If you give me an app to test I would ask questions to assess the context - and then if I really need to go ahead and test it - I would understand my mission - the time - the stakeholders to provide information - the kind of information that needs to be given - the impact of the information - the value people expect ...after all this - I begin running tests.

My co-founder Avinash Nishant isn't happy about it though. He thinks the positives were less highlighted. On the contrary, I think it is always good to get unbiased views. Yes the positives could have been highlighted but that will become merely a promotion of AppAchhi [...]

I am no coding expert to teach people how to write robust code - be it product code or test code. That disqualifies me from advising them how to do their job. I have found them to be hard to convince people unless you talk code. I can't convince [...]
