  • Staying Positive in a Pandemic (a personal story)

    TL;DR I know it can be hard but to look for the positives in any situation. This post covers things that have happened in my life and how I’ve tried to respond to them. My motivation for writing this is to highlight the positive things that have happened to me during these trying times. I appreciate everyone's experiences will be different and by no means mean to diminish any mental health affects this time has had on me or others. That said I’ve always been one who tries hard to find positives in any situation. It was really clarified for me when I watched former professional wrestler Diamond Dallas Page (yes I’m a big wrestling fan) talk about living life at 90%. He said life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it. If you want to hear more the link is in the references below. To give you some perspective please let me share a couple of things that have happened to me in my life. When I was 7 I crossed the road without looking, stepping in front of a car I’m informed was doing ‘at least’ 45 miles an hour in a 30 zone. My mother was told I wouldn’t walk unaided, if I woke up from my coma. Spending half a year in hospital then visiting regularly over the next couple wasn’t exactly fun but I was alive. Over the years I’ve managed to play football, cricket and rugby with a[…]

  • What I Learned When I Developed a Web App

    What I Learned When I Developed a Web App Last week, I released a web application for people to use to practice UI and API automation. It took me about four months to develop, working on weeknights and weekends, and it was quite an adventure! Here are five lessons I learned while developing the app. Lesson One: Software development is hard; really hardYou’ve probably heard this before, and probably from the developers you work with. But unless you’ve actually tried to develop an app yourself, you really don’t know how hard it is. I remember in my early days of software testing, when I would find bugs where field validations weren’t working correctly, and I would assume that the developer just didn’t care. But now that I know just how hard it is to get validations to even work at all, I am really sympathetic! Lesson Two: We have product owners for a reasonTake a moment to appreciate your product owner this week; the work they do is more important than you realize. When I started to work on the front end of my application I didn’t think it would be very complicated because it only has a few simple screens. But as I was coding the pages, I kept coming up with questions about how each page should be connected to the others. Finally I had to stop what I was doing and sketch out wireframes. This is the kind of thing that product owners do for us so that we don’t have to! Lesson Three: Even the[…]

  • From Member to Mentor and Volunteer to VP: My journey with AST

    From Member to Mentor and Volunteer to VP: My journey with AST Photo by Clemens van Lay on Unsplash ​I am often asked why do I do what I do beyond my full time job. I could simply say it's my passion for software testing but I personally don't find that answer satisfying enough. It's hard to explain what exactly we get by doing certain things when we do it out of pure joy and satisfaction of simply doing it. But if I am to closely look at my journey with Association for Software Testing, I believe I have some answers to that. Back in 2011, when we launched Tea-time with Testers, I started getting in touch with passionate testers and experts from across the globe mainly to collaborate with them for articles or work together with them to practice testing. Interesting enough, there was one thing common between most of these passionate testers (who have made significant contribution to the field of software testing) which was their association with AST. Knowing this was convincing enough for me to checkout what AST was all about and what it has been doing. The member:The fact that non-profit organisation for software testing like AST exists is itself a big relief. The purpose with which we started Tea-time with Testers and the mission and purpose of AST has some much in common. Knowing that back then was a great validation for me as a novice tester with passion for the craft of testing. The people connected with AST had already made big impression on me and there was no[…]

  • (clj 6) Three chapters in one year

    It's been a bit more than a year since I posted my first blog post about learning Clojure. And it's been five months since my last blog post about it. So far I've made it through the first three chapters1 of "Clojure for the Brave and True". Instead of commenting on my learning pace at the start of every post, I've decided that this pace is the pace that works for me at this time, so there's no need to keep revisiting the topic. Something I do want to mention is that one thing that triggered me to do some more Clojure was this episode of Gene Kim's excellent Idealcast podcast with Michael Nygard, in which they spend some time talking about Clojure. Vim macros The exercises at the end of chapter 3 got me to try out a lot of things, so I got bored having to type in the commands to copy a line (yy), paste it (p), replace it by its evaluation (c!$), comment it out (gcc), and add a "=>" to mark it as output. So I learned about Vim macros and recorded that sequence to run when I hit @c. At the end of my (clj 4) post I mentioned I might have to do this. Guess that moment came sooner than I expected. Read more… (6 min remaining to read)

  • ZAGREB21 2021, Zagreb, Croatia

    ZAGREB21 2021, Zagreb, Croatia I’ve ran this race last year for the first time. As last year, the race was originally scheduled for March, but it was cancelled because of COVID-19. This year, it was rescheduled for May. Official time 1:47:23. Strava says it’s my “2nd best estimated Half-Marathon effort (1:46:11)”. I was hoping to beat my half-marathon record (1:45) for a few minutes, but it didn’t happen. You can see me cross the finish line at YouTube (around 1:53:23).

