As a developer, my primary focus is build these and integrate these to deliver features which combine to form requirements and later flows. So […]

And that is what good testing should be – sensitise you, so that you can prevent. For example, if you knew the PDTs at L1 […]

How to test optimally

The highest optimisation of testing is “to not do it all” ! i.e. don’t execute test cases. What does this mean? Prevent not detect. And this is quite possible when we clearly delineate testing at various quality levels. And PDTs at lower levels like L1-L3 are more amenable to be prevented rather than only being detected. In […]
