Testopsies: Dissecting Your Tests

To improve as a skilled tester, you don’t necessarily have to attend a class or read a book. James Bach and Michael Bolton show how you can grow as a tester by recording and then dissecting just minutes of your test process. By looking very carefully at what you actually do, identifying your own heuristics, and putting that process into descriptive, evocative words, you can discover surprising depths in each act of testing you perform. In a testopsy, you build your skills of observation, narration, and test framing. You may even discover a technique no one yet has written about. And if you do it with a colleague, it stimulates discussion on test design.
