  • 5. Agile Story
    On WordPress.com we deploy code to production twenty or thirty times a day and anyone in the company can do it.
    The most important thing isnt necessarily how perfect code is when you send it out, but how quickly you can revert if you need to so the cost of a mistake is really low, under a minute of brokenness.- Matt Mullenweg

  • 6. How to speed up?
    No thrown over the wall software
    Transparency
    No heavyweight document
    This is for contractor who dont know about for last few month
    No strict entrance and exit criteria with signoffs
    We work close with DEV and PM
    No sophisticated defect tracking process
    Sophisticated means redundancy
    Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
    Automation
    No sliver bullet

  • 9. Testability
    What is testability?
    If testing is questioning a product in order to evaluate it, then testability is anything that makes it easier to question or evaluate that product.
    The testability of software is determined by factors such as:
    Controllability
    Observability
    Isolateability
    Separation of concerns
    Understandability
    Automatability

  • 10. Why testability matters
    More testability, more test
    More test, less bug
    Less bug, more quality
    More quality, more $

    Process
    QA case review
    Technology
    Using ruby instead of python?
    SQLite helps?
    Virtualization helps?
    Working procedure
    How about auto rerun?
    How about prepare everything and let me send the request?
    How about using a voice control rerun system

    High-efficiency
    Self-motive
    Self-learning
