comment Should I use a code repository if I am the only one working on a project?
And also git remote add {github address}; git push; now you have a backup.

cd where_the_code_is; git init; git add .; git commit-m"Initial Commit" Now you have source control. That's a low barrier!

Updated to put the German piece in the title that is key. Question - are you looking for an english or german word? If English what's the german part about?

You can tag a commit with "v1.0" and then refer to the commit by that tag. See git-scm.com/book/en/v2/Git-Basics-Tagging

You need to set up reasonable testing and QA environments. Expect this to take weeks.

Also I am trying to answer the question "what gets testers invested", but not "what makes a tester be effective" which are different but related questions (hence me thinking not a dupe).

Also some of these are potential culture changers as in many organizations testers are considered "2nd class citizens". This is very common in our industry. To actually change that - change is hard - using the points I've listed may help.

No not all. These are ideas. I will stand by them all though and in my current job as a Quality Engineer they've all been important points. ymmv and imho of course.

It does not seem the same to me imho. From decades of personal development and qa experience I see them as related but distinct questions.
