'Life is too short for manual testing' By André Vondran

Testing the Documentation by André Vondran - This is a MUST

Whether or not you attend the meetings, you can add value to the project by ‘testing’ the documentation.

This isn’t an XP concept, but it is linked to flushing out hidden assumptions during XP planning games.

One way to test documents is to read through the document, writing a list of assertions.

For example, maybe you’re reading requirements for an order entry system and have come up with these assertions:

  • "The system will capture the customer service…

André Vondran: SQA Values

Earlier in this article I referred to the values by which XP teams develop software.

  • Communication
  • Simplicity

XP Testing Without an XP Team, By André Vondran

After my rewarding, if challenging, experience as a tester on XP teams, the bad economic times caught up with me and I had to take a job back on the "dark side".

Oh, my new company was great and they were interested in XP, but they were a tiny shop with a huge job to do and it felt to me like barely controlled chaos.

My initial attempts to apply XP practices, such as having daily XP-style stand-ups with my test team, were disasters. I just had to hunker…

The Nature of XP Testing, By André Vondran

The biggest difference between XP projects and most ‘traditional’ software development projects is the concept of test-driven development. With XP, every chunk of code is covered by unit tests, which must all pass all the time.

XP Tester Activities, By Andre Vondran



Here are some activities testers perform on XP teams.

How XP Testing is Different By Andre Vondran

I found that XP testing was different in many ways from ‘traditional’ testing. The biggest difference is that on an XP project, the entire development team takes responsibility for quality. This means the whole team is responsible for all testing tasks, including acceptance test automation. When testers and programmers work together, the…
