Tool selection and implementation
TestingExperience, September 2013
In preparing for my column, I began writing about changes to the tool landscape as a result of agile. Many new (freeware) tech-oriented tools now exist to support component/unit testing, measure code coverage, and support continuous integration. Further, test automation has been pushed to the forefront of our attention due to the need for regression testing. Finally, new project management tools have become available, providing functionalities such cards, task boards, and burn-down charts. This column was intended to be a sort of follow-up to a previous Testing Experience column in which I discussed so-called “forgotten tools”.
