Fusion Testing Presentation

Hey Everyone;

Thanks for the support on Fusion testing and thank you all who came to the presentation either in Denver or Bilbao, Spain. Unfortunately I was a little time crunched on the presentation in Spain and wasn't able to go into the details I usually do. I am working on a more in-depth presentation and possibly a book to really detail my beliefs on how to increase test execution time through utilizing a fusion to test methodologies and techniques.

I want to thank Sander, Silvia, Avner, Doron, Alvin, Hung and Mary and all of the other great speakers I met in Spain who made the trip extremely enjoyable. I felt that the QA&Test Conference was well organized and in an amazing location and I learned a great deal from the presenters about embedded software and the challenges that these groups face.

Fusion Testing is not an exact fit for this venue so all I could hope for was to provide some thought provoking ideas, if I was to do it differently I would detail how to benefit from implementing Fusion with embedded projects.

I have attached the hand-outs from my presentation for anyone to view, please leave me any comments that you might have. I am going to work on some Agile ideas I have and get some more details on metrics and implementation for Fusion.

3. Sample of a Iteration Test Plan
4. Example of a Daily Test Plan and a Test-list
5. Automation Strategy
6. What Metrics to Collect & Formula's for Collecting Them
7. Traceability Matrix Example
8. TDD Implementation Statistics
9. Implementation Timeline & Results at Mx Logic

No Keynote at QA&Test Conference this year but I still maybe doing the Presentation


Unfortunately my timing for the keynote opportunity was bad, and all the keynote spots have been taken by some truly impressive speakers and one friend and partner who I very much respect.

QA&Test and I are working together to present Fusion Testing as a presentation in the Testing Technique track. I will let you know if all gets finished in time.

I am definitely looking forward to presenting my ideas and I will be posting topic updates each week to get your feedback, hopefully people will be following me.

Unfortunately Fusion Testing Presentation was delayed


My apologies but some immigration issues last year prevented me from traveling to the QA&Test Conference. I am currently working with the conference to reschedule this presentation. I will be starting a weekly series on Fusion testing starting in June 2009 and continuing throughout the year with new thoughts, ideas and speculation on testing.

Stay tuned.

Fusion Testing Presentation at QA&Test 2008 Conference in Bilbao Spain

Hello Everyone;

I will be presenting the Fusion Testing Methodology this October at the QA&Test Conference in Bilbao Spain. This will be the first time that I have shared this methodology with the testing community after working with and refining my ideas over the past 3 years in my role as Vice President of Product Delivery at Mx Logic.

I created this blog to share the ideas I have developed and to have a location for discussion of these ideas.

I truly believe in the strength of minds and the continuous improvement that collaboration can have. I will be posting some of the ideas and topics I will be sharing in Spain through out the next few weeks to get others opinions on them and to learn how to refine my message so others can appreciate the usefulness of the Fusion Testing Methods.

The goal of Fusion testing is to combine the best practices of many of the different testing methodologies to maximize the amount of time a test department is exercising code but still supporting the needs of the business with usable reliable data points to make business decisions.
