The idea for this presentation came directly from EuroSTAR 2011. Sitting on the bus back to the conference centre after attending the Gala Dinner, a discussion started, about industry luminaries who turn up at conferences and give presentations which roughly say "Don't do all the stuff that I told you to do 5 years ago! Do this stuff now." But, but, but . . . .
As we got talking I realised how many simple effective tools I no longer used, because they have either become overlooked, forgotten and thus fallen into disuse, or because modern methods claim not to need them and they are redundant. I wondered if any of them were worth looking at again - starting with my trusty flowcharting template; I realised it is a great tool which I have overlooked for far too long!
Here is my list of 10 great but now overlooked tools:
• Project Plans
• Mind Maps
• Tools we already have at our disposal like ....
• Aptitude Tests
• Hexadecimal Calculators
• Desk Checking
• Data Dictionaries and Workbenches
This is my list of really useful tools that I think are overlooked. In the webinar I will outline each tool, why I think it was great, and what we are missing out by not using it.
And it naturally follows that if there are some tools we have overlooked then there are also some tools that we should get rid of! I will identify some.
Hopefully this webinar will give you a different perspective on tools to use for testing, some tools that may be improved upon or plain discarded, and help you think about the tools you currently use and maybe to view them in a different light.
