This is a project by Rob Lambert and Joel Montvelisky (you can see a short bio of us on the right side of the screen) where we answer a number of interesting questions that we get from testers constantly, and that focus around a number of different areas of our very interesting profession.
E33 - The Pitfall Of Estimations And How (try To) Avoid Them
What would you do when you are asked to provide estimations on “How long it will take to test” something, without getting much more than the title of a feature or an Epic. Sounds made-up? Believe it, it is not!
E32 - Frustrations In Testing And What To Do About Them
Ever felt like testers have a frustrating job? I have had my share of places and times when I found myself working with people and testing in organizations and products that were really annoying!
What are the most common frustrations in testing and what can we do as testers and managers to decrease the suffering levels of our teams.
E31 - Testing From Home, Pitfalls & Tips
If you are listening from somewhere in the Civilized world (with some exceptions around China and the Scandinavian countries) you are probably listening to this podcast from home. You are keeping social distance, and coping with new work & life reality than the one we used to have at the beginning of 2020.
Today we want to review a number of points and talk about things you may do to improve your working from home status.
E30 - Continuous Improvement - Sounds Good, But How Do You Go About It
What does Continuous Improvement have to do with Testing? Good question.
This topic is not only related to testing, but it is definitely needed in every team, and testers are specially positioned to drive change and especially improvements, as we are tasked with looking at the product and the process and find what doesn’t work correctly in them. Once we know what needs to be improved, it is only natural that we push to make this happen.
E29 - Metrics - The Good, The Bad And The Ugly
Is there a more controversial topic in testing? Yet a tool more widely used by testing teams?
We count everything - how many tests have we run, how many bugs, what is the relationship between developers and testers, how many minutes before lunch…
Let’s talk about metrics, what do you say?
