Just In Time Testing – Effective Testing Strategies
Turbulent development projects experience almost daily requirements modifications, changes to user interfaces, and the continual integration of new functions, features, and technologies. Rob Sabourin shares proven, practical techniques to keep your testing efforts on track while reacting to fast-paced projects with changing priorities, technologies, and user needs. Rob covers test planning techniques and organization strategies, scheduling and tracking, blending scripted and exploratory testing, identifying key project workflows, and using testing and test management tools. Learn how to create key decision-making workflows for test prioritization and bug triage, adapt testing focus as priorities change, identify technical risks, and respect business priorities. Take away a new perspective on your testing challenges and discover ways to take control of the situation—rather than to be controlled by it. This workshop includes interactive group activities to teach about coming up with great test ideas and test prioritization. Several case studies applying these techniques to real world projects will be included.
