Description:

This is the third and final webinar in a series excerpted from Rex’s popular book, Advanced Software Testing: Volume 1, a book for test analysts and test engineers. In this third webinar, Rex will discuss the use of use cases in testing. Use case testing ensures that we have tested typical and exceptional workflows and scenarios for the system, from the point of view of the various actors who directly interact with the system and from the point of view of the various stakeholders who indirectly interact with the system.

Software Testing: Test Organization Options 9/6/2010

Length: 1h 26m 14s
Download (14.8 MB)

Description:

How should we staff and organize our test teams? This is a great challenge for many test managers, and indeed the organizations that have test teams. Should we have specialized or generalized test teams? What role (if any) do people outside the testing team play in testing? Should we have an in-house testing center of excellence or testing services organization, and, if so, what should that team do? When and how should we use outsource testing service providers? How do lifecycle options like the V-model, iterative, agile, and spiral affect the answers to these questions? These are hard questions that many RBCS clients struggle with. Join this webinar to review and discuss the options available, in an interactive forum, with Rex Black. Attendees are encouraged to send questions and topics to cover to Rex prior to the webinar.

Advanced Software Testing: State Based Testing 7/13/2010

Length: 1h 24m 10s
Download (14.4 MB)

Description:

This is the second in a series of webinars excerpted from Rex's popular book, Advanced Software Testing: Volume 1, a book for test analysts and test engineers. In this second webinar, Rex will discuss the use of state diagrams, state tables, and switch coverage. Such state-based testing is ideal when we have sequences of events that occur and conditions that apply to those events, and the proper handling of a particular event/condition situation depends on the events and conditions that have occurred in the past. In some cases, the sequences of events can be potentially infinite, which of course exceeds our testing capabilities, but we want to have a test design technique that allows us to handle arbitrarily-long sequences of events. Join this webinar, illustrated with examples throughout, to learn a technique that you can apply to your work right away.
