Proposed Talks

Naming in testing is also hard

Submitted by Jorge Marin

Talk Abstract:

Software testing does also experience one of the hardest problems in the software world: naming things. In this session we will try define the boundaries of different testing levels and strategies, giving them an appropriate name based on their function. This will help the whole software testing community referring to things by their name rather than explaining a bazillion times what an integration test means to you or your organisation.

This talk will try to interact with the audience by asking questions and asking for hands up. The motivation behind this talk is that every organisation refers to and implements different levels of testing their own way. Some even will rename or change the scope of well defined testing types because convenience or lack of knowledge. This makes difficult to share experiences, creates confusion and is no good for anyone.
