MTM Coded UI Test automation investment, when to use what.

All validation (test) activities cost money. So, every activity to test a system should be executed as efficient as possible (see also the ‘testing in sprint’ series on this blog). Adding automation to the execution of these validation saves execution time, which saves money. But, specifying, creating and maintaining these automation cost money. So, the hard question is where is the balance, where the break-even point of test automation. Not that easy to answer question but lets give it a try. All quadrants in the ‘Agile Testing quadrant’ have some kind of Visual Studio tool support (No automation with out tool support).   For the technology focused tests, the ROI of test automatio...

11. Getting Testing Done in the Sprint - The Customer Test Team

I don’t mean the acceptance test team, although many think and organize it as if it is the same. On a test conference a few weeks ago I heard the story of moving testing out of the sprint, or adding a specific test sprint after a development sprint. Both ‘worksrrounds’ I dislike, you lose the flexibility and feedback loop. It was something like the ‘IndependentParallelTesting’ story, also not my favorite solution. During the conference I posted a tweet, and got replies from Sander and Marcel. Lucky me I’m not alone (I like the last comment from Sander, the process just should support and embrace it, see: The most clear characteristic of the customer te... [More]

Below my presentation (demo’s will follow next week on my YouTube channel). Agile teams find it hard to get the testing effort in sync with the other development activities.

10. Getting Testing Done in the Sprint – the Definition of Done

Are we done? When this is unclear the team will do too less or too much. Both are bad. The Definition of Done helps to define when you are done, the same as a master test plan helps to define the test levels. A good definition of done specific for your team and project will definitely help knowing when you're ready and to get testing done in a sprint. Mainly because you know when you're done. Making a good definition of done is a trivial task and books are written about it. A good starting point are these posts: How Do We Know When We Are Done? Definition of Done: A Reference An Exercise for Defining Done for Scrum Teams What is Done? - A ... [More]
