We have created a new site to highlight Hexawise videos on combinatorial, pairwise + orthogonal array software testing. We have posted videos on a variety of software testing topics including: selecting appropriate test inputs for pairwise and combinatorial software test design, how to select the proper inputs to create a pairwise test plan, using value expansions for values in the same equivalence classes.

Here is a video with an introduction to Hexawise:

I'll be talking at QAI's 12th Annual International Software Testing Conference on Dec 6th in Bangalore, India.

Topic: Conquering the Single Largest Challenge Facing Testers Today

"There's too much to test and not enough time to test it all." According to a recent survey conducted by Robert Sabourin, this is the single largest challenge facing test managers today. And this challenge clearly won't go away any time soon. Software is becoming increasingly complex and time pressures put on testing teams are becoming ever more extreme.

To survive and thrive as testers, we need to find ways to learn more in the limited time we have. This talk addresses:

  • Proven test design methods to learn as much as possible about a System Under Test as quickly as possible

  • How these methods were originally developed and refined in other (non-IT) industries over the last 80 years

    • How the recent Apple Maps disaster could have been easily avoided by implementing these methods
  • Real world case studies: these methods sound nice on paper, but do they actually work?

  • Reasons why these methods are being used at more than 100 Fortune 500 firms today

    • What does the future hold?

 

Attendees will learn about valuable testing strategies that are being used today by more than 100 Fortune 500 firms. In particular, attendees will hear about:

  • Practical test design approaches that they can begin implementing after the conference at their firms to:

    • Reduce the amount of time spent selecting and documenting test scripts
    • Reduce the amount of tests needed for execution by creating unusually powerful tests
    • Increase the thoroughness of software test suites
