  • Product Mapping and Quality Insight

    Product Mapping and Quality Insight Previously I talked about project management and a quality focus. Here I want to take both down a level to get a little more practical, specifically around the idea of how that quality focus strongly encourages delivery teams to create product maps. It’s those product maps that will give a team the first insights into what quality is going to look like. This notion or product mapping is where I think product management (and thus product mangers) and product development (and thus product developers) start to to intersect. Since there are many very specific ways to craft a product map in a given tool — including using no tool at all! — I’m going to remain largely agnostic of tool concerns here and instead just focus on the idea of product mapping as a technique. The product map, as an artifact, is of course also important. So what is this “product map” thing? Well, the product map is generally a high-level visual summary that maps out the vision and direction of your product over time. The goal here is to convey the strategic direction for the product and tie the product direction back to the strategy for the company as a whole. Crucially, it’s important to note that a product map is not one over-arching view of the entire product. In fact, there will likely be multiple product maps. Specifically, and I think this is a good way to frame it, you will have one product map per market promise.[…]

  • Creating a Quality Strategy

    Creating a Quality Strategy In my last post, I introduced the concept of the Quality Maturity Model: a series of behaviors that help teams attain various attributes of quality in their software. One of the things it’s important to note is that adopting a Quality Maturity Model requires the whole team to contribute to quality. Quality is not something to be thrown “over the wall” to testers; rather it is a goal that both developers and testers share. But how can you get the whole team to own quality? One way is through the creation of a Quality Strategy. A Quality Strategy is a document that the whole team agrees on together. It’s like a contract that describes how quality software will developed, tested, and released by the team. In this post, I’ll discuss some of the questions you may want to answer in your team’s Quality Strategy. Creating and Grooming Stories:How does the team decide what stories to work on? This could be a decision by the whole team, or by the product owner only. Or the prioritization could be done by someone outside the team. Who grooms the stories to get them ready for development? This could be the whole team or a subset of the team. Ideally, you’d want to have at least the product owner, one developer, and one tester participating. Development Process:How does the team decide who works on which story? It could be that the developers can pick any story from the board, or it could be that[…]

  • API Testing Challenges - How To Use Simulation Mode

    This post and video shows how to use the Simulation Mode in API Challenges. What are the API Challenges? Our API Challenges Application has a fully functional cloud hosted API, and a set of challenges to work through. Overview The API has a simulation mode, this allows you to experiment with different tools in a controlled environment. Watch on YouTube Patreon ad free version Simulation Mode The simulation mode uses hard coded data in responses, but tries to mimic some conditions. e.g. it expects you to post a specific JSON payload or XML payload and responds ‘as if’ you sent it. But… it also checks if you sent valid json, or valid xml, and responds based on your headers e.g. returning XML if you ask for it. The simulator is stateless and does not track your usage, making it deterministic for multiple users. Which means: Entities created do not show in the ‘entities’ call, but can be retrieved by a ‘GET’ Entities deleted do not show in the ‘entities’ and respond to a 404, but the delete for them will return a 200… you can only delete ‘specific’ entities, other entities will respond with a forbidden request. etc. there are ‘inconsistencies’ but they are logical based on the needs of a stateless simulator. Use the actual API that underpins the challenges if you want a ‘real’ API. Try the verbs and payloads listed below as a way of making sure your tooling is setup and you understand the absolute basics[…]

