At the February Tampa Bay ScrumMasters Guild, David Corbin, President and Chief Architect of Dynamic Concepts Development Corporation, presented “A Comprehensive Approach to Testing.”
David started by introducing his Axioms of Testing:
- In a perfect world, testing is a complete waste of time—but we do not exist in a perfect world, so testing is crucial.
- 100% testing of any non-trivial system would require an infinite amount of resources. You can’t prove a system is defect free.
These foundations served as a launching point to discuss a variety of factors that go into creating a comprehensive testing infrastructure. Topics included:
- Forces that drive testing
- What do we test
- When do we test
- Guiding principles of testing
David will present “A Comprehensive Approach to Testing” at the South Florida Code Camp on February 20th.
The next Tampa Bay ScrumMasters Guild meeting is March 2.
