Окончила БГУИР г. Минск. Около 12 лет в IT, из них более 7 занимаюсь тестированием.
Quality of Quality Assurance
Most of us started QA career in the same way: with a set of “magic” techniques and rules, considering the quality assurance as a bug hunting. And even with the evolution of software development methodologies, often this concept remains major in the understanding of our profession.
My talk is more an appeal to stop and think about what we are actually doing. What is the quality and what is excellent quality? And how often does it really need for our users?
In addition, I will bring some techniques and tools that will help to take your approach to quality assurance to a new level and to do it consciously.
Variations of test driven development: involving testers to the process
There are a lot of lines written about different approaches and methodologies of testing and development. Classic is always good, it is tested and honed on a variety of projects. The new tendencies allow us to be in a trend, move and develop following the new market requirements. But what if you do not always manage to act out of the box, as written in the textbook? There is no a universally accepted recipe for success. There is no a universal approach to testing that will suit any team and any project.
I'll tell you how we developed our "development through testing" with the testers involvement, which advantages it brought to the whole team and the project as a whole and what difficulties we had to face. This is not a universal recipe. It is not the "do as we" instruction. This is just an illustration of how you can develop your own "recipe for success."
