  • Applying Stoicism in Testing

    Agility stands for being aware of your environment. There is a specific set of values for a tester that you should stick to; they set limits to what you can deliver as a tester, and within those limits, you can keep your agility. But your values can cause a “collision” with agile people around you, because they don’t have to be perfectly in line with how people apply the agile principles.

  • Using a DDD Approach for Validating Business Rules

    If the goal is to create software applications that emulate the behavior of domain experts, then the challenge is in capturing and implementing the business rules. This is more a factor of good knowledge management than it is raw coding ability. Following techniques from Domain-Driven Design can provide a structure for effectively validating and implementing business rules in a system.

  • Functional UI - a Model-Based Approach

    Functional UI techniques rely on the functional relation between events processed by the user interface and the actions performed by the interface. If the user interface has discrete modes in which its behavior can be expressed simply, a modelization with state machines is an advantageous functional UI technique. This article explains the technique, its benefits and how it is used in the industry.

  • Q&A on the Book Righting Software

    The book Righting Software by Juval Löwy provides a structured way to design a software system and the project to build it. Löwy proposes to use volatility-based decomposition to encapsulate changes inside the system’s building blocks, and explains how to design the project in order to provide decision makers with several viable options trading schedule, cost, and risk.
