As long as there is software development , there will always be software testing


Not at all in my opinion. Software testing is an art. Mechanisms to carry out testing may change but QA process will remain an intigral part of delivery cycle. Infact Test automation became a vital part of DevOps approach. At the same time Software tester need to keep himself updated with latest approaches and tools along with conventional functional testing skills. This is my personal opinion only, you may differ.
