We will read http://testingeducation.org/BBST/testdesign/Buwalda_soap_opera_testing.pdf  for the first 30 mins and prepare test scenarios based on soap opera approach for the next 30 mins for www.twitter.com

Session Highlights:

The first few reactions to the mission was that the 30 minutes time duration is very less. Few questions were asked about how should one proceed. Following tips were provided:

  • Find important points
  • Understand the Key Theme
  • Relate it to www.twitter.com
  • Write scenarios based on the learning

Raghu asked about Scenario testing. Two documents about Scenario testing are here and here. There was a question if we should create tests as one group or try individually? We decided to create on our own and then discuss in the discussion session.

Koh and Raghu paired up. In the discussion session, we discussed about the tests we had created. They can be found here:
