Testers’ ideas flow of the week: metrics for QA, definitions of done and freedom

What is going on in testing communities?

Every week, we are going to collect vigorous discussions from different software testing communities. Believe us or not, the full range of emotions is here: joy, fear, anger, hesitation and persuasion, condemnation and shame, endorsement and support, but the most important – a great deal of curiosity!

From now on, you don’t need to subscribe to dozens of groups and channels – everything the most important will be on our blog. Follow the Software Testing Talks Facebook group and r/softwaretestingtalks Reddit community to get our weekly discussions lists directly to your feed.

 

Here are the most active discussions of the last week:

💬 That all could be weird as hell, but I’ve beed reading that “Permutations city” by Greg Eagan. And it strikes me very peculiarly that in theory all this Blockchain ( Ethereum especially ) could be just like a fabric to build a calculation for sort of another plane of reality. And I am not high, just in case. >> check the discussion in a Tech Masters Slack community.

💬 Has anyone implemented a test management tool for a manual testing team that wasn’t using one previously? Any tips on implementation/metrics that are generally useful once the team starts using the tool? Or just general thoughts on documenting manual test cases? >> check the discussion in a Modern Testing Slack community.
