At the end of 2011 we got a memorable contract for greenfield development of an autonomous video-monitoring and online translation system in 70 days. A project life was so short that we'd have to turn ourselves in. I’ll tell the educational story how we’ve succeeded the testing mission in the “Web elections — 2012” project:
- which testing risks we managed to predict;
- how we managed configuration, acceptance and regression testing;
- how test automation could be applied in such rapid project;
- what did we learn from risks we have had.
Junior and middle software test engineers will learn new ideas for test-design, automation and routine optimization, while for senior testers and test-managers the speech will be valuable as a successful testing story not in an overprotection of this project «requirements – test-cases – test stages – all in good time» and not in a friendly agile, but when all the process builds right now.
