Code Coverage and Test Coverage – Testing In The Pub Episode 54

Welcome back to another Testing In The Pub, its episode 54 – Code Coverage and Test Coverage.

How do you measure your testing effort? And how do you report on it? Is it as valuable as it could be, and adjusted for the audience who will read it? Listen to Dan and Steve chat about all things code and test coverage related and discuss how they’ve reported on quality and testing efforts in the past.

As always, we’d love to hear about your experiences and how you do things. So drop us a line at testing@testinginthepub.co.uk, leave a comment on the website or contact us on Twitter or Instagram (@testinginthepub).

Cultures – Testing In The Pub Episode 53

Welcome to Episode 53 – Cultures, another podcast from Testing In The Pub.

In this episode we have a chat about cultures. Are cultures forward or backward looking? Can you build a culture or does a culture just evolve? Who is responsible for a culture? What’s this “Culture of Quality” thing that’s so trendy at the moment actually all about?

As always, if you’ve got ideas, things you want to share, suggestions for future episodes or feedback on this one then we’d love to hear from you. Either leave a comment or tweet us @testinginthpub.

Episode 52 – Communities

Welcome back to another Testing In the Pub, Episode 52 – Communities.

In this episode we talk about communities. Inclusive vs exclusive,  internal vs external and how the communities have helped us. Is the  industry is in trouble because external communities don’t mix? And what are we doing to try and solve that? We then finish up talking about how people can get involved in the community.

Episode 49 – Leadership vs Management

Welcome to this episode of Testing In the Pub, it’s Episode 49 – Leadership vs Management.

Hopefully this episode starts to answer these questions. There’s more to come so listen to future episodes where we’ll delve into all of this in more detail.
