Reading Recommendations # 14

The 14th issue of my software testing reading recommendations contains five blog posts and one podcast. There are very interesting posts dealing with the topics that more end-to-end tests are not efficient, an introduction to security testing with Kali Linux and how to improve testing by Gojko Adzic.

There is a great post from Joel Montvelisky about peripheral vision and peripheral testing, a post from Johanna Rothman is dealing with no estimates and as usual the podcast from Stephen & Dan is always worth listen to. This time the topic is “The Right Thing vs. The Thing Right”.

My favorite posts of this issue is the one from Google about “Just Say No to More End-to-End Tests” and the post about peripheral vision and peripheral testing.

Enjoy reading the posts.

If you’re using Scrum, you estimate what you can do in an iteration so you can meet your “commitment.” But estimation is a problem for many agile projects. The larger the effort, the more difficult it is to estimate. You can’t depend on ideal days. Do your estimates provide value? To whom?
