Mind Map: Tools for Testers

With this edition of LogiGear Magazine, we introduce a new feature, Mind Map.

A mind map is a diagram, usually devoted to a single concept, used to visually organize related information, often in a hierarchical or interconnected, web-like fashion.

This edition’s mind map, created by Sudhamshu Rao, focuses on tools that are available to help you in your testing.

The original map, as well as its downloadable source code (which can be managed in a mind-mapping application, such as XMind), is available from TestInsane.com.
