This site is home to the Periodic Table of Testing

Quick links to blog posts below: 

The Big Test Theory is the place that I (Ady Stokes) put all my thoughts and ideas connected to the Periodic Table of Testing and a few other bits. Here you will find the latest version of the table and the elements scoping categories. 

I hope you enjoy it and please pop along to the blog.  Feel free to ask questions and challenge my thoughts.

This is a new site so if you find anything wrong or broken links please let me know.  Thanks. 

All opinions are my own unless credited.  Feel free to use the table in any way you find useful, but I'd appreciate you sharing with me what you do with it and crediting me please, thank you.
