Heads up – our technical producer (me) messed up levels and microphone choice and we ended up with a little bit of bleed between microphones that ends up not meeting our normally high quality standards. The next one will be better. For content, we talk a lot about what we’re seeing in the industry that […]
We are joined by the inventor of Selenium, Jason Huggins. Listen in for stories about the early days of Selenium, Jason’s thoughts on our UI rants, and much much more. Be sure to check out Jason’s latest venture – Tapster
Alan recently took some heat on Twitter for disliking Selenium – or more accurately, how it was being used. This episode is a discussion and expansion of why Alan and Brent both have strong feelings about the industry infatuation with UI testing.
We realize during the intro, that this is the first time we’ve recorded an AB Testing podcast when neither Alan nor Brent are in a dedicated testing / QA role. What does that mean for Modern Testing? Turns out – not that much. Listen as we discuss.
We talk very abstractly about Alan’s new role, and dive into a mailbag question on the role of leadership in a quality culture. This episode is brought to you by Practitest – check them out at https://www.practitest.com
An all mailbag show where we talk about skills needed by testers today, how to get developers to write tests, and hiring. Register for Brent’s AST webinar on Thursday – https://www.associationforsoftwaretesting.org/2019/01/23/webinar-building-a-data-centric-modern-quality-culture-with-brent-jensen/
Happy Holidays to each and everyone of our three listeners. We review and reflect on 2018, and talk about some things we think may happen in 2019. Listen all the way to the end for a cliffhanger from Brent. Thanks again for listening – in 2019, we will hit episode 100, our 5 year podacting […]
It’s the penultimate show of 2018, with a lot of (hopefully interesting) preamble on this one, but we spend a chunk of time reviewing the Context-Driven Testing Principles and how they relate to the Modern Testing Principles.
We eventually talk about a model Alan built to help a team discover where they need to grow in order to build a quality culture or move towards modern testing (they’re kind of the same thing). Some rants and ramblings also included.
We almost (but not quite) blast through the banter at the beginning, but eventually get a chance to talk a bit more about interpreting Principle #5, and dive into a James Bach talk on the Test Automation Pyramid.
It’s the last of our deep-dive series on Modern Testing Principles. This time, we discuss the (sometimes controversial) principle number 7: We expand testing abilities and knowhow across the team; understanding that this may reduce (or eliminate) the need for a dedicated testing specialist. Not too many tangents this time. Next time, we’ll get caught up […]
On to the next principle in our deep dive series. Principle Number 6 says: We use data extensively to deeply understand customer usage and then close the gaps between product hypotheses and business impact. Note that episode 82 makes a nice listening companion.
