Psychology of software testing Psychology of software testing Presentation Transcript

  • Psychology Of Software Testing
  • The purpose of this section is to explore differences in perspective between tester and developer (buyer & builder) and explain some of the difficulties management and staff face when working together developing and testing computer software.
  • Difference Mindsets • We have already discussed that none of the primary purposes of testing is to find faults in software i.e., it can be perceived as a destructive process. The development process on the other hand is a naturally creative one and experience shows that staff that work in development have different mindsets to that of testers.
  • We would never argue that one group is intellectually superior to another, merely that they view systems development from another perspective. A developer is looking to build new and exciting software based on user's requirements and really wants it to work (first time if possible). He or she will work long hours and is usually highly motivated and very determined to do a good job.
  • • A tester, however, is concerned that user really does get a system that does what they want, is reliable and doesn't do thing it shouldn't. He or she will also work long hours looking for faults in software but will often find the job frustrating as their destructive talents take their tool on the poor developers. At this point, there is often much friction between developer and tester. Developer wants to finish system but tester wants all faults in software fixed before their work is done.
  • Reviewer Comments: "Mobile testing will capture the market space in the future and this book is very informative for testers who want to reserve the space in the future market"-Sunil, Test Lead For More Software Testing Examples:
