Recent Q&A Activity

Our team is looking to implement new metrics and I'm a fan of capturing DRE; however, I'm curious how others are calculating DRE within their organizations?  Specifically, when implementing this metric for an existing project that has already had numerous releases and has a number of existing defects in backlog, some of which will end up pushed to future releases and then probably pushed again.

I am searching some articles about sofware installation/uninstallation. Which are things what must have tested, best practices, creating test cases and so on.

Thanks for help :)

Can someone please point me in the right direction to find out more information about what the role of a QA Engineer is like within an Agile team?  Books, articles, videos etc anything to help me understand what the role is like, what is expected of the QA individual etc.  My reseach so far has made it difficult to identify which parts are QA and hich are Dev.

Have have no QA experience but I am think of applying for an internal position, which would be in an Agile team.


Many thanks for any advice, hints and tips :0)

Please help, i would like to know what a reference set is. I have seen it in most of the research papers and they mostly use it in conjunction with test cases. What is a reference set and how does it differ from a test case.
