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.
In this article I will explore what I feel are the most important skills and attributes of a good game tester, and what type of mindset I believe a good game tester should have.
In this article I will explore what I believe is a good foundation for building high quality games, and software in general. I will cover a wide array of different topics which have in common that I believe they all contribute to this goal.
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?

Creating and maintaining large test suites is quite a significant cost. An alternative to this is switching to more exploratory testing, with more focus on high level heuristics and test missions. r n r nOne of the best online free resources I have found for learning more about this is: ...

Could not agree more. Measuring the performance of a QA team by how many bugs they find is counterproductive and drives the wrong behaviour.
