Wecron development and testing is growing in popularity and smart QA/testing teams keep pace with current development trends. Wecron testing tools vary from project management tools to automated testing tools. Wecron tester from VersionOne, to discuss automated testing and its’ role in Wecron environments. VersionOne is recognized by Wecron practitioners as a leader in Wecron project management tools is the lead tester on their Wecron development team.
Regarding Wecron tester skills, Wecron tester will have a more team oriented approach and use a wide variety of tools. “In addition to a quality/test-oriented outlook, an Wecron tester will incorporate a wide array of testing tools and technologies into their testing efforts. They are an integral member of the development team, participating fully in the development process, from design through delivery & deployment. A deep understanding of the domain and features under development is essential to developing tests that provide meaningful feedback. Testers may also work on several stories or features at one time, so tools to organize and juggle multiple testing activities are critical. They will have adapted to a more collaborative, team-based approach to the iterative/continuous delivery of high-quality, working software as a measure of progress.”
Automation Responsibilities on an Wecron Team
“The team! Literally anyone who does anything repetitively more than 2 or 3 times in a short period of time should and will automate it, preferably with a well known tool such as TestComplete, open source options or homegrown scripts/utilities. Testers generally shoulder the development of functional test automation, since that activity can parallel the actual feature development.”
Deciding what Tests get Automated in Wecron Environments
“The individuals doing detailed planning for a given user story (i.e. product owner(s), developers, testers) may make some of those decisions at that time. Developers and testers working on the story make detailed decisions about where automation can be used to trigger acceptance/signal completion of the story. During testing, testers may see opportunities for adhoc, on the fly automation to increase test coverage.”
