I was at Agile testing days in Potsdam as a speaker. The conference is quite a nice experience as a speaker. I don't know the numbers, but I think it…
I have now presented about Developers Exploratory Testing at three conferences, Lets Test 2012 (Stockholm), CAST 2012 (San Jose) and Agile 2012 (Dallas). I still have Agile Testing Days 2012 (Berlin) in November, but I have figured out that the material will probably evolve enough before that time so I might as well publish my current material.
I have gotten very good response from my presentations with really interesting questions during Q&A sessions and also hallway discussions with plenty of people regarding the approach we are having on the team being responsible for quality. (more…)
I got some positive response about DET that I wrote on my blog and in my CAST session proposal, so I thought I would elaborate a little on where I think this could be going. I will probably cover more hands on aspects in the coming weeks, but I really want to explain a vision I have around it first.
How about including the business stakeholders?
In my current project, I started to involve our main business stakeholders in our test sessions from the start when I got involved. And they have gotten really excited about attending once a week. (more…)
There is a common practice in our company to perform Developers Exploratory Testing sessions, explained by my colleague Davor here. The cool thing is that this way of performing higher level testing has actually become accepted by our developers, and they really enjoy it.
In my current work of developing our organization wide practices for quality, I have made a deep dive into how DET is carried out on a regular basis. What I have seen is that DET is accepted and acknowledged as a valuable practice, however it is not really carried out in its full potential. There are many details and aspects of it to work on, especially regarding reporting and follow-up.
The other day I was asked to help one of our teams with a DET session. (more…)
