In this masterclass you will learn to improve your testing skills as a developer, through a quantified self-approach: test, measure and then learn.
As developers we lack a metric of how well we manually test an application in development and as a result, how to improve our testing on localhost is not always clear cut. Writing automated tests improves this process by providing a coverage metric, but as you know 100% coverage does not guarantee 0 bugs.
We start this masterclass by providing an application under test and a script you will use to see to measure how well you can test from a user perspective. With this baseline manual coverage established we will approach different testing techniques such as
- Black Box Testing
- Requirements Based Testing
- White Box Testing
And measure how well each new technique improves your testing process, using real numbers rather than feel good metrics.
