  • Blog Post: Santosh speaks...

    Santosh, who I have the pleasure of working with everyday, has posted a really interesting entry on what it feels like to be a software tester at Microsoft. Absolutely one of the most interesting and well-written posts I've ever had the pleasure of reading on the subject of testing. You can enjoy it...
  • Blog Post: Got bugs?

    “Any idea how many bugs may still be in the product?” A question I've been asked and heard others get asked on many occasions. It drives me nuts. Not because it's a dumb question, as we'd all certainly love to have the answer to it. It's just that it's pretty much impossible to answer. But...

  • Blog Post: Measuring test effectiveness

    Before joining Microsoft, I was a developer at a call center and consulting company in Miami. I was developing applications used by the phone reps (or TSRs) used to take fullfillment orders for some of the big cruise lines such as Princess, Royal Caribbean, NCL, and Celebrity. I primarily used three...
  • Blog Post: C# and unit testing chat next Thursday (3/18)

    Scott's post reminded me of the upcoming chat I got an invite for a few days ago. It's happening next Thursday and the topic is C# and unit testing. You can get more details on this page . I'm looking forward to it even more now as, according to Scott, it seems James Newkirk will be participating as...
  • Blog Post: Migrated some entries from the old blog...

    I've moved over a few of the recent entries I made on the old blog as I plan on posting follow-ups to them at some point. Three of them I added as articles: Testing the C# Compiler #1 Testing the C# Compiler #2 Inline Warning Control I also went ahead and reposted the post on random testing...
  • Blog Post: Stochastic (aka Random) Testing

    Paul Dietz commented on one of my posts about testing the compiler asking whether we do any "random testing" of the compiler. I also really appreciate the links he included to a couple of very interesting papers on the same subject. The first article was Will McKeeman's "Differential Testing for Software...
  • Blog Post: Testing the C# Compiler #2

    Lots of questions were sent my way after the last post about testing the compiler. A lot of them can be answered by providing some example tests that show some real code and demonstrate how a test works in our world. So that's what I'll attempt to do in this post. I'm keeping the tests as simple as possible...
  • Blog Post: Testing the C# Compiler #1

    One of my intentions when I first started this blog was to focus some on software testing in general but also provide a view of how we test the C# compiler as well. I've miserably failed at both of those so far. But I guess it's never too late to start. Every time Eric and I chat about blogging and I...
