I will never mention “Manual Tester” again

The industry seems to think that a manual tester is a bad tester compared to a technical tester.

That could not be more wrong.

The definition of a good tester is ione that can:
1.Create a test design that gives “What to test”, What NOT to test”, “Why not test that”, “How to test”, “are we testing enough”
2.Write effectice test cases or/and Test Charters.
3.Lead other testers in the work

4.Write and drive a controlled bug report process.

5.Report the right things to the right people in the right way so they are informed.

Those things are what defines a GOOD TESTER, not if the test cases are executed manually or automated, to automate testcases we have developers.
