  • Tooling stack of testing Asp.MVC Views
    “Craftsmen know their tools” At last weeks Jim Counts did a session on Testing MVC Views with ApprovalTests. watch the video here ] While I am always happy to see more ApprovalTesting in the world, I was also impressed with the full tooling stack Jim used throughout the presentation. Don’t get me wrong, Jim still does a simple “Hello World” type demo, but he applies all the rigor and professionalism I would want in a real project to that example. Nicely done Jim, you’ve inspired me to raise my game, and hopefully others as well. Asp.MVC Asp.Net C

  • Does Agile require cultural change?
    But… But Agile is a toolkit, you can pick out and use many of those tool without adopting others and without adopting an Agile mindset. TDD is not alone, there are lots of tools in the Agile toolkit that you can pick up and use individually, or with a couple of others, which will help you improve. But if you want the full benefit, well, you are going to have to pick up more tools and change that culture! Culture change is a far bigger effort than introducing any Agile tool - or even an Agile method. And I agree with them. agree. But, big BUT….

  • Test First vs Test After
    have the advantage of years of fluency and tools like approval tests. 'There has been a lot of talk lately about whether or not Test First is Dead. This is a complicated and tangled issue, so I want to simplify many aspects of this debate in this blog post to focus on a single aspect of TDD: time. So for this blog, let''s ignore the distinction between unit, integration, acceptance tests. I''ll lump them all together into a single box - ''tests''. Let''s focus on the speed aspects of Test First vs Test After. In this example, it took me 60 minutes to code a feature.

  • The Prototype of Future Knowledge Workers
    The key difference between software knowledge workers and the others is that other knowledge workers can only use the tools that exist. If a tool doesn’t exist, they can’t use it. Conversely, software developers have the means to create any tool they can imagine. This doesn’t mean that non-programmers can’t invent electronic tools. Others can invent tools, but for programmers the barriers between imagining a tool and creating the tool are far lower. Lower barriers mean that programmers create many more tools than other types of worker.

  • Programmers without TDD will be unemployable by 2022 (a prediction)
    Broadly speaking the same skills and similar tools are involved although there are significant differences, i.e. if you don’t have the ability to do TDD you can’t do BDD, but there is more to BDD than to TDD. Finally, debuggers are going to be less important, good use of TDD removes most of the need for a debugger (thats where the time comes from), which means IDEs will be less important, which means the developers tool market is going to change 'New year is traditionally the time of predictions, and several of the blogs I read have been engaging in predictions (e.g.

  • Does anyone actually use Quick Test Pro etc.?
    Those who talk about automated testing buy tools like Quick Test Pro, WinRunner and Quality Centre and Rational Test Workbench, Rational Quality Manager, i.e. expensive products from the likes of HP and IBM. Those who do automated testing use tools like Selenium , Fit & Fitnesse , Cucumber (inc. In addition: I just don’t think these tools are any good. To be fair, I’m no expert on testing tools but I’ve seen Quality Centre in action. Quality Centre (QC) isn’t an automated testing tool, its a very expensive test tracker. Gerkin, RSpec, etc.)

  • Manual testing sinful?
    Because these systems are marketed and sold as “no programming required” to offer automated test tools would expose the lie. 'One of the asides I made in “ Programmers without TDD will be unemployable ” which caused a bit of outrage in the testing community was my comment “Manual testing is a sin.” While I have been unfair to many testers, and somewhat simplistic, I still stand by the statement. Let me expand on why I still stand by the comment and why I am wrong. It is all a question of context. Look at the full line the quote appeared in: “Unit testing will be overwhelmingly automated.

  • Software Developmers: prototype of future knowledge workers?
    Software developers are able to create new tools for machines which allow them to change the way they do knowledge work. Lets be clear: Unlike other knowledge workers software developers have the ability to create new tools which can change their work. Software developers have early, if not first, access to tools which benefit knowledge work. One might also add that people working with technology welcome and embrace new tools and technologies (on the whole) so the barriers for technology change are lower. Our tools changed which allowed - even forced?

  • 11 Agile Myths and 2 Truths
    Please be aware: documentation is often unread, often fails to communicate, is used as a defensive tool and is typically the second most expensive think on a large software project (after rework). I deliver a lot of Agile training courses and I give a lot of talks about Agile ( BCS Bristol tonight ). There are some questions that come up again and again which are the result of myths people have come to believe about Agile. Consequently I spend my time debunking these myths again and again. ve been keeping a little list and there are 11 reoccurring myths.

  • How do I make testing faster?
    And please please please, don’t spend money on tool test tools. 'Earlier this week I was the guest of a large bank in the City, OK Canary Wharf actually. They had their own little internal Agile conference. As well as myself some of the usual suspects were on parade as well as some internal speakers. It was very enjoyable and as usual the C-List speakers were some of the most interesting. Later in the day I found myself in conversation with two people concerned about software testing. They posed the question: “How do we make testing faster?” The usual one is cost. Now the catch.
