Software in Use
Karen N. Johnson’s chapter from Beautiful Testing published by O’Reilly in 2008 describes how her professional experience intersected with her personal life while testing medical software. This roughly 15-page chapter can be read by beginning to advanced software testers, and even by people who don’t work with computer software. Karen describes her own experience testing medical software in a regulated software environment where a mix of scripted and exploratory testing practices were used. The chapter outlines what multiuser testing is and why testing with that perspective was so important for the product under test. Her chapter shares the experience of working in a scientific lab and the attempts to test with simulated real usage.
