37: What tests to write first
This episode starts down the path of test strategy with the first tests to write in either a legacy system or a project just getting off it's feet. We cover: My approach to testing existing systems. Put names to strategies so we can refer to them later. Explain the strategies in general terms and explain why they are useful. Discuss how these strategies are used in an example project. (The code is available on github). Strategies covered today: Dog Fooding Exploratory Testing Tracer Bullet Tests Act Like A Customer (ALAC) Tests Manual Procedures Initial automated tests at 2 levels, API and UI.
