Last week I presented a talk called “Advancing Testing Using Axioms” at the First IIR Testing Forum in Helsinki, Finland.
Test Axioms have been formulated as a context-neutral set of rules for testing systems. Because they represent the critical thinking processes required to test any system, there are clear opportunities to advance the practice of testing using them.
The talk introduces “The First Equation of Testing” and discusses opportunities to use the Axioms to support test strategy development, test assessment and improvement and suggests that a tester skills framework could be an interesting by-product of the Axioms. Finally, “The Quantum Theory of Testing” is introduced.
