Improving QA on PHP development projects
Comments are closed.
Good overview of how to QA
Good resources were discussed but the prep for this talk was way off - examples were too fast, ran a half hour over and STILL had enough material for another hour. Needed to focus on a particular aspect, setting up a basic QA setup. Folks were here to learn about it so no need to preach about the benifits of QA, attendees knew they wanted it already.
Went too long over, but some good content.
Good info for the first 45 minutes.
But he should have QA'd his talk - measuring how long it would take.
The thesis of the talk was a good one. "Get your information in a consistent automated way and make it accessible to the team" I think the problem was that idea got lost in all of the detail. I think it would have been better if less time was spent on unit testing examples and a bit more time was spent on the other pieces of the puzzle; measuring and automation. Nonetheless, a solid talk. I wish we had more time.
Spent too much time on specific examples of testing. From the number of slides he skipped through to get to the end, he had enough for like THREE HOURS not 45 minutes. Smart guy, talked down to us a bit, trying to shame people into doing testing. Overall a good talk.
