Session: The Whole-Team Approach, Illustrated: Choosing a New GUI Test Tool

Thursday 18.00 - 18.50
Room: Keyboard Cat

When a cross-functional team commits to delivering a software product with the highest possible quality, that commitment needs to be meaningful. Lisa Crispin's team recently discovered ways to enhance the usability of their web app, and significantly reduce user mistakes, but their GUI test tool doesn't accommodate the new technology. Come hear how Lisa's team has pulled together - though it was difficult - and conducted several experiments to look for a good solution. It's not the path of least resistance, but it's a path to success that any team can follow.
