Johan Hoberg's Blog
A test specialist with a great passion for quality, verification, validation and test.
I have written many presentations and texts about my job which can be found on slideshare.
I am interested in every aspect of software testing, including education, innovation, management, process, planning, methods, automation, execution and everything else connected to test.
This article sums up why I think Agile methodologies are a key component to attain high quality in complex product development, such as when producing games.
In this article I will explore the acronym QA, and why I think we should do away with it for good.
In this article I will explore why I think that deadlines should never be communicated to the development teams, and why all deadlines are basically meaningless anyway.
Do we really need game testers when we move to a more Agile way of developing games? If the development teams own the quality of their product and do their own testing, is there really a place for dedicated game testers?
In this article I will discuss what types of testing I think should be done by a Scrum Team, and what types could be done by someone outside of the team.
I have always been interested in Live User Test since I first heard about it, but I have never had the opportunity to try it out until now. This article summarises my initial experience with crowd testing / live user test for finding and reproducing bugs.
