    The Pragmatic Tester

    • 2 Comments
    One of my favorite programming books is “the pragmatic programmer”.  I’ve toyed for a long time with writing articles or giving presentations on “the pragmatic tester” – and show how Andrew Hunt’s concepts of broken windows, tracer bullets, stone soup...

    The Role of Test

    • 2 Comments
    What is the Role of Test?  The answer, of course, is “it depends”.  Those that know me know that this is the answer to almost any question I ask (I guess I need to ask more specific questions…).  The role of the software test team depends on many things...

    Tracking Requirements

    • 2 Comments
    This isn’t technically a testing topic, but it is a topic close to tester’s hearts.  Software requirements are one of my passions (boy is that an embarrassing statement).  While I am definitely not one of “those testers” who say testing can’t be done...

    How many tests are enough?

    • 3 Comments
    How many tests are enough?  How much code coverage is enough?  How relevant are the number of tests, code coverage numbers and bug counts in knowing when testing is done? Let’s say, for example, that I’m testing a 5000 line component and I’ve written...

    EDC Topic suggestions?

    • 0 Comments
    The next Embedded Developers Conference is May 10-12 in Vegas.  I haven’t submitted any proposals yet, but plan to submit presentations on developing TUX based tests (mostly the same as I’ve presented before with some additions / improvements), and possibly...
