the test team to monitor system performance during failures, 2. To verify if the system prints meaning error messages while crashing or did it print some, and 3. To verify if unexpected failures do not cause security issues. random exceptions.

Load testing is a form of testing that monitors how an application runs during a load of users/application requests with usage representing the average/typical load, and anticipated “peak" loads.




There are 4 types of selenium: Selenium IDE, Selenium RC, web driver, and Selenium grid.

Selenium has many different creators but Jason Huggins is the main founder.

What is Quality Assurance? & the different topics

Today I learned about quality Assurance and all the topics that fall under that category,

Quality Assurance testers and technicians work by testing softwares for businesses or companies. Their job is to make sure that the software, and sometimes hardware, works the way that the client expects it to. QA testers can be hired for both new projects and upgrading or fixing legacy existing applications.

What to wear to an interview & what not to do or say during an interview

Today I learned at Techie Youth that if a job interview calls for you to wear professional, or business, attire. For men, this can mean a suit jacket and slacks with a shirt and tie or a sweater and button-down. For women, a blouse and dress pants, appropriate skirt, or a statement dress is good. I also learned what you shouldn’t say or do during an interview and some things you shouldn’t say is bad news about your other job, you shouldn’t ramble on about nonsense. Things you shouldn’t do is: show up late.(try to be 15 minutes early), you shouldn’t fidget, you also shouldn’t wear jeans. Some things you should do during an interview is you should sit up straight, answer questions clearly, do research about the company you’re applying to before you get to the interview, and make sure to ask questions, there are no ridiculous questions.
