About Nishu Miglani's family

I belong to family of professionals . My Father was Civil Engineer , he worked for Indian Railways as Permanent way Inspector .My Eldest brother is a Doctor , Second brother is a production engineer and my sister is a scientist .
Required Reading
i would recommend following few books in no particular order 1. Lessons learned in software testing by CEM KANER, JAMES BACH 2. How we test software at microsoft by ALAN PAGE and KEN JOHNSTON 3. Perfect software and other illusions about testing by GERALD M WEINBURG is useful
A Fine Balance:

Tech trends to watch out for
Previously majorly manual testing was the major method of testing implemented by most of the companies. Recently, Automation & Performance Testing is replacing most of the Manual Testing Applications. Modern Tools like HP QTP; HP Loadrunner ; RFT; Selenium; Junit are in demand.
Most Important Lessons
1. Stay ahead of time always 2. Knowledge is power so continuously upgrade your skill/domain and be master /champion of your field 3. Never compromise on perfection and plan your life's short term , medium and log term goals well in advance 4. Be systematic and goal oriented
Degrees that Matter
Hands on experience is always preferred but however certain ISTQB / Brainbench certifications or trainings will help to keep upgraded. Also, tool / product specific certifications will help.
Areas for the Future
from the career prospective specialization in Automation / Performance Testing / hands on expertise on recent tools is must.
