SmartQA Digest

Rich UI applications seem to pose a challenge. Not just for automation but also also for coverage/completeness. There seems to be a lot to do, creating doubts like “Am I complete? Am I testing enough?”  especially the functional tests. Why does complex UI faze a tester? Is it possibly the inability to see beyond the UI, the inability to question beyond the obvious? This week’s beEnriched article looks at how the design concepts ‘coupling & cohesion’ could be be applied to decompose a rich UI to test effectively and efficiently – “Simplifying rich UI testing“.
 
UI biases one to act. To check. 
Headless forces thinking. To dig in. 
Great quality is about ‘WHAT-ifs’.
This week’s poster.
 
“General purpose SW engineering skill is on its way to becoming extinct. Develop specialized in automation, in “-ities” testing. Learn technology.” This is the advice that Sudhir Patnaik  outlines in this week’s smartbits – “Advice for career growth“.
Rich UI.

Simplifying rich UI testing

Why does a complex UI faze a tester? Is it possibly the inability to see beyond the UI, the inability to question beyond the obvious? Too many test cases, the overwhelming feeling that scientific modelling & design cannot be practised due to time constraints are some of the issues.

Errors are useful, innovate using them.

As software test practitioners we revel in finding bugs, and as managers and engineers we are focused on fixing these. Steven Johnson in his book “Where good ideas come from-The seven patterns of innovation” devotes a chapter on errors as a source of innovation. This article summarises key ideas from this outlining how erroneous hunch changes history, how contamination is useful, how being wrong forces you to explore, how paradigm shifts with anomalies and how error transform into insight.
