hi
i have just started my career as software engineer. the company put me in IVS unit in which they will give training in loadrunner tool which is i think part of performance testing. so i am bit confuse whether starting of career as a test engineer is good and also want to know the future scope and requirements of loadrunner tool?

Loadrunner is good to know. ANd performance skills are helpful in pure coding jobs. Many teams have a local performance expert.

thanks
bt performance testing is non functional testing and as per i knw only functional type of testing have pure coding. performance testing needs pure analytical skills.

First of all, having stronger analytical skills is a good thing. Second, there is scripting in performance testing which is often code.

absolutely right and agree with you. scripting like making virtual users in load runner that all needs programming skills. so is it better for my future pay and growth?

Better than what? It's better than being unemployed.

Seriously though. Nobody can predict what skills will be in demand in the future.

As for development being better than testing, it depends which you want to be doing.

Back to your question, you are early in your career. Any skill is going to be new and a benefit in the long run.
