The end of job 'Software Tester'

By mark

In Australia, we still call people perform software testing "Testers". As we know from the book "How Google Tests Software", it is called "Software Engineer in Test" (SET) at Google. When I was in America last year, I saw many "SET" job ads on STARWEST conference.

Today, following a link from LinkedIn Update email, I was quite shocked that how quickly and big the change is: The number of SETs jobs are 10 times more than software testers
