    Software Tester :

    Tester Mean Which Ensure That Project Is Fulfilled Our Client Requirement Or Not, And Also They Have Tested The Project Means Project Workable Or Not......

    A tester tests the code which the developer has written. I will explain you in brief:

    Development:

    There are different languages with which we can write codes, like C, C++, JAVA, ASP.NET e.t.c. Basically, using these codes, many software projects like softwares or web pages are made. There may be errors or not and the developer is not bothered on it. If the code works, then the developer moves to next phase.

    Tester:

    Tester ensures that there are no errors on the project. They will test manually or automaticallyusing different key inputs and if any errors are found, it is reported.

    TESTING JOB

    You have to validate the software after applying some operation on it.In this job a team of tester will test the function of a software to compare it with the desire software or to remove errors from it

    DEVELOPMENT JOB

    In this job you have to design a particular software,here you have to design certain modules such as data flow diagram...entity relationship diagram and many more..This is quite tough job as compare to testing job

    Hello friend,
    In a software field both testing and development are equally important.


    TESTING:In this you have to test the functionality of the software and you have to design test cases for the project and specify the inputs and outputs.The tester not at all bothered about the code implementation he is only particular about functionality of it and is giving efficient results are not.

    Software Developer:He is the person who develops the code.He should have strong programming knowledge and also understand the Design of the project.The code should be very efficient and should give efficient results.

    in software company testing job is to testify a particular software project and efficiency and product validation of coding and project certification.... Testing is to ensure the project from errors and desired results should be generated from project programming.. Before the project is given to clients it is tested for errors and result oriented study is carried out and in what way the project is successful and any improvements are to be done is reported to developers or software engineers... Developers are the people who develop programming code and software utility tools... Program code and software is researched and design of software is done by developers
