Let’s continue our series interviewing French testers. The second one to get involved in the game by accepting to answer our questions is Thierry Gerbeau, currently Lead QA at A Little Market (Etsy France), the e-commerce platform for independent resellers of handmade goods.
Here are our reading recommendations of the week #19. We are first suggesting 2 articles around a recurrent subject: automatic checking and how to deal with flaky tests. Then a feedback about how challenging it is to be a software tester in a Continuous Deployment environment. Finally, the last article is an analogy with restaurants that intend to help testers introducing themselves to developers.
I was at the MiXiT conference in Lyon last week to co-host a workshop/game with Ard and François using TestSphere that the community of testers (at least those who follow the Ministry Of Testing news) can not ignore.
The workshop is structured around the card deck which has several categories (techniques, heuristics, feelings, quality aspects and patterns) and each card describes an idea that helps the participants to think about a story they have to tell.
Welcome to our weekly reading recommendations!
This week you can read about the following topics:
- TestBash Brighton’s online videos
- Testing Trapeze – April 2017: Test automation for machine learning & testing randomness
- Looking for good problems instead of great ideas
We are starting this week a new series where we decided to give the floor to French testers. The first one to get involved in the game by accepting to answer our questions is Julien Blanc, who started his career at BlaBlaCar and is currently QA Engineer at Deezer, well known French streaming music player.
We have seen in a previous post that it was possible to measure the load time of web pages from a web console. The data collection is fast and accurate, but we stay dependent on the network where we are localized. It can be interesting to measure a load time of web page around the globe
Indeed the measures from the web console are correct only for your environment/web connection. What’s the measure in another place of the world?
Is there an impact? I would like to ask “Yes”. Now we will try to prove it.
Welcome to our reading recommendations of the week!
This week, we suggest you three articles:
- How automation can go wrong and break people lives
- Some tips to get into testing of machine learning and predictive analytics
- Riskiest Assumption Tests (RAT) to replace the MVP
We are thrilled today to announce a new meetup that will take place on March 30th at 12:15 in the premises of AVM. We are lucky to welcome James Lyndsay who, in Lyon with his family, kindly offered to host a workshop in his spare time. Please go to the Meetup page where you will find all the details.
Warning, RSVP is mandatory and places are very limited.
Hope to see you there.
