Stephen Hill replied to Rosie Sherry's discussion What's one thing you learned about software testing recently?
"Remember the computer hardware/software is only part of the process(es). There's people too, layout of equipment, world events... The list is endless and they all can have an impact on how your system operates."

Back in the groove...

During a very difficult first half of the year due to family circumstances and a recent bereavement I have not been as active on Software Testing Club as I would have liked.  I have also not been tweeting or blogging much at Pedantic Tester.

 

I am through that now and am now ready to recommence activities as before.  To mark this, I have just posted a new article on the STC Wiki - Testing Processes - take a look…

Well they say the best laid plans of mice and men often go askew - I really had intended to post more about the course, revision and subsequent exam but in the end time got the better of me.



I went on an accredited course 18 - 20 November and got lots of notes. It really is worthwhile going on the course if for no other reason than to get more experience with using the formal test design techniques 'properly'.



One of the anecdotes from trainer centred on a discussion that… Continue
