After having refuted the argument that anybody can test and that Software Testing is not technical, it shouldn’t be difficult to grasp why I don’t believe that testing is easier than programming either.
Firstly, because, as I stressed in a previous article, in order to work effectively as a tester, you need to have a testing mindset.
Which is not easy at all.
Secondly, because, as I already explained, you need technical (yes!) expertise to master different testing techniques, types of testing, systems, business domains, etc.
Which is anything but trivial.
Last but not least, because believing that testing is easier than programming means belittling testing, which, in turn, implies underrating quality.
Is this what you mean?
