  • Blog Post: Session Based Testing

    As I was planning to do a team-wide presentation on Session Based Testing, I just thought I might as well use this opportunity to blog and share my own learning on Session Based Testing and at the same time prepare for the talk.  Killing 1 bird with two stones has been one of my repertoires (wait...
  • Blog Post: Email Address test cases

    I've been on many teams in my whole testing career, and for some reason, I always end up getting assigned to validate the email address field. So after numerous times of hunting down my old email test cases from previous team, I am giving up. I thought I am just going to list out all of them here out...

    1) Order t-shirts for the development team 2) Announce the release date 3) Write the code 4) Write the manual 5) Hire a PM 6) PM spec the software based on the code (to ensure the software meets the specifications) 7) Ship/Launch 8) Test with real users (free) 9) Bugs are potential enhancements 10) Announce...
  • Blog Post: Exploring “Exploratory Testing”

    My current team has been integrating this testing technique for a while now along with the traditional testing methods of manual testing as well as automation.  Most of the testing community that I have known seem to brush this testing technique off simply as “monkey testing” which doesn’t really...
  • Blog Post: Help! I found a bug in my code

    Okay, after a long sabbatical from writing blogs due to various reasons (over-worked, personal reasons, or just plain lazy), I am about to begin start blogging again. My MSDN blog ranking has taken such an embarrassing tumble that I think I need to start hustling up again. So, to welcome myself back...
  • Blog Post: Software Testing Forum from MSDN

    I have been wondering for as long as I can remember why MSFT doesn't have a centralized forum for software testing. But today, it seemed that testing god has answered that question as I happened to stumble upon this MSDN Software Testing Discussing Forum . Although it seemed that the forum had just been...

    Technorati Tags: software development , testing , bugs , scrum Last week, I attended one of the engineering forum held annually at Microsoft (ala Engineering Excellence & Trust Worthy Computing Forum), which I must say is one of the great perks for being employed here. In one of the talk, which...
  • Blog Post: Demystifying test estimate

    Let's think about this for a second: How come a developer can easily calculate implementation time, but why a tester always scratch his (or her) head when asked to provide time needed to stabilize the software? Why is test estimate so difficult and elusive to figure out? In my opinion, I think accurate...
  • Blog Post: 6 things my cats teach me how to be better tester

    Keeping pets can bring many benefits -- reduce stress, companionship, attract the opposite sex, etc. However, it just occurred to me that my pet cats actually are even more useful than that. There are certain attributes about them that I find interesting, and at the same time, applicable to my line of...
  • Blog Post: Maturity model for test organization

    One advantage of changing job as frequent as I did, is the privilege of getting hands-on experience of different team environment. I had the opportunity of being on 3 different test teams, each with very distinct characteristics and each team is in very different stage in terms of maturity. Just like...

  • Blog Post: Data-driven testing pitfalls

    The concept of data driven testing has been around for quite a long time, and I think it's worthwhile to review its application which can be extremely powerful to automated testing. At the same time, it's also beneficial to know that there are certain situations where it can do more harm than good...
  • Blog Post: Dear Project Manager

    I consider myself lucky to have the fortunates to work with many great project managers. But at the same time, I also have the ill fortune to work with many not-so-good-ones. One of the traits which I notice between those two groups are how much they really think about quality process. PMs from the first...
