Experiences of Test Automation: Case Studies of Software Test Automation
Experiences of Test Automation: Case Studies of Software
Software test automation has moved beyond a luxury to become a necessity. Applications and systems have grown ever larger and more complex, and manual testing simply cannot keep up. As technology changes, and more organizations move into agile development, testing must adapt—and quickly. Test automation is essential, but poor automation is wasteful—how do you know where your efforts will take you? Authors Dorothy Graham and Mark Fewster wrote the field’s seminal text, Software Test Automation, which has guided many organizations toward success. Now, in Experiences of Test Automation, they reveal test automation at work in a wide spectrum of organizations and projects, from complex government systems to medical devices, SAP business process development to Android mobile apps and cloud migrations. This book addresses both management and technical issues, describing failures and successes, brilliant ideas and disastrous decisions and, above all, offers specific lessons you can use. Coverage includes Test automation in agile development How management support can make or break successful automation The importance of a good testware architecture and abstraction levels Measuring benefits and Return on Investment (ROI) Management issues, including skills, ...

Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship
Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software
Even bad code can function. But if code isn’t clean, it can bring a development organization to its knees. Every year, countless hours and significant resources are lost because of poorly written code. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Noted software expert Robert C. Martin presents a revolutionary paradigm with Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship . Martin has teamed up with his colleagues from Object Mentor to distill their best agile practice of cleaning code “on the fly” into a book that will instill within you the values of a software craftsman and make you a better programmer—but only if you work at it. What kind of work will you be doing? You’ll be reading code—lots of code. And you will be challenged to think about what’s right about that code, and what’s wrong with it. More importantly, you will be challenged to reassess your professional values and your commitment to your craft. Clean Code is divided into three parts. The first describes the principles, patterns, and practices of writing clean code. The second part consists of several case studies of increasing complexity. Each case study is an exercise in cleaning up code—of transforming a code base that has some problems into one that is sound and efficient. The third part i...

Use Case Levels of Test: Innovate & Work Smart in Software Test Design
Use Case Levels of Test: Innovate & Work
Innovation and ways of working smarter often arise from the “cross-pollination” of ideas from multiple disciplines of software engineering. This book presents a strategy for software test design based on the idea of use case levels of test combined with high bang for the buck ideas from software testing, Quality Function Deployment (QFD), software reliability’s operational profiles, Structured Analysis and Design’s C.R.U.D. matrix, and formal methods like model-based specification and discrete math for testers. The goal of this “cross-pollination” is to provide you the tester with a test design strategy to:Evaluate a set of use cases for test adequacy, determining if you are missing any essential for testingBudget test design time to maximize reliability and minimize testing costStrike a balance between breadth of coverage of all use cases and depth of coverage for the most frequently used, critical use cases.Provide a step by step process for when to use the plethora of test techniques covered in so many testing books helping address the plea “Just tell me where to start!”Decompose the big problem of test design for a whole system or application into manageable chunks by using levels of test – not of units, modules or subsystems – but paths through the system...

User Stories Applied: For Agile Software Development
User Stories Applied: For Agile Software
Thoroughly reviewed and eagerly anticipated by the agile community, User Stories Applied offers a requirements process that saves time, eliminates rework, and leads directly to better software. The best way to build software that meets users' needs is to begin with "user stories": simple, clear, brief descriptions of functionality that will be valuable to real users. In User Stories Applied, Mike Cohn provides you with a front-to-back blueprint for writing these user stories and weaving them into your development lifecycle. You'll learn what makes a great user story, and what makes a bad one. You'll discover practical ways to gather user stories, even when you can't speak with your users. Then, once you've compiled your user stories, Cohn shows how to organize them, prioritize them, and use them for planning, management, and testing. User role modeling: understanding what users have in common, and where they differ Gathering stories: user interviewing, questionnaires, observation, and workshops Working with managers, trainers, salespeople and other "proxies" Writing user stories for acceptance testing Using stories to prioritize, set schedules, and estimate release costs Includes end-of-chapter practice questions and exercises User Stories Applied will be invaluable to ev...

Case Studies in Neural Data Analysis: A Guide for the Practicing Neuroscientist (Computational Neuroscience Series)
Case Studies in Neural Data Analysis: A Guide
A practical guide to neural data analysis techniques that presents sample datasets and hands-on methods for analyzing the data.As neural data becomes increasingly complex, neuroscientists now require skills in computer programming, statistics, and data analysis. This book teaches practical neural data analysis techniques by presenting example datasets and developing techniques and tools for analyzing them. Each chapter begins with a specific example of neural data, which motivates mathematical and statistical analysis methods that are then applied to the data. This practical, hands-on approach is unique among data analysis textbooks and guides, and equips the reader with the tools necessary for real-world neural data analysis.The book begins with an introduction to MATLAB, the most common programming platform in neuroscience, which is used in the book. (Readers familiar with MATLAB can skip this chapter and might decide to focus on data type or method type.) The book goes on to cover neural field data and spike train data, spectral analysis, generalized linear models, coherence, and cross-frequency coupling. Each chapter offers a stand-alone case study that can be used separately as part of a targeted investigation. The book includes some mathematical discussion but does not focu...
