April meeting announcement – Extreme ATDD

Whether ATDD seems like an extreme approach to you or business as usual, join Terry and Ayan as they explore ways to extend the concept and apply the techniques. We will identify various stakeholder groups (not just users) and how the team and Product Owners can use ATDD to guide conversations and enable a shared understanding about the SUD (System Under Development) and articulate what success means to them.

Please join us in our April meeting with Terry Wiegmann and Ayan Dave on Extreme ATDD.

February meeting announcement – The Scourge of Testing: Test Data Management

Test data management is often a forgotten need. That is until the consequences are of mismanaging or failure to manage come home to roost. In today’s world, IT organizations produce and rely on huge volumes of data. As systems become more complex, so do the test cases needed to validate them as well as the test data needed to execute the test cases. We will discuss the test data management life cycle and real world examples of test data management gone awry in order to better understand the importance of good test data management practices. It is important to note, that this session is NOT about test case management or about data element profiling or identification techniques. It is about data in terms of data sets and what is needed to support a testing effort.

January meeting announcement – Open Discussion on Managing Test Failures

This month, we will facilitate an open group discussion on how to manage test failures.  All too often we create automated tests that initially pass, but slowly over time, tests start to fail – some due to bugs, some due to test or environmental failures.  Different groups have different strategies for managing these test failures.  As a group, we want to share how folks have effectively managed these situations.  Hopefully, we’ll all learn a new way of managing failures so that they do not obliterate test automation efforts.

November meeting announcement – Open Discussion on strategies for writing automated tests for testing integration of multiple systems

Come see Central Ohio ATDD wizards in November for an Open Discussion on strategies for writing automated tests for testing integration of multiple systems.

Writing acceptance tests for your system is one thing, but what happens when you want to write automated tests for interactions between multiple systems?  What if that other system you want to interact with isn’t a system that you own?  We’ll have an open discussion about the techniques and challenges that you’ll face when you try to write automated tests across system boundaries.
