[sharing] alpha and beta testing

:point_right: What is alpha testing?

Before you ship the software to the customers, the internal testing team performs alpha testing. Alpha testing is part of the user acceptance testing. Its goal is to identify bugs before the customers start using the software.

:point_right: What is beta testing?

Once you ship the software to the customers after alpha testing, the software’s actual users perform the beta testing in a real production environment. It is one of the final components of user acceptance testing. Beta testing is helpful to get feedback from real people using your software in real environments.
