July 30th – Tips for Scaling Testing to Meet Your Budget Needs

How to prioritise your testing
- Use historical cases to identify which areas of the application are used or fail the most
- Define each application function and group together the most common
- Determine the priorities of these functions overall and by group
- Work through all workflows and functions from front end to back
Prioritisation not only allows for wider test coverage within the allotted time, but it also leads to greater efficiency during execution – read the full article here.

- Defects cluster together
- Beware of the pesticide paradox
- Testing is context dependent
- Absence-of-errors is a fallacy
