StarEAST day 2: morning session

I'm in an all-day session today on how to write good test cases, led by Lee Copeland (who didn't hassle me about being an hour late, thank God). I'm short on time to write but a useful lesson from this morning's session is that if you do a diagram of business rules, a graph, you will frequently find that there are cases which are not addressed in the spec or the code (I'll demonstrate later).

I also talked to the guy who led yesterday morning's estimation talk and he recommended I cut my slide set down to about 20. It'll mean I miss stuff, but it will also mean I will not run out of time in the middle. He said to put other stuff in "bonus sections" at the end that I can use if I have extra time. I think that's a great idea!

Right, session starting now, and we're covering some kind of test analysis technique I've never heard of before and thus can't say the name of now. Will check in later around 5:30 or so.

My approach is to design a programming language which is as close as possible to the ideal representation of the job, and then write the program in that. So I actually have a compiler for a flow diagram of rules, amongst other things. This drastically reduces bug-count once the thing goes into maintenance.
