Friends don't let friends deliver junk - How to work with together and release excellent software

A session at CodePaLOUsa 2012

  • Brett Leonard

Saturday 17th March, 2012

2:00pm to 3:00pm (EST)

There are a number of ways test teams approach their relationship with developers. One way is through an adversarial relationship where testers try to break software - test books such as "How To Break Software" encourage such thinking but this is rarely an effective approach. How then can a software tester work more effectively with developers to deliver high quality software? It begins with a relationship based on trust and mutual respect. In this talk, Brett will discuss specific "tester commitments" that testers should make to developers to set the ground rules of the tester/developer relationship. Then he will describe examples of testers working with developers including behavior-driven, simultaneous test/development, and exploratory testing approaches within the context of the commitments.
