I’ve been wanting to try Weekend Testing for ages, but I’m usually swamped on the weekends. The European chapter that does Weeknight Testing (@WNTesting on Twitter; hashtag #WNTesting) works great for me because the time ends up being during my lunchtime. I tried it for the first time today.
Our mission was to do functional testing on TinyURL. The plan was to test for an hour, then debrief & discuss. I paired with Darren McMillan and we started working on a mind map in MindMeister. At the same time, I was trying things and noting it down in TextWrangler. We tried happy path tests, negative tests, boundary tests, crazy urls, trying in different browsers. I tried out features such as custom URLs and preview, both of which were not as intuitive as I hoped but this was meant to be functional testing. Darren had ideas I didn’t think of, such as URLs with accents on the letters.
Here is a scaled-down picture of our mind map, you can click on the link higher up to get the full version.
