Book Description

12 Sep 2011 1439861552 978-1439861554

Plenty of software testing books tell you how to test well; this one tells you how to do it while decreasing your testing budget. A series of essays written by some of the leading minds in software testing, How to Reduce the Cost of Software Testing provides tips, tactics, and techniques to help readers accelerate the testing process, improve the performance of the test teams, and lower costs.

The distinguished team of contributors—that includes corporate test leaders, best paper authors, and keynote speakers from leading software testing conferences—supply concrete suggestions on how to find cost savings without sacrificing outcome. Detailing strategies that testers can immediately put to use to reduce costs, the book explains how to make testing nimble, how to remove bottlenecks in the testing process, and how to locate and track defects efficiently and effectively.

Written in language accessible to non-technical executives, as well as those doing the testing, the book considers the latest advances in test automation, ideology, and technology. Rather than present the perspective of one or two experts in software testing, it supplies the wide-ranging perspectives of a team of experts to help ensure your team can deliver a completed test cycle in less time, with more confidence, and reduced costs.

As one of the book's authors (I wrote the chapter called "Trading Money for Time"), I had the pleasure of watching this book come together over several months and reviewing the chapters and having mine reviewed as well. I can honestly state that this book is unique in the software testing world. It is a book dedicated to reducing the costs associated with software testing, written from the perspectives of those who actually spend their time in the trenches doing the testing. Ranging from identifying the costs and their spheres, what we should do, and how we should do it, there are chapters that covers all areas of the business. This book is relevant to financial officers, executives, development managers, developers, test managers, and yes, even testers :).

Again, I have a very biased opinion here, so I will not mind if you take this review with a grain of salt. I will say that this book fills a very important place in your software development, software testing, business and finance library. We found it to be a labor of love to write this book. We hope you will read it in the same spirit in which it was written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic read! 22 Aug 2013
By Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I clumsily began software testing after two previous successful careers, as a math teacher and a tax analyst. This book shored up some of my best testing practices and that of my colleagues. It should be required reading for anyone in a software development life-cycle.
