How comfortable are you with all the processes and activities surrounding building software?
Think about how software comes about as a team:

  • It all starts with an idea
  • We collaborate around the idea to form requirement artefacts
  • We collaborate to for design wireframes for US and UI and pad out our requirement artefacts with this info
  • We use all of the artefacts to stem architecture design, platform design, code design
  • We write the code
  • We have operational software that we can assess
  • We deploy the operational software to production
  • We then observe, support and maintain that software in production

 
And then we do it all over again for the next feature ideas.
So why do many testers over focus their testing just on testing the software?
What happens when you test the feature idea? Or the requirement artefacts? Or the design wireframes? Or the architecture and platform design? And the code design and written code too?
Doing this actually really helps your team build quality in to the product as they perform these activities. It's the tightest possible feedback loops throughout each activity, and refactoring throughout each of these activities helps to prevent problems and bugs in the next activity.
Come along to this 99 minute workshop so that you can:

  • Outline the various stages of the SDLC that you can apply your testing to
  • Describe the value and importance of testing throughout the SDLC
  • Use different techniques to actually test throughout these activities before a line of code has actually been written
