Found an interesting article on generating test data entitled Testometer – Triangle Test.
Here’s a blurb from the site to entice you to go there, give it a whirl, it’s quite good, I managed to score a 7 out of 10:
“This is probably one of the most common question in software testing interview. This problem was first introduced by Myers, who was one of the first person to treat Software Testing as a different subject all together. This test check your ability to think about generating test data in a given condition”
Someone told me something interesting the other day…”Silo’s destroy Scrum”, which I found interesting but never fully understood the impact until today. We’re approaching the end of our sprint and only one of the stories has been completed, a severe bottleneck was building up with the test work and when the team approached the “tester” within the team that was assigned to us with the offer to have them help out with testing, they were told that only she is allowed to “sign off” testing. I explained that this would cause the sprint to fail because there’s no way she could sign everything off in the remaining time but they were not interested, I guess they’re more interested in sticking to their silo’s than the project succeeding. There’s not much more I can do about this other than to point out that the sprint will fail and just let them fail…
