Got a group together to do some exploratory testing around authentication in a web app.
So I've been doing a lot of exercises and reading around leadership - not to become a team lead or change roles or whatever, but because I want to be a good advisor, mentor and advocate for quality in my company. I started with The Leadership Journey by Jim Holmes, mainly because he offered TestBash-goers… Continue reading Building a team path for quality
They put me in charge of a team retro, the fools. I didn't realise until recently that the remote-first way of working can be pretty unusual even in the dev industry - I've never done an in-person stand-up, kick off or retrospective, and so it's not at all unusual in my mind to do these… Continue reading Shaking up remote retros
So I did a talk at the South West Test meetup in Bristol last week (at the time of writing first draft, probably last year by the time I finish...) and someone asked afterwards if I could make it into a blog post. I was a bit like yeah sure, but also a bit like… Continue reading A B C, V R T
This post is about how I implemented a simple Visual Regression Test on my test playground, which interacts with elements inside an iFrame. This is something that can be a challenge for testing, since many of the most popular tools for automated testing like Gemini and Cypress don't seem to support this. I'm adding to… Continue reading Writing VRTs that interact with elements inside an iFrame
I've been procrastinating on a blog post I would like to write about some VRTs I made using Puppeteer with Jest, as it ended up being a long hit-and-miss process and I'm not sure which parts I would like to write on. I might even make a few posts on the subject, but I do… Continue reading On making a new learning path
In my last post, I wrote about the first Visual Regression Test I made for the test site. I have now written a couple more, which had a few differences and additions that I think make more sense of the way Gemini tests can be written. Not much more, mind. I've also uploaded the project… Continue reading Additions to the VRT collection
When I first started at my current workplace, I was told one of my responsibilities would be to move forward with automating our regression testing with VRTs. I had no idea what they were, or how they were implemented. Even after looking at documentation about them, I still felt lost. Whenever people talked about them,… Continue reading My first Visual Regression Test (VRT)
