SDET stands for Software Development Engineer in Test or Software Design Engineer in Test, this kind of role is originated from Microsoft and currently many organizations are demanding such SDET professionals who can participate in development of the application and also in testing of the software developed.

This is a discussion of a group of people representing companies, handzone experts, staffing, raise pressing questions about SDET title.
