I’m Vijay, the cool guy in the picture below ;-), working on this blog for the past 16+ years!

Vijay Shinde Software Testing Help

I’ve been in the software testing industry for over a decade now. I completed my graduation in B.E. Computer Science from a reputed Pune university and then started my career in software testing. I was passionate about this field right from the beginning and decided to start this blog (on Nov 2006) to share my knowledge and experience with the testing community.

I’m not a guru, rather I’m just a simple guy who always aspires to learn new things and works harder to make this place a better one for all especially our readers.

I consider myself the luckiest person because I’ve got a sweet loving family, awesome friends like you, and most importantly a line of work on this blog that always keeps me busy.

Apart from STH, I am also the co-founder of a technology startup called Trignus. My passion for the latest technologies also keeps me busy with my other tech startups.

Swati – Instructor and author


I’m Swati. I accidentally started testing in 2004, and since then have worked with at least 10 clients in 8 cities and 2 countries and am still counting. I am CSTE and CSQA certified. I love my job and the value it adds to software systems that millions use.

When I am not testing, or teaching testing, or writing about testing, you will find me at home, reading or enjoying a movie with my husband and 6-year old son.
