Ditch Your Bug-Tracking Tool: 3 Solid Tactics to Minimize Bug Counts
A bug-free product release is an ideal that testers, developers, and project managers strive for, but when it comes to the go/no-go decision, the balance is often struck between "good" and "good enough," leaving behind a rotting to-do pile in the bug-tracking tool that is rarely acted upon in the next release. How can testers stop adding new bugs to the ever-growing list and clean up the “bug dump”? Is it possible to speed development and deliver better software by sidestepping the bug-tracking tool? Join Jerry Penner as he shares his experiences in reducing the wasted time and effort of logging, counting, fixing, and retesting bugs, while still improving software quality. He will share three tactics that work for him: "Love Letters to Dev," "Call a Spade a Spade," and "Now, Tomorrow, or Never." You will take away a better understanding of how to discuss your findings with developers and project managers, without the waste of using a bug-tracking tool and the formal meetings to go over it.
