First Part (17:30-18:30)

Testing the right things - Developing a testing strategy - Gil Zilberfeld

We know that testing depends on context. We need to apply context also in our testing strategy, depending on where we are in the process – Are we in the beginning of the project, or towards the end? Are we testing for user experience, or functionality? Do we need automation at all, or maybe we’ve got so much automation, we’re already thinking on how to test our app on production servers?

The way we’re thinking strategically about testing is at the heart of this session. We’ll talk how to plan testing in different scales – Phases of product development (using Kent Beck's 3X model), from a “release” to a feature, from stories to a micro-drop. We’ll discuss testing MVPs, the risks in the specific level, and testing in production.

When our context changes, so does testing.
