Tips to Track and Hunt Bugs

You might be curious to know how to track and eliminate them. Well, experienced and skilled testers might already know how to track most of these bugs and fix them. Those who don’t have strong knowledge of how to find bugs can refer to the below strategy. By having a strategy in mind, you can easily track and hunt bugs in your web application. But, a successful strategy requires proper planning, management, and discipline.

Tips on how to find exceptional bugs:

  • Lateral thinking - Lateral thinking is when you solve a problem by an indirect approach, and it usually involves seeing the issue in a new way that no one else has previously. Essentially, it’s examining a problem with a creative mindset. After all, it’s hard to find bugs without thinking outside the box.
  • Communication skills - The ability to communicate with other members of the team is essential for any exploratory tester. This allows you to coordinate with additional inspectors, determining who will work on a particular aspect of the testing, so you do not overlook any part.
  • Technical skills - Some types of testing do not require vast technical skills, only a familiarity with the basics. But exploratory testing may look at the full stack, from the user interface to the layers of software underneath, so you must have the skills to understand the programs and general coding.
