De (autor)
Notă GoodReads:
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 09 Jan 2002

"A fresh, provocative look at what goes on in the ′real world′ of software testing–guaranteed to make you rethink most of your assumptions and traditional ′theories′ of how testing really ought to be done."
–Ed Yourdon

"Any one of these tiny lessons could be worth the price of the book."
–Tom DeMarco, Principal, The Atlantic Systems Guild

Great software testing teams aren′t born, they′re made–through a lot of hard work and persuasive communication. Along the way, there is an abundance of traps that one can fall into, which can derail the best–laid plans and put your projects behind schedule.

Cem Kaner, James Bach, and Bret Pettichord know this all too well. Between them, they have over fifty years of testing experience, and know what it takes for successful testing. In this groundbreaking new book, they have compiled 293 pieces of experience–tested advice for you to put to work in your testing projects. They reveal insights on how to do the job well, how to manage it, and how to steer clear of common misunderstandings in software testing. Each lesson is an assertion related to software testing, followed by an explanation or example that shows you the how, when, and why of the testing lesson.

The ultimate resource for software testers, developers, and managers at every level of expertise, this guidebook also features:
∗ Useful practices and helpful ways of evaluating situations gleaned from over fifty years of combined testing experience from the world′s leading software testing experts
∗ Lessons for all key topic areas including test design, test automation, test management, testing strategies, and bug reporting
∗ Advice on how to match the selection of practices to the circumstances of your project
