The Down Part of “Shift Left and Down"

Shifting defect discovery to earlier activities (shift left) reduces rework and improves quality deliveries to customers. A lot of attention is paid to this part of “Shift Left and Down”, but how do we do the shift down? Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is the answer. A variety of techniques can be used with varying formalities, cost, and results; ranging from informal, 5-why, Ishikawa/fishbone to Cause-Effect. Which technique is the right one to use, and when should it be applied? Is your organization ready for RCA? What do you do with the results? In this recorded webinar, Rex Black discusses these questions and others with Ed Weller, who draws on 20 years of experience using RCA and onsite training across a wide range of businesses.

Why Selenium Is So Important for Test Automators

Becoming a Test Automation Professional for Free on the Internet? Right!

I had a conversation with someone whose management had suggested that he have his test team learn Selenium from free videos on the Internet, then they could automate all of their tests with it.  So, show of hands, how many people think that this strategy has any chance of success?  What right-minded person would decide to invest hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of effort in letting untrained people, with no experienced leadership or professionally-designed test architecture, build a test automation suite?  Would you pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for a house built by people who learned everything they know about carpentry and electrical wiring on YouTube?

If you need help educating your team on Selenium test automation, and putting a smart test architecture in place, let us know.  We can help with that.

Avoid Useless Knowledge

It's fair to say that the more we test, the more we learn, but testing needs to focus on learning (and telling people about) the important aspects of the system. Not all questions deserve answers.
