STARWEST 2008 - Software Testing Conference


Using Failure modes to Power up Your Testing

When a tester uncovers a defect, it usually gets fixed. The tester validates the fix and may add the test to a regression test suite. Often, both the test and defect are then forgotten. Not so fast-defects hold clues about where other defects may be hiding and often can help the team learn to not make the same mistake again. Dawn Haynes explores methods you can use to generate new test ideas and improve software reliability at the same time.
