  • Try to join the team as early as possible and be present at the meetings. In this case testers will know the project and its goals better and, as a result, functional testing, user interface testing, security testing and other works will be more effective.
  • Make notes of important things, tasks, project specificity. They help to quickly find the necessary information and do not ask the managers, developers and colleagues the same questions many times.