  • The Long Haul

    I've been both the lead of my team and a tester on that team for a year now. Getting answers, adapting to change, and identifying solutions have completely different time horizons in each of these roles. Tester experiments Testing experiments can run quickly. A testing experiment might look like this: Call an API Inspect the output Compare that to the specification Question whether either or both need changing Talk to a developer about the changes Update the specification and/or tests All of that happens within minutes or hours, or days if schedules are extremely incompatible and asynchronous communication is failing. I can be confident in the experiment's outcome. I can weigh the relative merits of caring vs. not caring about a particular error response code or required field, and leave my work at work. The next time I see a particular error response, I know what to look for and where changes might be needed. A failing test is evidence that something used to work in a particular way. Team lead experiments Team lead experiments take longer. A team lead experiment might look something more like this: Team members complain that it's hard to get their ideas in during refinement. I mention this to the talking-dominant team member at a 1-on-1. Talking-dominant team member dominates following refinement. I remind talking-dominant team member in Slack about our previous conversation. Talking-dominant team member spills over their allotted time during big unit meeting. I bring both of these instances in our 1-on-1, sharing[…]

  • Month in Review: April 2021

    Month in Review: April 2021 A week late on my monthly review but nevertheless here we go! With lockdown rules being more relaxed, I made a conscious effort this month to spend more quality time with friends and family. I also met up with my old team at News for drinks which was really great as it was the first time I've seen them again in person since lockdown. Anyway, on to the highlights! Zoopla WorkFeeling really settled now here at Zoopla. It's been a busy April for me as I try to be more effective in my role. I made some proposals on how we can improve the RFC (Request for Comments) process here and it was well received by the rest of the Engineering Leads. It's still pretty much work in progress but just visualising it makes it easier to communicate the areas where it needs improvement. I've also been contributing now to the Quality Engineering hiring process by reviewing technical tasks and will soon shadow screening calls. We've had a new starter who joined us which is awesome so I made a new starter template based off one of the existing templates and tailor it more to be focused on Quality Engineering. With Zoopla's rebrand, I've also zooplified my laptop! Yes it's a made up word.. I've also been part of a new team to help speed up the current pipeline that we have so been involved in kick off sessions and bounce ideas on what we can do to improve it.[…]

  • Five for Friday – May 7, 2021

    it’s been a good week – as far as weeks go over the past 15 months. Here are your Friday links: I got my first vaccine shot this week (Moderna). Here’s how to get yours.I’m speaking at Testing Festival next week. Lots of great talks there as well.I’m reading The Culture Map. I’m halfway through, and even after managing globally distributed team for many years, I’ve learned a lot about how I can do it better.I don’t get to do any real dev work anymore, but I live vicariously through my team, and articles like this one on branch optimization.I am, as you’d expect, partial to articles that compare anything musical to leadership. This one is good on several other merits as well – What Separates Great Leaders From the Okay-ish Ones?

  • Welles / nietes

    Deze week moest ik (wederom) voor een coronatest., de vorige keer was 19 juni 2020.  Ik was gelukkig- weet ik sinds vandaag- negatief. Ik ben nog niet zo vaak blij geweest dat ik negatief was en niet positief. Ondanks dat mensen mij iedere keer zeggen dat ik toch wat '' positiever' moet zijn …Maar blijkbaar was ik dus 'gewoon verkouden'... dat is al waardeloos genoeg trouwens....maar...Voor corona was je verkouden, snoot je je neus, nam je een paracetamol, voelde je je 'k*t*/ waardeloos en ging je gewoon door. Je kon écht wel een dagje op 'minder dan optimaal' werken. Nu: test, in quarantaine...je neus snuiten en wacht op de uitslag... een paracetamol nemen, behalve k/-*t* ben je ook zenuwachtig/ onzeker over de testuitslag en kan je alleen online/ in quarantaine door...Waag het niet om naar je werkplek te gaan.... Waar je voorheen met een pakjes zakdoekjes en neusspray uit kwam... nu ben je zoals de Lepra-patiënt vroeger.... hoe DURF je ook maar in de buurt van anderen te komen....kuchje... niezen... AAARRRHGGGGHHHH!!!!Behalve dat je je dus ellendig voelt door je verkoudheid, zit je dus OOK in de onzekerheid over die test. Het voelt toch als een soort examen én je kunt nergens heen én je - ik in ieder geval wel- zorgen of je niet iemand anders hebt geïnfecteerd.Daarmee bedacht ik me dat niet alleen het 'hebben van covid-19' een impact heeft, maar dus ook het 'simpel hebben' van verkoudheden, griepjes - in mijn geval - neusvliesontsteking- kent nu een andere beleving,[…]

  • 2021/05/07 Book Review: The New Corner Office, Chapter 2 – Get the Rhythm Right

