How to have a nice dialogue about performance

10.03.2015   
Among the most challenging subjects for managers across industries, performance related conversations with team members is always somewhere on top. Now why is this so complicated? Isn’t it something like “Hey Jack, you’ve done a good job but I know you can make it even better…”?  

ErrorProne.NET. Part 1

30.03.2016   
I have been itching for a long time to make an analyzer which would help me catch different errors, specific in varying degrees to the .NET platform. Many of these errors are caught perfectly well by R#, but we always want to create our own stuff, right? Besides, Roslyn analyzers are seamlessly integrated into the build process, they can be used at night (*) and may contain rules specific to your product.

Participants and "customers" in the testing process

In this article, let’s consider who could be the potential stakeholders and consumers of testing services. To do that, we need to answer the following questions:

The Agile Testing Manifesto. Part 2

17.07.2017   
In this article we will continue our analysis of the Testing Manifesto written by Samantha Laing and Karen Greaves with the next principle:

“Not Invented Here” Syndrome

11.08.2015   
A couple of years ago I made a short series of notes on the patterns of behavior: Technical Debt, Refactoring Syndrome and The Second-System Effect. The time has come to discuss another subject, probably the most famous and popular pattern of behavior: the Not Invented Here (NIH) syndrome.

7 Principles of Testing - Part 2

19.09.2016   
In our first article we talked about the first and second principle of software testing - Testing shows presence of defects and exhaustive testing is impossible. We will now talk about principle three and four. 

No Need for a Grid

15.04.2015   
Every enterprise application features some sort of the grid.  A grid being is an interactive table that presents a list of data with rows and columns. The most used features of the grid are paging, sorting and filtering. There are a lot of open source and proprietary grid components available for web building on top of jQuery and/or AngularJS. Some of them are quite code heavy and have steep learning curve. Moreover, none of them makes any assumptions about your server-side code, so they either work only on a client requiring you to load all data to the client beforehand or require you to write some sort of adapter functions that translate client-side messages to server-side messages.

Using email in a virtual team

22.09.2015   
Historically, many virtual teams have relied on e-mail as one of the main channels for asynchronous communication. Although now there is a tendency to transition from e-mail to more high tech tools, it is, nevertheless, still very much used in day to day communication. According to leaders around 80% of the questions they receive are not urgent and can be addressed by e-mail. Another 15% can be solved with chat or instant messaging, and the remaining 5% are solved over the phone.

So That’s What “Regression Testing” Is!

16.11.2015   
There seem to be a lot of testers which think that “Regression testing is when we retest everything all over again”. Well, yeah, but why is it called “Regression testing” and not “Retesting everything all over again”?

On Software Development and the Book “Applying UML and Patterns”

09.06.2015   
A standard learning process has an interesting feature. Once we decide to learn something new, we start reading textbooks, attending courses and obtaining new knowledge by all available means. After some time we say “Enough!” to ourselves, give up education and move on to the practice (in the early stages of the theory there are some simple practical problems to solve, but they have no significant value).
