Improving your software testing with better test case development

solutions_qualityassurance.jpgTest case development occurs in many different settings.  In fact, some of my favorite times to analyze a test case is while sharing a cup of coffee with a co-worker. We sit across from each other at a table and hash out the specifics of the test case on a pad of paper. 

 

There are other times where a more formal stance needs to be taken—it all just depends on the scenario. The most important thing is that test cases are honestly discussed and analyzed. Without guidance, your case may simply fall flat and fail to perform.
