It’s back to the basics folks! A classic at that – Verification Vs. Validation.
The following are some of the reasons why it is very important to understand the difference between Verification and Validation:
- It is a fundamental QA concept, therefore is almost the building block to being QA-cognizant
- It is a commonly asked interview question
- Certification syllabi (or is it syllabuses?) have a good amount of chapters revolving around this
- Finally and practically – since we testers do both – we might as well be experts at this.