  • API Testing Challenges - How To Use Mirror Mode

    This post and video shows how to use the Mirror Mode in API Challenges. What are the API Challenges? Our API Challenges Application has a fully functional cloud hosted API, and a set of challenges to work through. Mirror Mode The API has a mirror mode, this allows you to experiment with different verbs and configurations. You will see, in your API tool, a response showing you the details of the request that you sent. e.g. GET https://apichallenges.herokuapp.com/mirror/request Will return 200… everything (almost) returns a 200. And… GET http://apichallenges.herokuapp.com/mirror/request Query Params ============ IP ======= 0:0:0:0:0:0:0:1 Headers ======= Accept: */* Content-Length: 0 Host: localhost:4567 User-Agent: insomnia/2021.2.2 Body ==== Only options and head respond differently… because options and head should respond differently. Useful for getting started and getting used to your tooling. If you want the response in XML or JSON then add the relevant Accept header. Try the Mirror Mode Here Mirror Mode Reflections The mirror mode is another way of seeing the ‘true’ request received. You can configure most API tools to use a Proxy like BurpSuite or OwaspZAP and you will see the actual request that the tool sends. You can also use the Insomnia Timeline to see the request. In Postman you can use the Postman Console to see the requests. The Mirror Mode shows you the request received by the server. When run on Localhost there are no intermediate systems so you can see what the tooling sends. When run on apichallenges.herokuapp.com you see that the Heroku[…]

  • The coolest thing in technology?

    The coolest thing in technology? I listen to the podcast Data Driven.  One of the questions that they ask all their guests is: What do you think is the coolest thing in technology?  This article is my answer to that.  The short version is: standards, and the benefits they bring to users.  The longer version is below. Standards might seem the opposite of cool, particularly in the world of technology where the parade of mayfly-like Latest Shiny Things seems to never come to a rest.  It feels like saying the coolest thing about haute couture is its health and safety policies.  (For another thing I’ve written about things that seem opposite to each other, please look at User experience and data quality.)  I hope you will let me explain. The world’s roundest object – a kilogram of silicon. Literally setting the standard for the kilogram. Image credit. Phones I’ll start with an example.  I can go into many different shops on the high street (or online, if I prefer) and buy a mobile phone.  It’s not a big deal – many (but not all) people in my country can afford at least a simple one.  If I wanted to, I could relatively easily get a landline contract instead, which would end up with a phone socket in my home, and I could essentially repeat the mobile-buying experience when I bought a phone to plug into that socket. With either kind of phone I could phone someone in Australia if I wanted to, as long as[…]

  • Vote Testers!

    Vote Testers!   The Association for Software Testing board elections are happening shortly. Terms are two years long but staggered so that half of the board is up for re-election every year. I've just finished my first term and I've decided to stand again, for a few reasons. First, and accuse me of whatever cheesiness you like here, I truly believe in the AST's ethical code and mission: The Association for Software Testing is dedicated to advancing the understanding of the science and practice of software testing according to Context-Driven principles. It's important to me that I remain a practitioner of testing, and I roll my expertise and experience into the context when I practice.  Second, and with another helping from the cheeseboard, the AST is emotionally significant to me. When I started testing it was the organisation that Lessons Learned in Software Testing led me to, and its Black Box Software Testing courses helped to culture and mould my intuitions about testing and how I wanted to test. Third, and onto the coffee now for the business talk, I feel like I have unfinished work that I want to complete. Next week there are hustings and the candidates have been asked to provide answers to a handful of questions. I thought I'd publish mine here as I did for a similar set after the 2019 elections.Diversity How do you intend to promote diversity within the AST? How could AST promote diversity, of all kinds, within our own organization and within the[…]

    It’s been, if you believe it, a busier than normal week in weasel-land. Even so, I found a few interesting and insightful things on the internet that I think are worth sharing. If you’re not vaccinated, here’s how to sign up in the US. Just go.There’s some good stuff in this post about Agile at 20. There’s also a bit of the “we do agile wrong and it doesn’t work” strawman in play, but I still think it’s worth the read.I preach the value of emotional intelligence frequently. This article says that high emotional intelligence correlates with good decision making – and I agree.Dan North wrote a damn fine article talking about testingI never knew this existed. For those of you with not enough to do, there’s always overemployment.

  • How Would You Test A Text Field?