    Welcome to my second post in a five part series where each week I review and breakdown a chapter from the book “The New Corner Office: How the Most Successful People Work From Home”, by Laura Vanderkam (not an affiliate link). You can find chapter 1, “Manage by Task, Not Time” here. Get the Rhythm Right By giving yourself a good rhythm, it allows you to know when your work starts and ends, but also manage your energy through the day. Remote working means there is less pressure to work the same hours as the manager, as it can be uncomfortable walking past them to leave when your day is over. I’ve been there, as a former manager would be the first in and last out, and felt like I wasn’t doing enough every time. Laura shares an example of how remote working and changing your hours can work great for those who work with people in different time zones, where they work four hours in the morning, and then four hours at night to interact with their team in Asia, as before they would just spend the time watching TV or surfing the internet, so this break in the day means they get more family time as well as enjoying their afternoons. For a while during lockdown I would take a two-hour lunch break, and then make up the hour at night once my son was asleep. I too would just be gaming or browsing the internet, whereas the[…]

  • Let down by the Realworld app

    This week, I finally got to making space in my calendar to pair up with Hamid Riaz on start of creating a new exploratory testing course centered around yet another test target: the Realworld App. Drawn in by the promise of "mother of all demo apps" and the lovely appearance of a programmer community who had contributed examples for the demo app frontends and backends in so many sets of technology, I had high expectations. I wanted to create a course that would teach the parts of exploratory testing that are hard and we only get to in good agile teams that have their quality game in shape. Instead, I was reminded again that demo apps without the active agile team, no matter how good the original developer may have been, never get to the point of having their quality game in shape. The first example implementation I picked up from the list was a end-to-end testing demo setup, only to learn it had been years since it was last updated (sigh), and the most basic of the instructions on how to get it running relied on half-docker (good), half local OS, and local OS was expected to be anything but what I had - Windows. While I have worked my way through of setting all too many projects that expect mac / linux to build on my work Windows, I did not feel up for the task today. So next option. Next I picked up a nodejs implementation, no dockerizing involved but[…]

  • Pink Tax on Access to Agile Heroes

    Pink Tax on Access to Agile Heroes It is a year of celebration, 20 years since the Agile Manifesto. We see people coming together to discuss and present time and events leading up to it, reflect on the time and events after it, and aspire for futures that allow for better than we ever had. Today, one of those events popped on my timeline in Twitter. Join us for #deliverAgilelive! on 5/13 with Nancy Van Schooenderwoert, @lauriewilliams, @rebeccawb, @JuttaEckstein & Beth Andres-Beck. They'll talk about the early days of #Agile, being part of a change movement & what lies ahead for Agile. Register: https://t.co/C5YAq7ip8q #devs— Agile Alliance (@AgileAlliance) May 6, 2021 I was carefully excited on the idea to hear from some of the early agile heroes who were around but not at Snowbird. Until I clicked on the link to realize that access to my heroes, so rarely available, is a paid event and I have heard the perspective others in Snowbird amplified in large scale free online events almost a little too much this year. I have two problems with this on *Agile Alliance* in particular. First of all, by paywalling this early group they limit the public's access to this group - and they were already limited by not being in Snowbird. Second, asking this money from people like myself who really want to hear from my agile heroes is a form of pink tax. The pink tax refers to the broad tendency for products marketed specifically toward women to be more expensive than those marketed for men, despite[…]

  • Just Automate the Testing

    Just Automate the Testing  The Association for Software Testing is crowd-sourcing a book, Navigating the World as a Context-Driven Tester, which aims to provide responses to common questions and statements about testing from a context-driven perspective. It's being edited by Lee Hawkins who is posing questions on Twitter,  LinkedIn,  Slack, and the AST mailing list and then collating the replies, focusing on practice over theory.I've decided to contribute by answering briefly, and without a lot of editing or crafting, by imagining that I'm speaking to someone in software development who's acting in good faith, cares about their work and mine, but doesn't have much visibility of what testing can be. Perhaps you'd like to join me?--00--"Let's Just Automate the Testing"Yes, let's talk about how automation can help us test! I'd usually start by trying to understand what problem you want to solve but as we don't have that let's start with some ideas about what you might want to automate. At one end of a spectrum, perhaps there is some repetitive confirmatory work that humans currently do that is time-consuming and boring and is amenable to being implemented in code? That seems plausible as a target. We'd probably want to consider effort and value factors such as the costs associated with developing and maintaining the automation, the risks it would mitigate, and the potential multipliers that it could bring, such as documenting behaviour, and being able run in different environments.At the other, perhaps there is a way of automating the thinking work of a[…]

I'd probably be more nuanced and perhaps try to capture the intent with something like this: we test it to help increase the chances that people using it for the tasks we expected get value from it. If I'm testing the product or feature, I might explore who is likely to be using it, the things they might use it for, and what they would hope to get from it. I'll also be interested in why we built this particular solution, what else we tried, and why the others were rejected.I'll be expecting to constrain the budget for my testing to a level that is proportionate to the business value we expect to generate.This naturally means that I[…]

  • How to test your binge-watching application?

    A test plan outlines the approach for testing a specific feature before it is delivered to the customer. There are folks who take a different approach to creating test plans  depending on factors like business needs, based on automation frameworks available and the metrics to be measured. By considering Netflix subscription and cancellation as an example I am sharing my thought process for creating a test plan.The post How to test your binge-watching application? appeared first on Synapse QA.
