Teaching devs testing or testers learning programming?

And if you feel there is no need for testers to be technical, that’s another discussion entirely

I feel teaching devs testing is more of an attitude training

That’s the difference between testers and developers, how they approach the problem and the end goal

Naturally there’s a lot of fundamentals, techniques and concepts but what’s more difficult is the attitude

For testers learning programming, mostly its acquiring another skill, rather revisiting a skill they tried to learn before

For some it’s easier said than done, but in the end it is a skill like any other

And in case programming is frightening for you, that’s another discussion too.

Personally I’ve always felt changing an attitude is much harder than acquiring a skill, probably this would depend on a lot of other things as well