    How Would You Test A Text Field? Long, long time ago we used a question "How would you test a text field?" in interview situations. We learned that there seemed to be a correlation of how well the person had their game together to test for such a simple question, and we noted there were four categories of response types we could see, repeatedly. Every aspiring tester and a lot of developers aspiring to turn into testers approached the problem as simple inputs and automate it all approach. They imagined data you can put into the field, and automating data when there is a simple way of imagining recognizing success is a natural starting point. They may imagine easily repeatable dimensions even like different environments or speed, and while they think in terms of automating, they generally automate regression not reliability. Typical misconceptions include thinking hardware you run on always matters (well, it may matter with embedded software and some functionalities we use text fields for) or someone else telling them what to test. It used to be that they talked about someone else's test cases, but with agile, the replacement word is now acceptance criteria. Effectively, they think testing is checking against a listing someone else already created, when it is at most half the work. Functional testers are only a notch stronger than aspiring testers. They come packed with more ideas, but their ideas are dull - like writing SQL into a text field in a system that has no database. It only matters if there is[…]

  • PML#002 - The first full orbit

    TL;DR - Getting involved in "real" work, and getting to know my team. Promise of a big announcement next week which will drive a lot of my upcoming content! 🥳 Prefer this in audio format? Listen to this blog post on Racket. It's the end of my second week at Postman, but in the weird world of LinkedIn's time calculations, when August 1st rolls around, the site will claim that I've been employed by the company for two months. And honestly, in some ways it feels a bit like I have. There's no denying that I've been busy, for better and worse, which is definitely reflected in my achievements for the week; I'll get into this a bit below. Last week's goals: 3/4 completed ⬜ Join the Testers' Hangout at least once. This should have been the easiest one, right? It's just a link in my bookmarks. I even tried putting time into my calendar on a couple of days this week; yet when the time rolled around, I found that I was either in the middle of something, or - because my family are at home - I wanted to give them the benefit of my downtime. I'll roll this one over, but honestly I think I need to spend less time thinking about it, and more time just doing it.☑️ Test something which my team are actively working on. I ticked this one off early, by jumping straight onto testing a time-sensitive issue on Tuesday, and learned a[…]

  • Tester roles and services

    Tester roles and services An interesting image came across on my twitter timeline. It looked like my favorite product management space person had been thinking and modeling, and created an illustration of the many hats people usually have around product creation. Looking at the picture made me wonder where is testing? Is it really that one hat for one category of hats? Is it the reverse side of every single one of these hats? Don't pictures like this make other people's specialties more invisible?As I was talking about this with a colleague (like you do when you have something on your mind), I remembered I had created a listing of the services testing provides where I work. And reading through that list, I could create my own image of the many hats of testing, Feature Shaper focuses on hat we think of as feature testing. Release Shaper focuses on what we think of as release testing. Code Shaper focuses on what we think of as unit testing. Lab Technician builds systems that are required to test systems. On-Caller provides quick feedback on changes and features so that no one has to carry major responsibilities alone.  Designer figures out how we know what we don't know about the products. Scoper ensures there's less promiseware and more empirical evidence. Strategist sets us on a journey to the future we want for this project, team and organization. Pipeline Architect helps people with their chosen tools and drives the tooling forward. Parafunctionalist does testing on the top skills areas extending functional: security, reliability, performance and usability. Automation Developer extends[…]

  • Let’s talk about Risk, baby (oh and Covid)

    Let’s talk about Risk, baby (oh and Covid) Pun reference video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydrtF45-y-g As I face another month of covid lockdowns in Sydney, there are some anxieties floating around in my head that I’d like to get off my chest. This is a rambling blog post and reflection piece of the state of society as I see it. Vaccine Risks So Astrazena has gotten a pretty bad rep. I was initially pretty nervous to get the jab. But I have a higher risk of blood clots from my birth control (and yes I know they are different types of clots). I thought reducing the risk of Covid was worth it. First short of AstraZeneca #VaccineSelfie pic.twitter.com/yDCzAqZl8B— Sam Connelly (@BugHunterSam) July 23, 2021 As a software tester I’m surrounded by risk and trying to identify how things can go wrong. Mitigating this risk was an easy choice. The 38 year old women who died last week may have tried to get a vaccine. Her death could have been completely avoidable. It also turns out that pfizer may have a similar risk of blood clots of astrazeneca. Covid itself has an even higher chance of causing these types of blood clots. If we are heading towards a high risk outbreak like what Europe saw in January 2021, by being vaccinated for my age group it may cause 1.6 blood clots but prevent 3 deaths for every 100,000 people.
