Hey Patrick,I know Google and IBM actually just partnered with the University of Washington (where I'm a student) to provide coursework for cloud computing. Any idea if they might be bringing any modules from the Test Engineering department any time soon? I'm really interested in the material. Thanks
No, but our goal is to roll out testing as part of all of these courses. In general, testing software is under represented in schools. In "industrial" level software companies testing is extremely important and valued, but it often left to us to teach the concepts once students arrive. Google, for instance, has a huge emphasis on on-the-job learning about test.
Hi Patrick:I liked the way they have started the testing"Phase I - Gaining Domain expertise and Exploratory Testing".I believe for any kind of testing we do we need to have a over all functional knowledge of the product or the application we are developing.Even if we are testing a particular module it's good to know about this module and also what are the other modules which get effected due to the changes in modules.Gaining the functional knowledge and doing some exploratory testing will really help to find many of the escaped defects.I do lot of exploratory testing on different products and i have quite succesfull in that.I even crashed IPOD 4 times with my testing skills,ofcourse the 4 time ipod has gone for a toss :)Testing software is not only under represented in schools but also in some industries.The other day my HR asked me for some references in testing and when i asked about the pay they say that we don't pay to tester's as much as we pay to Developers.I then told to her forget about any reference from me.
Will this course be offered up online in the spirit of MIT's OCW, and UCBerkeley's videos on youtube so people could play along at home?
Adam,As I understand it, the course is a project course. There's minimal lecture — not much to record at all, really. It's all about getting real-world experience, in line with the philosophy behind the Informatics students' (future) degrees.
Hi,Any thoughts on how do i invoke a a Jmeter listener bypassing its GUI?Thanks,Sheetal
