Recently, we have hosted Managing Director of House of Test Ilari Henrik Aegerter, who visited us and delivered a special workshop for Quality Tech Lab’s team.

In addition to the special training, Ilari Henrik spoke about the importance of books. In particular, he highlighted the value of professional literature, as people working in the field share their experiences and thoughts.

Aegerter confesses it is one of his hobbies to collect testing books. The software guru says he buys all testing books that he can get his hands on, “Also the horrible ones, and trust me there are so many horrible ones”, says Ilari Henrik.

Reading books about software testing can be a very valuable addition to any developer’s toolkit. Books on the topic provide an overview of various software testing methodologies and tools, as well as share real-world experience and insights that can help improve your skills.

“Some of the most common difficulties we face in software testing today were solved 60 years ago. So, if you are dealing with software testing, one of the best things to strengthen your skills is reading books about software testing”, says Aegerter.

Aegerter advised which books to read if you want to strengthen your skills in software testing. The software testing engineer assures, that even the books that were written some 20 – 30 years ago are still worth reading. Some of them have still managed to preserve modern text and expose common issues.
