Parklife!


A significant part of testing is thinking up questions it might be interesting to ask, identifying ways that they could be asked, choosing a question and a way, and setting off. 

Parklife.

I find that I can usually think of more questions than I have time for. 

Parklife.

I find that there is usually more than one way to address them.

I find that after setting off, exploration usually throws up observations that prompt additional questions.

I know that I will never be able to address all of the questions in all of the ways.

So it's key to be able to pick the ones I think are most likely to give information which will be most important to the people who matter in a cost-effective way at the right time.

The rest have to be parked.

The result? As testers, our view of the system under test will never be as high resolution as it could theoretically be.

My advice? Accept that your vision will be blurred and embrace ...
