In 2015, I ran a workshop at TestBash Brighton entitled "Supercharging Your Bug Reports" (also available in webinar format on the Ministry of Testing Dojo). In that class, I outlined some of the key components of an effective bug report, with the goal of helping testers to become better advocates for problems in their workplace. Fast-forward to 2017, and my world (and beliefs) have changed. I've been working in some fast-paced environments with highly-productive teams, where life moves at a pace which is largely incompatible with "traditional" bug reporting processes.
How do you effectively act as a champion for quality when one of your most visible forms of communication is taken away? In this talk, I'll share stories of my transition: how I had to adapt, the approaches that I chose to take, and evaluate how my 2017 outlook on bug reporting compares to my previous vision.
There'll also be an interactive Q&A session, where you can share your own experiences and challenges in this area, and maybe find new ways of approaching the problems that you face.
