Lessons learned from testing a mission critical and complex system (Melanie Hopwood)
Limited Capacity seats available

In this Agile software development environment, are you working on legacy software that has an impact on our nation's security? Or are you asking yourself how can I do test driven development with such a huge legacy code base? Would it take you forever and a day to test everything in your system? We have felt these pains and have some suggestions on how to utilize user data, metrics and risk planning to resolve these hard questions.
Learning Outcomes:
  • Ideas on how to automate test scenarios that involve sensors
  • How to create test scenarios to ensure performance of an aging code base
  • How to maximize the value from exploratory testing of a complex system
  • How to best integrate live data into automated testing for complex scenarios
  • How to establish criteria to gain consensus of an appropriate level of testing on a complex system
