    both have good future...but it depend on you..in which field you are interested..if you want to choose s a software developer then you be a strong knowledge about C and C++ or DOT NET or JAVA...but if you want to go in testing field then you should have only basic knowledge about C language and about your graduation...

    Hi,


    As a Fresher , its a good start for both developer and Tester

    So don't fluctuate between these both roles

    Don't get into support work . Its not good and will not get growth in future

    Development and Testing both are equally weighed

    # Development will involve :

    coding activity , writing code based on the requirments
    More Hectic Work
    Onsite opportunity takes time

    # Testing involves :

    Testing the developed code
    More concentration required
    Hectic
    Onsite opportunity in earlier period

    hi friend,

    as you are in a dielema of choosing your career in software testing or software developer.

    what a software tester does:-

    1. Software testing can be characterized as any activity that involves evaluating a program to determine whether or not it meets the specified requirements.

    2. Many software testers have a strong background in programming and technical skills, but this is not always required.

    3. Essentially, testing a program is an art, and can be done by people who have a limited understanding of the program.

    what a software developer does:-

    1. Software developers create program-based goods and services for companies or consumers.

    2. They coordinate the production of their products by choosing graphics creators, content providers, programmers, and any other specialist that is required to build the program.

    3. The developers are also typically responsible for the final presentation and distribution of the product.


    so, i suggest you to have your career in developer field as it would be challenging and would have a good career.

    thanking you.

    $$ HI $$



    $$ Both are good $$

    $_$ You can go for any one of these two because both will give a good future $_$



    $_$ The Testing seems to be less stress than Developer $_$


    $_$ If you have very good knowledge in programming and if you are interested then it is best to take Developer $_$


    $_$ If you select Developer then you can see abroad opportunities than Testing $_$


    $_$ But it is advisable not to go as support where you won't see growth $_$


    $_$ Both Testing and Developer will give you same pay so you have to decide it $_$






    $$ Thank you $$

    Hi,

    This is really a good question.Many fresher have this confusion.

    If you want a challenging career choose developing.And if you want to explore in technology as well you can go for developing.

    But if you a want a relaxed and job with out stress you can go for software testing.

    Testing is easy compared to developing.

    For developing you need to keep on updating your skills as the technology explores.

    Developing would be better if you are kind of technology loving person.

    GOOD LUCK!!!

    Thanks,

    Re: Which job to select between Software Tester and Software Developer? Which one will give us a better future?

    Hey

    Normally people consider software development as very good and a respectable job. But i really dont find any thing wrong with software testing.

    Now a days testing people are getting projects where as other stream guys are just sitting on bench. Both are equally nice and i consider all jobs equal.

    I would go for testing any day any time. It also has a very good future .

    My suggestion go for testing . Still its your wish.

    I would like to add one more sentence a developer develops it has to be tested by a tester before it goes to the client so a tester has an even more important work than a developer that is according to me

    Thank you

    Which to pick either package tester or package developer that profession are going to be favorable to Pine Tree State.friend it totally depend upon you ,always you're to suppose deeply with reasons that profession are going to be viable nowadays or future to you.which is fascinating to you,through that you may get excellent expertise you're to evaluate.as a profession each ar sensible and have equal standing currently you decide the viable chair for you.

    You can opt for anyone of those 2 as a result of each can provides a sensible future The Testing appears to be less stress than Developer
    If you've got superb information in programming and if you're interested then it's best to require Developer
    If you decide on Developer then you'll be able to see abroad opportunities than Testing
    however it's well to not go as support wherever you will not see growth

    Normally individuals think about package development as superb and a decent job. however i actually dont notice any factor wrong with package testing.

    currently a days testing individuals are becoming comes wherever as alternative stream guys ar simply sitting on bench. each ar equally nice and that i think about all jobs equal.

    i'd opt for testing any day any time. It conjointly incorporates a superb future .

    My suggestion opt for testing . Still its your want.

    i'd prefer to add {one additional|another|an additional|a new|an extra|an added} sentence a developer develops it's to be tested by a tester before it goes to the shopper thus a tester has a fair more necessary work than a developer that's in keeping with Pine Tree State.

    Hi friend,
    Hope you are in good health and good state of mind!

    See,it depends entirely on your area of interest.

    --> If you are mad about Programming,then go for Software Developer.
    The main job of a S/W Developer is to sit and do the coding part of the Software.


    --> But if you are not so much interested in the programming,then you can go for Software Testing job.
    In this you need to prepare Test Cases and enter them as the Input to the Software.
    Then you check whether the Output that is being produced by the Software is correct or not.
    That is,you try to see whether the Software is functioning correctly or not.


    Generally Software Developers get a Higher Package as compared to Software Tester.

    Bye
