Best Practice ?!

Please share best practices for testing team?, testing centralized team?, knowledge sharing for testers?, etc – how many times have we all heard about this or have seen this as a discussion topic in various forums.

I wonder isn’t it a best practice by best practicing testers to share their best practice on Google?

Or should someone write a paper about Best practices to search in Google for best practices in testing?

Sharath,
We need to wait for the day when people would write a detailed Best Practice on "How to make a practice Best Practice" and follow that practice as the BEST PRACTICE.

Best practice or Best Practise?

Sharath Byregowda said...

Thanks for observing that Pradeep. Your observation made me look up for the actual meaning and the word and I found "Difficult English Words Practise / Practice

In many parts of the English speaking world (UK, Ireland, Australia, Canada, and South Africa) “practice” is the noun, “practise” the verb. However, in the U.S.A the spelling “practice” is more often used for both the noun and the verb. Contrary to popular belief a significant minority of the American population also observe the distinction. If you are not sure about what a verb or noun is, it might be safer to just use the spelling "practice", as many Americans do!"

Though I do not know what we Indians should use...I shall stick to practice and change it accordingly.

But I wonder how did the spell check in the editor missed to point it?

Hi Sharath,
I get why you are angry? I kept thinking about it for so long. Here is my view - http://curioustester.blogspot.com/2009/10/best-practices-and-fairness-cream-ads.html.

Practice is spelled in US English and Practise in UK English.

Happy Defying,
