UKITB has partnered and is collaborating with ‘FindWhatsWrong’ to help bring a brand new, practical software testing platform to the market.
UKITB has been driving software testing forward in the UK and Ireland for over 15 years. UKITB
- Operates as the ISTQB Member Board for the UK and Ireland. A major contributor of Subject Matter Experts for ISTQB Working Groups, with UKITB authored exams used globally.
- Is the the UK and Ireland TMMi (Test Maturity Model integration) chapter with a number of its members having prominent roles in that organisation
- Supports a wide range of Conferences in Development & Testing and has hosted two major ISTQB General Assembly Conferences in London and Dublin.
This latest initiative has seen Members of our Technical Advisory Group (TAG) assist in developing and piloting an innovative practical software testing platform aimed at helping individuals and organisations evaluate and develop their software testing skills.
The ‘Software Testing Simulator’ developed by FindWhatsWrong has already been introduced to support the “UK Institute For Apprenticeships and Technical Education” Software Tester Level 4 Apprenticeship scheme and now the UKITB is looking to support its wider use in the market.
The Practical Test Challenge
UKITB is kicking off with a ‘hands-on’ challenge for testers to find defects in a very simple scenario. So can you find the defects in an everyday ‘Login’ feature? There’s a prize of a bottle of champagne for whoever gets the best DDP ‘Defect Detection Percentage’ in this 1-hour challenge.
We’re restricting this to the first 100 contestants in selected timeslots. It sounds simple, but is it? You need to find the defects and avoid selecting things that aren’t. And to make it interesting, we are using a unique feature of the platform that enables the applications to behave in a myriad of different ways for the same User Stories and Acceptance Criteria – so collaborating with a fellow contestant might not help!
Book your slot and take the challenge
This is just the first ‘Challenge’. There is much more to the platform than this simple challenge – the ‘Software Testing Simulator’ can be configured to simulate real-life iterative development scenarios, evaluate test analysis and design thinking, and provide a range of metrics on the performance of anyone using it.
