Talk: From a Sow's Ear to a Silk Purse: Making the Most of what you've got in Software Testing
The test team has a greater influence on the success of testing than any single process, tool or technique. Yet, under-resourced and over-stretched, it can be a source of weakness.
James Lyndsay leads this double-length workshop, looking at effective techniques to help get the best out of your team, without increasing your budget or finding fewer bugs. You’ll look at ways of finding nuggets of time within your existing processes, and discuss how to use this time for better testing, rather than more testing. With an eye on motivation and morale, the workshop will give an overview of:
- Really cheap tools
- Communication within and around the team
- How to encourage learning, improvement, and knowledge transfer
- Automated metrics and reporting
- Reducing your tests without reducing your coverage
Delivered at EuroStar (special session) and the London SIGiST
