Human Software Testing

Canva iOS developer Nic Wittison spoke at /dev/world/2015 in Melbourne on August 31, 2015.

When designing automated tests to minimise regressions in your software, it’s often hard to test exactly what a human would do to achieve a task and exactly how they would do it. While Canva has many automated tests, we also test our software manually each release to catch bugs and regressions at a time when they are cheaper to fix. This talk details some of the processes we follow to test our iOS app, and gives a few tips on how to get the most out of your testing efforts.
