According to my opinion Development job is a great job but Testing job is a Divine job. For every project or product before releasing we have to do the testing becoz it will more helpful to the customers.Before testing if we release the product in the market it will harmful to the company as well as the customers

Both are great in their respective ways but i usually think being a testing engineer requires more skill to handle different situations.They should have the ability to say no to others with valid reason and it requires knowledge as well as guts to face others which usually developers don't do.It is vast and it pushes you to think a situation from different point of view and find out the best among them to mark the product unique in the market.

According to my opinion , Testing is the backbone for the software industry. Because, every s/w product release is done after testing only.

By doing testing itself we can judge that the product is free of defects/bugs, and also for the customers satisfaction.

"Prevention is better than cure" i.e if we remove bugs before released we get less maintenance cost for company

Providing a quality product to end customer makes me proud and happy. Acting as an end user, its a privilege and test engineer get paid when you test it. Ex: Someone does brewing and they asking us to taste it then give feedback. So its joy not a worry.
