The Gap Between Academic Research and Industrial Practice in Software Testing

Zoltan Micskei

Hungarian Software Testing Forum (HUSTEF) talk (2014-10-30)


In software engineering, there is always a gap between the current research topics and the everyday industrial practice. However, in my experience this gap is much wider in software testing, e.g. advanced testing techniques seldom reach everyday testers. This gap can be attributed to several factors, the talk will highlight education and tools from the possible causes. In order to illustrate this gap the talk will collect and compere the topics of recent academic and industrial testing related conferences. My goal is to offer a glimpse into recent software testing research topics to practitioners, and start a discussion whether there is really a wide gap between academy and industry.



Support material of collected paper/talk titles and abstracts from academic and industrial conferences.
