The Test Tribe 10th Bangalore Meetup
Hello Bangalore Testers,
The 10th Bangalore Meetup for Testers is here and we just can’t keep calm as we are hosting James Bach, someone whom a lot of testers across the World dream of meeting and learning from. You don’t want to miss this opportunity to meet and learn from one of the best in the world, do you? 🙂
The Meetup is happening on June 23rd, Sunday, 11:00 AM
What’s in store?
This meetup we are hosting James Bach who would be speaking and guiding on something amazing. And yes, he may take a few questions as well from the audience.
Topic – Testing vs Checking
Testing and Checking Explained Checking is short for “fact checking” or “output checking.” It is an evaluation activity that can be completely automated. Testing, on the other hand, can be supported by tools, but not automated. In other words, testing, like software development, is a non-algorithmic activity that is mediated by social competence; whereas compiling and checking are both algorithmic, requiring no social competence. But just as compiling is irrelevant without programming, checking is irrelevant without testing. Checking is an important– but subordinate– part of testing. Why does this distinction matter? Because when testing is confused with checking, management believes that the best way to improve testing is to automate everything and turn testers into tool jockeys. This destroys testing culture and discourages smart people from doing testing. Let’s not do that.
James is CEO of Satisfice, Inc, company dedicated to teaching and consulting in Software Testing. He is a Founding Member of Rapid Software Testing(RST) Methodology.
He started in the Software business as a programmer. He likes programming. But He finds the problems of software quality analysis and improvement more interesting than those of software production. For him, there’s something very compelling about the question “How do I know my work is good?” Indeed, how do I know anything is good? What does good mean? That’s why He got into Software Testing, in 1987.
James is also the author of books like “Lessons Learned in Software Testing: A Context-Driven Approach” and “Secrets of a Buccaneer-Scholar: How Self-Education and the Pursuit of Passion Can Lead to a Lifetime of Success“.
