We are all a bit lazybones, or at least looking for the most effective way to do our daily tasks. Looking at my Roomba robotic vacuum cleaner, I have been thinking today that in terms of domestic cleaning, automation has just as many
advantages than disadvantages in the field of software testing, and that it quickly shows its limitations.
This week, we suggest you to read four articles:
- Introducing HISToW by Cassandra H. Leung
- Without testing there is no development by Chris Miles
- Test Automation is Not Enough for Quality Bas Dijkstra interviewed by Chelsea Frischknecht
- Using SPIN for persuasive communication by Katrina Clokie
Here are our reading recommendations of the week #19. We are first suggesting 2 articles around a recurrent subject: automatic checking and how to deal with flaky tests. Then a feedback about how challenging it is to be a software tester in a Continuous Deployment environment. Finally, the last article is an analogy with restaurants that intend to help testers introducing themselves to developers.
