Today my Testing Planet article on Testing Big Data in an Agile environment went online on the Ministry of Testing site. This is a timely post as I am in the process of preparing for a couple of talks on the subject of testing big data in the coming months.
- I'll be running a session at the July UKTMF Quarterly Forum on 31st July discussing the practicalities of testing big data and the challenges that testers face.
- In october I'm also presenting at Agile Testing Days a talk entitle Big Data Small Sprint on the challenges that we face trying to test a Big Data Product in short agile iterations
I'll try to post some more on the practicalities of testing a big data product as it is a hot topic in software at the moment. I've previously hosted a skype chat on the subject for testers working in big data environments to share their problems and would be happy to consider something similar again - please comment if you are interested. If you are along at either of the events above please come and say hello - especially if you are facing a big data challenge yourself. For now please take a look at the article, I'd be pleased to receive any feedback that you have on it.
