The Top 8 Software Testing Blogs

January 10, 2022 Joel Olawanle

If you work in software quality assurance or software testing, you probably look for ways to keep up with trends and improve your testing practices. One way is to follow the blogs of industry leaders. There are a number of blogs out there, though, and it can be tricky to find the best ones to focus on.

This article offers a roundup of eight testing blogs you should follow, based on factors such as update frequency, content quality, variety of topics, popularity, and author’s experience.



Google Testing Blog

Google Testing Blog

This blog grew out of the 2006 inaugural Google Test Automation Conference, which drew roughly one hundred fifty participants. Many people expressed an interest in learning from people who work in testing at Google, so Google launched its blog in January 2007 to share its experiences with the rest of the developer community and to exchange ideas about solutions to challenges.

The information published on this site is of the highest quality, having been authored by a variety of experienced Google testing specialists. Content is posted randomly throughout the year, with the three posts in 2021 being the fewest so far. Over 400 blog posts on topics like mutation testing and test flakiness are available.



TestGuild Blog

Joe Colantonio started TestGuild in 2010 with the purpose of helping others discover insights, tools, methods, and best practices that would help them speed up their automation, security, performance, and DevOps testing efforts. TestGuild is a blog, podcast, and online conference. It is an affordable software engineering education platform dedicated to helping testers and their organizations succeed in test automation.

Automation testing, performance testing, security testing, and software testing are all covered in this blog. There is no set schedule for new posts, but at least one is published every two months.

Key posts include “What is Automation Testing: The Ultimate Guide”, which explains the pitfalls of manual testing and the benefits of automation for both testers and developers, and “Top Free Automation Tools for Testing Desktop Applications (2021)”, which lists the top fifteen free automation testing tools for desktop applications and explains the pros and cons of each of them.

Content is generally updated as needed. When “Top Free Automation Tools for Testing Desktop Applications (2021)”) was published in 2019, White Framework was among the tools this article listed. It was later deprecated, though, and the post was updated in 2021 to reflect that change.


Software Testing Help

Software Testing Help Blog

Software Testing Help (STH) is one of the most popular blogs on software testing and quality assurance issues, with thousands of testing professionals visiting the blog every day for information. Vijay Shinde launched the blog in November 2006.

He has co-authored a chapter in the book How to Reduce the Cost of Software Testing and produced a software testing podcast for SoftwareTestPro.

Now he writes about continuous testing, the use of artificial intelligence in the testing world, and how to apply agile practices. Almost every working day, he publishes a new post in which he interviews some of the best software testers to hear their thoughts on a particular test topic.

The blog began in 2010, and Larsen has published over 1,300 blog posts with at least two posts per month and at least thirty-one posts per year since then. Posts offer information about software delivery, software development, software testing, and online test conferences, among other topics.
