Bugs on Bugs! Hidden Testing Lessons from the Looney Tunes Gang

Robert Sabourin, AmiBug.com Inc

Robert Sabourin finds that characters from the Looney Tunes Gang-Bugs Bunny, Road Runner, Foghorn Leghorn, Porky Pig, Daffy Duck, Michigan J. Frog, and others-provide wonderful metaphors for the challenges of testing. From Bugs we learn about personas and the risks
of taking the wrong turn in Albuquerque. Michigan J. Frog teaches valuable lessons about bug isolation and how ambiguous pronouns can
dramatically change the meaning of our requirements. The Tasmanian Devil not only teaches us about the risks of following standard
procedures but also shows us practical approaches to stress and robustness testing. And, of course, we learn about boundary conditions
and challenging physics from Yosemite Sam. Bugs teach lessons for the young at heart-novice and experienced alike. Robert shares some powerful heuristic models that you can apply right away.

  • The value of modeling personas for test design
  • How metaphors can help us understand and communicate
  • Heuristic models are not only useful-they're fun
