Presentation Title:ECOnomy in testing: Early, Collaboratively, Once
Abstract:There are many (excellent) tools, techniques and processes available to help you improve your testing and find bugs more efficiently. However, this talk takes a step back from those to look at three underlying principles – Early, Collaboratively, Once – which can have a major impact on the effectiveness of your testing and on how much you need to invest in achieving great quality software.

  • Early – No matter whether you follow a waterfall or Agile process, involving your testers early, for instance in test planning, will get the most benefit from their valuable skills.
  • Collaboratively – Testers should reject the traditional gatekeeper role and work with developers as friends, not fools.
  • Once – Spend time to identify the most appropriate level to test at – for example, don’t cover something with manual end-to-end testing which could be more efficiently covered by unit tests.
