Note that this post is part of a series where I am ‘live blogging’ my way through the ministry of testing’s 30 days of Agile Testing challenge.
Today’s challenge asks me to find a visual way of representing my tests. There are many, many different ways to do this and I often use drawings of some sort to help me figure out things I don’t understand. Here is one I did when trying to understand the different types of integration tests we had and what they did and covered. This is obviously a massive over-simplification of our software but it was helpful for figuring out what we were actually able to check with the different types of tests and also for helping to figure out where we might be able to change our testing approaches. By visualizing what was going on, I was able to understand what kind of changes could make sense in our system.
