I had a mad idea recently that I should start a merchandising section, for T-Shirts with slogans and images. And then I remembered that I tried that before and didn’t follow it up very well. But then I thought “This will be different, I’ll put slogans on them. People like slogans.”
And then THIS popped into my head.
I T.E.S.T with A.T.T.I.T.U.D.E
How cool would that be on a T-Shirt?
And then on the back the list of words that make up the acronym:
T.E.S.T ------- Tactical Exploratory Strategic Testing A.T.T.I.T.U.D.E --------------- Attack Tenacious Task Interrogate Technical Understand Debrief Experiment
Ooh yeah. Viral Marketing Millions.
And then I thought. “But perhaps people would want to use their own words!".
And then, like all people who can program, I thought “I should write an app for that”.
And so I did.
And then… yeah, the viral marketing demon that was sitting on my shoulder all the way through this exchange left me for an advertising exec talking loudly on his phone at the gym. So no marketing millions for me.
But, for you… a new testing challenge.
The “Test With” Whatifier
The “Test With Whatifier” a super catchy name.
“Oooh”, I hear you say. “Look at the fancy GUI”
And clearly at first glance it doesn’t do much.
- If I write text in the input fields and then click the only button on screen
[Clear]it just wipes out the text.
- Is that bug?
- Is that actually what it does?
So I offer you a series of ascending challenges.
- What does it do?
- What can you make it do?
- Is this thing buggy?
If you haven’t taken the course yet… Treat yourself.
If you do any work with it, then feel free to leave comments letting me know how you get on.
PS. Yes the preamble T-Shirt stuff was filled with clues
