Break Out Of The Rut
Are you in a rut? Is your time wasted checking compliance to incomprehensible requirements? Are you shackled to test coverage models? This tutorial helps break testers out of their bonds. Industry veteran Rob Sabourin shows how you can uncover great testing ideas. This interactive tutorial blends dynamic exercises with real world examples teaching important concepts which can be applied right away.
Collect Test Ideas From Many Sources
The tutorial explores a rich mosaic of test sources. Ideas can emerge from explicit, implied, incomplete and even out of date requirements. Testers will learn how software designs can expose product weakness. Discover usage scenario test ideas by talking with customers, operators and system administrators. Test experiments can be inspired by products quality characteristics. User stories can reveal important acceptance tests. Cross functional tests help unearth resource contention risks. Static analysis can help testers find out about concealed product weakness which testing attacks may exploit. Test ideas can come from how similar systems or projects have failed. You will learn how various bug taxonomies can highlight new testing ideas. Other sources include: state models, control flow, data and system environment.
Tried And Trusted Approaches
Robert helps testers get out of the rut, think outside the box and uncover valuable tests from unlikely places. Many real world case studies and fully worked out examples are provided to let you get started right away.
