November QA Sig
"Color-Aided Test Design"
Color coding theory is a method of test creation which aims at giving value by shaping, finding relevance and organizing tests based on overarching and broad testing concepts. By categorizing tests via high level test concepts (designated by color) testers can quickly and easily focus their aim and maximize reliable test coverage in a collaborative method to expose risks in the test plan. In this interactive session, Ben Brodsky,a QA Engineer at LexisNexis, talks about his experiences using a method pioneered by testing expert and McGill University professor Robert Sabourin to use color to aid test design and reporting.
