EWT34 – Rapid Anagrams

Date: 4th September 2010
Time: 15:30 – 17:30 UTC

Product: Rapid Reporter 0.9.9.0

Mission
Evaluate Rapid Reporter for session-based testing. Test the anagram generator, and take your notes using Rapid Reporter. The primary mission is to evaluate Rapid Reporter, but try to find out how anagrams are generated while taking a look into your session notes.

Testers: Vijay Kaikundri, Eusebiu Blindu, Markus Gärtner

Markus Gärtner facilitated the discussion afterwards.

Vijay Kaikundri started the discussion. He explained, that he used RapidReporter while exploring the anagram generator. While he found some bugs, he found the command-line support useful, too. Vijay explained that he had not used a similar tool before, so he couldn’t compare it to another one.

Eusebiu Blindu explained that he didn’t use the command line, but the GUI instead. He found it easy to take notes. Sebi said that he also took a screenshot, but didn’t know where it went.

The group discussed whether such a notes taking tool would be useful, and whether or not Rapid Reporter might be used. On of the bigger issues was cross-platform support. On the advantage side there are screenshots and rich text editing abilities.
