Testing in the Wild at 130km/h

Th15     Start Time : 14:15     End Time : 14:45

Imagine that your test data is driving 130km/h on the freeway, entering your country by boat or passing the boarder by truck, or parked on a road or in a parking lot.

Who said anything about masked test data, GDPR and test automation?

Nina and the testers had a somewhat different challenge in 2015, when the citizens of Denmark were discussing privacy and surveillance and didn’t want cameras everywhere to spy on them for no reason.

This is a story about thinking outside the box: why a standard system needs thorough testing, how you get a cop to write test cases – standing next to the freeway with a 4½ meter selfie stick – and testing in the Danish weather conditions.

It is also a story about analyzing film, pictures and spreadsheets, and about defect handling with a Canadian supplier. Not to mention puddles, hedges, motorcycle rally on the harbour and vandals.

How do you test that?

Key Takeaways:

  1. Test data is not always digital
  2. Standard systems are NOT something you DON’T test
  3. Thinking outside the box makes testing more fun and covers the test better
