What is hell made of in Software Testing?
- Nobody talks the same language about tests.
- Nobody shares the same practice level to test pieces of code.
- Nobody knows when to use tests in a software production process.
- Not ease to understand each other.
- Difficult to converge to quality as a common goal.
- Very hard to secure the added value over deliveries.
The software industry needs a methodological framework to guide software production with testing. Such a framework is GOST: Gears Of Software Testing, to bring a holistic approach to product quality and to get high-quality softwares.
GOST is designed as an overall, adaptative test strategy to sustain agile development. It is divided into ordered blocks:
1. Approach: a manifest with its own values and principles about an extended test notion
2. Typological Repository: a body of knowledge structured by thematic typologies
3. Method: guidelines for implementation
4. Mastering: a technology repository and a training program with workouts
5. Workflow: practices to make Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery, Continuous Deployment in relation to testing
6. Navigation: driving a target strategy
My name is Xavier Pigeon. I am a Software Engineer and working as a Quality Leader to breathe life into Software Craftsmanship and to drive strategies in test automation. I love substantiating concepts with enlightening infographics. You can find more information about my projects at xavierpigeon.com. Find me at LinkedIn and let us share ideas and contents.
GOST is not only intended for software developers, testers or architects but also for any player engaged in building software. You also need GOST as a product owner, scrum master, agile coach, etc.
