Test Metrics

Testing is all about measuring: measuring how good an IT product is, triangulating where buggy areas are, estimating residual risk and helping others estimate how much is left to do. To some extent, testing measures itself, too: how much testing work has already been done, how much still remains. And, needless to say, whether you want it or not, testing measures project status and quality, and - indirectly - process quality. It is a lot to cover in 40 minutes.

Bogdan Bereza, Victo, Poland

Bogdan Bereza

Bogdan is known for his pragmatic yet creative approach to quality issues and for his ability to cross-connect between areas such as programming, design, requirements engineering, testing, and project management. Over the years, he has bridged knowledge gaps between technology and psychology, as well as between iterative (including agile) and sequential approaches. He has committed a few books, and many articles as well as conference presentations on these subjects. He is ardent supporter of IREB, co-founder and vice president of ARE. He is a grumpy and critical lover of agile and exploratory, which he teaches at Agile Academy in Sweden.
