An introduction to software testing types

Betatalks #99

Bram and Jelle talk about testing types. They discuss the different types of software testing and how to prioritize them effectively and how to choose the right testing strategy for development needs. They introduce the concept of the testing pyramid, which categorizes tests into layers from unit tests at the base to manual testing at the top. They explain that unit tests should make up the bulk of testing due to their automation, while manual testing requires more time and resources so it should be minimized. Manual testing is used before automating tests when first developing a new feature. They discuss their different approaches with Jelle (Software developer) focusing initially on unit tests and Bram (Quality Assurance engineer) on manual testing. They agree on the importance of having common definitions for test types within a team to facilitate effective planning and discussion.
