Quality is delighting customers
A ‘passing’ test doesn’t mean ‘no problem.’ It means no problem ‘observed’. This time. With these inputs. So far. On my machine.” – Michael Bolton In 2013 .
In 2013 as many as 88% of the organizations responding to a Version One “State of Agile Development” survey confirmed that they were practicing agile development and that number has only gone up since. Agile, obviously, is defined by an approach of short sprints, iterative development and short release cycles. Given the apparent time pressure on the test cycles testing expert Bolton’s tune would ring true to many in software product development today (sorry couldn’t resist the lame pun). The objective is faster testing and more code coverage so less “technical debt” is passed on. So what’s the way out? Many have considered test automation to be the answer.
