From Testing Hell to Testing Well
So how do high-performing teams achieve the seemingly impossible task of delivering valuable software with increasing speed and frequency without compromising quality?
To deliver changes safely, quickly and sustainably, teams need to focus relentlessly on Testability, eliminating anything that makes testing difficult, slow, wasteful or less trustworthy. A whole team focus on Testability shortens feedback loops and accelerates learning while enabling more robust automation and deep, meaningful testing.
In this masterclass, Rob recounts his testability journey and the lessons he has learned. He presents the models, exercises and workshops he used extensively as a test coach to build a whole team focus on testability so you can take his learnings to advocate and inform your own team about testability.
What you’ll learn
By the end of this masterclass, you'll be able to:
- Inform your team about testability and testing debt
- Apply the CODS testability model to identify and address architectural testability problems
- Recognise the importance of of the whole team focussing on testability
- Apply the 10 Ps testability model to get a holistic view of your team's testing experience
