This book is written because I realized the money, time, energy and resources that the University of Malaya is spending in educating their library users, particularly postgraduate students, in order to meet the requirements of Master and Ph.D. studies. Interestingly, the information skills sessions are perceived to be useful and effective among those who attended the training programme. The author provides suggestions and recommendations so as to improve the information literacy skills to be more useful as well as effective.

Working with India

Globalization requires effective international and cross-cultural collaboration. When project teams from Western cultures first come into contact with colleagues from the Indian IT and BPO industry, prejudices against the new and unknown are typically amplified. This book is a start on the journey of cultural appreciation for managers, project leaders, and offshore coordinators working together with Indians. It is also a resource for business managers and company strategists seeking to understand the softer aspects behind the headlines that the Indian IT and BPO industry so frequently creates. Being both academically well researched and an account of the author´s many years of personal experience in India, the book opens with a description of cultural dimensions that help to break down culturally driven matters. It provides background information about India as a country and a social system. Examining the development and current status of India´s IT and BPO industry, it moves on to describe the dynamics of its workforce. The book then provides practical information on how to communicate, negotiate, and interact with Indian colleagues, and intelligently utilize expatriates. It closes by formulating recommendations for a more effective collaboration.

xUnit Test Patterns
51,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Automated testing is a cornerstone of agile development. An effective testing strategy will deliver new functionality more aggressively, accelerate user feedback, and improve quality. However, for many developers, creating effective automated tests is a unique and unfamiliar challenge. xUnit Test Patterns is the definitive guide to writing automated tests using xUnit, the most popular unit testing framework in use today. Agile coach and test automation expert Gerard Meszaros describes 68 proven patterns for making tests easier to write, understand, and maintain. He then shows you how to make them more robust and repeatable--and far more cost-effective. Loaded with information, this book feels like three books in one. The first part is a detailed tutorial on test automation that covers everything from test strategy to in-depth test coding. The second part, a catalog of 18 frequently encountered test smells, provides trouble-shooting guidelines to help you determine the root cause of problems and the most applicable patterns. The third part contains detailed descriptions of each pattern, including refactoring instructions illustrated by extensive code samples in multiple programming languages. Topics covered include Writing better tests--and writing them faster The four phases of automated tests: fixture setup, exercising the system under test, result verification, and fixture teardown Improving test coverage by isolating software from its environment using Test Stubs and Mock Objects Designing software for greater testability Using test smells (including code smells, behavior smells, and project smells) to spot problems and know when and how to eliminate them Refactoring tests for greater simplicity, robustness, and execution speed This book will benefit developers, managers, and testers working with any agile or conventional development process, whether doing test-driven development or writing the tests last. While the patterns and smells are especially applicable to all members of the xUnit family, they also apply to next-generation behavior-driven development frameworks such as RSpec and JBehave and to other kinds of test automation tools, including recorded test tools and data-driven test tools such as Fit and FitNesse. Visual Summary of the Pattern Language Foreword Preface Acknowledgments Introduction Refactoring a Test PART I: The Narratives Chapter 1 A Brief Tour Chapter 2 Test Smells Chapter 3 Goals of Test Automation Chapter 4 Philosophy of Test Automation Chapter 5 Principles of Test Automation Chapter 6 Test Automation Strategy Chapter 7 xUnit Basics Chapter 8 Transient Fixture Management Chapter 9 Persistent Fixture Management Chapter 10 Result Verification Chapter 11 Using Test Doubles Chapter 12 Organizing Our Tests Chapter 13 Testing with Databases Chapter 14 A Roadmap to Effective Test Automation PART II: The Test Smells Chapter 15 Code Smells Chapter 16 Behavior Smells Chapter 17 Project Smells PART III: The Patterns Chapter 18 Test Strategy Patterns Chapter 19 xUnit Basics Patterns Chapter 20 Fixture Setup Patterns Chapter 21 Result Verification Patterns Chapter 22 Fixture Teardown Patterns Chapter 23 Test Double Patterns Chapter 24 Test Organization Patterns Chapter 25 Database Patterns Chapter 26 Design-for-Testability Patterns Chapter 27 Value Patterns PART IV: Appendixes Appendix A Test Refactorings Appendix B xUnit Terminology Appendix C xUnit Family Members Appendix D Tools Appendix E Goals and Principles Appendix F Smells, Aliases, and Causes Appendix G Patterns, Aliases, and Variations Glossary References Inde

ggf. zzgl. Versand

In Exploratory Software Testing , leading software testing expert James A. Whittaker reveals the real causes of today´s most serious, well-hidden software bugs - and introduces powerful new ´´exploratory´´ techniques for uncovering them. Drawing on nearly two decades of experience working at the cutting edge of testing with Google, Microsoft, IBM, and Florida Tech, Whittaker introduces powerful new processes for manual testing that are repeatable, prescriptive, teachable, and effective. Whittaker identifies various types of exploratory testing, then shows when to use each, how to use them all successfully, and how to integrate them with existing automated testing methods. Concise, entertaining, and actionable, this book guides software professionals on the tactical and strategic decisions that can make or break their testing processes. Whittaker shows how to make manual testing more effective and less boring; offers specific guidance on choosing test cases; and shows how to reflect feedback from the development process. Above all, Exploratory Software Testing shows how to uncover the hidden ´´show-stopper´´ bugs that so often evade conventional testing. Product Description How to Find and Fix the Killer Software Bugs that Evade Conventional Testing In Exploratory Software Testing , renowned software testing expert James Whittaker reveals the real causes of today´s most serious, well-hidden software bugs--and introduces powerful new ´´exploratory´´ techniques for finding and correcting them. Drawing on nearly two decades of experience working at the cutting edge of testing with Google, Microsoft, and other top software organizations, Whittaker introduces innovative new processes for manual testing that are repeatable, prescriptive, teachable, and extremely effective. Whittaker defines both in-the-small techniques for individual testers and in-the-large techniques to supercharge test teams. He also introduces a hybrid strategy for injecting exploratory concepts into traditional scripted testing. You´ll learn when to use each, and how to use them all successfully. Concise, entertaining, and actionable, this book introduces robust techniques that have been used extensively by real testers on shipping software, illuminating their actual experiences with these techniques, and the results they´ve achieved. Writing for testers, QA specialists, developers, program managers, and architects alike, Whittaker answers crucial questions such as: . Why do some bugs remain invisible to automated testing--and how can I uncover them? . What techniques will help me consistently discover and eliminate ´´show stopper´´ bugs? . How do I make manual testing more effective--and less boring and unpleasant? . What´s the most effective high-level test strategy for each project? . Which inputs should I test when I can´t test them all? . Which test cases will provide the best feature coverage? . How can I get better results by combining exploratory testing with traditional script or scenario-based testing? . How do I reflect feedback from the development process, such as code changes?
