Rob Sabourin: On Testing

Are you continually testing software the same old way? Do you need fresh ideas? Are your hum-drum tests not finding enough defects? Are your tests too slow for today’s fast-paced lifecycles? Then this workshop will help you spice things up, improve your testing, and get things done. Rob Sabourin outlines more than 150 different ways to test your software to quickly and efficiently expose relevant problems. Each is illustrated with custom artwork and explained with real world examples. Testing is examined from several perspectives—agile and otherwise. What objectives should our testing focus on? How can we design powerful tests? When does it make sense to explore different risks? Can tests be reused, repurposed, or recycled? How does automation fit in? When does checking make sense? Which static techniques are available? What about non-functional testing? “Test evangelist” Rob provides a lively, entertaining, and informative view of software testing.
