In an Agile/DevOps environment, you have more opportunities than ever to report about testing. You catch a missing requirement in a refinement session. You point things out as you pair or ensemble. You’re telling people about what you did during stand-up. Your pipeline turns red and rejects a commit.
Elizabeth will uncover some of the ways you are delivering information about the quality of your software and about how testing is going. Let's explore the many different forms a test report can take, and how you can make them more effective.
Some example questions and themes you may wish to ask include:
- What forms can a test report take?
- What do people tend to miss in test reporting?
- Do you have a template I can use?
- How does a test report relate to the test plan or strategy?
- Does the thing my pipeline generate a test report?
Straight after this AMA, join the Zoom Lean-Coffee Session for an informal chat with your fellow community members and discuss all the new ideas and learnings you took from this Ask Me Anything!
