The recently published State of Open Source Testing report – a collaboration between Tricentis, TestProject, SpecFlow, and Flood – was designed to capture a global snapshot of where the software testing industry stands today and track how open source testing trends will evolve in the years to come. The biggest survey of its kind this year, it explores whether there are any universal advantages – or challenges – to opting for open source testing rather than commercial offerings, and the nuances that surface when you take a more targeted look at open source testing across functional testing versus load testing and BDD. And, while some of the survey’s findings emphasised the expected, there were also some surprising statistics that change the general understanding of open source tool adoption in testing, and even the software testing discipline in general.

Plato emphasized education of the public as the single most important role for government — to assure a strong smart wealthy nation the public needs to be educated. Similarly, as Ben Gilad cited one CEO in Business Blindspots, “until you get the truth on the table, no matter how ugly it is, you are not in a position to deal with it.
