"Visualizing Testability" by Maria Kedemo
The simplest way Maria Kedemo knows of describing testability is “How easy it is to test a specific product”. Low testability would be anything that slows you down or makes it harder to test. Frustrated testers might be a symptom of such. A high degree of testability helps not only testers, but everyone involved in the development of the product.
Through out her career as a test manager she has seen her fellow testers suffer daily from things affecting their testing negatively. Flaky test environments, buggy code, exclusion from relevant information, difficulties in creating test data and lack of knowledge in a specific domain were only a few of the problems.
The suffering was not the testers’ alone. It affected the project, the development teams and the organization. So Maria decided to make “Visualizing Testability” the mission for year 2014, thus moving testability forward to a common awareness and ownership.
Maria will share: - Why she thinks testability is important. - The problems lack of testability caused. - How techniques used to visualise testability helped her team. - How helping non-testing peers understand testability helped her team.
