Economics of software testing, v.2.0


The continuation of Alexander Alexandrov's talk "Economics of software testing, v.2.0" where we will extend the field for discussions and discuss the issues of the economics of testing with the audience.

The main points of the talk: 

  • Exhaustive testing is not possible. 
  • Testing is as well an economic activity. 
  • Version 1.0, or What need to do. We work within a plan and evaluation, when a lack of resources, we ask to add them (extensive approach).
  • Version 2.0, or How need to do. We work within a plan and assessment as efficiently as possible (intensive approach).

The round table will be devoted to the discussion on how to proceed to version 2.0, analysing the following tasks and using reasonable labour costs efficiently, analysing: 

  • What the test cases we need (do we really need them?). 
  • What the test data we need.
  • What testers we need - a few strong ones (but expensive) or many of weak (but inexpensive). 
  • What kind of automation we need (do we need it at all), what tools, coverage.

How not to crash and burn on Scrum’s fast track of advantages: Scrum team testing organization and optimization when working with public sector customers


Amongst IT companies and project teams, in today’s world of software development, preference is being given ever more often to Agile methodologies of achieving visibility and transparency in software development and testing processes, improving their efficiency, and reducing project risks, which, as a result, yield a positive effect on the quality of the product. When applying Agile methodologies while working on projects, particularly for public sector customers, one must be prepared for unexpected challenges in forming the interaction of development and testing teams within the bounds of a project. In my report, listeners will get to find out how the paths for the solution of this specific problem, as well as others, were found in practice and how, considering all of the particularities in working with the public sector, to properly organize and stamp out a huge product’s the development and testing process.
