Revision as of 18:19, 10 January 2019

Having found the official tutorials sometimes hard to understand and ambiguous, my aim was to make these tutorials simple to understand; I hope that I have achieved that and you find them helpful.

What I have written here is from personal experience; if I cannot do it myself, then I cannot write about it.

The guides cover most of the basic things that you will need to know, to become a useful and proficient tester. There are some useful scripts in the Miscellaneous section, which will automate the setting up of a working environment, as described in the guides, along with some scripts to update your local source tree, Etc.

The main section of each guide is based on the Windows environment, but Linux users will find Unix subsections that cover there environment also.
