Description:

Testing is an interesting part of the software engineering process, in that we are engage in a voyage into the unknown. After all, if we could predict the results of our tests in advance, we wouldn’t need to run them. However, if testing delivers only an incoherent, confusing, and possibly even contradictory mass of raw findings in the form of the status of hundreds or even thousands of test cases and bug reports, then what value has testing created? In order to deliver value, testing must deliver insight and confidence to the other project participants and stakeholders. In this presentation, Rex will talk about the problems with most approaches to test results reporting and how to transcend those problems, so that everyone understands the test results and can make good decisions based on them.
