Turbulent development projects experience almost daily requirement changes, user interface modifications, and the continual integration of new functions, features, and technologies. Keep your testing efforts on track while reacting to changing priorities, technologies, and user needs. This interactive workshop offers a unique set of tools to help you cope with, and perhaps even flourish in what may seem to be a totally chaotic environment. Practice dynamic test planning, test idea development and test triage.
Get ready for almost anything they can throw at you. Learn to identify, organize, and prioritize your testing “ideas”. Adapt the testing focus as priorities change. Decide on purpose what not to test — not just because the clock ran out! Just-In-Time Testing (JIT) approaches are successfully applied to many types of software projects — commercial off-the-shelf applications, agile and iterative development environments, mission-critical business systems, and just about any Web application. Real examples demonstrate how JIT either replaces or complements more traditional approaches.
Examples are drawn from insurance, banking, telecommunications, medical, and other industries. The tutorial is packed with interactive exercises in which students work together in small groups to apply JIT concepts.
Just In Time Testing received the EUROSTAR BEST TUTORIAL award in 2010.
When the workshop is completed, the attendees will be able to:
- Generate many different types of great testing ideas
- Triage testing and do dynamic test planning
- Implement effective decision making
- Do session based exploratory testing
- Work with minimal up front documentation
Target audience: Anyone who works in fast-paced development environments, including test engineers, test managers, developers, QA engineers, and all software managers.
