In the world of QA, automated testing is becoming more and more popular. This can be confusing to employers, who aren’t sure how much automated testing they need, and whether it can replace manual testing completely. Some aren’t even sure what manual testing is, or how it differs from automation.
The reality is that manual testing is the cornerstone of a good Agile QA process and should have a strong presence in any Engineering team.
