Testing is one of the most crucial parts of software development, but it's often neglected because seeing if something works is less sexy than building it in the first place. Whether you're an amateur developer working on a mobile app or a corporate manager with a large-scale project in mind, remember these guidelines to ensure your testing process goes smoothly.
