James-Lyndsay 200Join James Lyndsay to discuss PapaParse and the strategies used to test this open source software.

Find out how James approached his testing of PapaParse and what approach other testers took.


James will discuss all the testing problems from the past month including:

  • Assessing  the purpose of the system. What ways might you use it – and what families of failure would upset you? Assess the infrastructure of the system – what does it build on, and how might those elements led to trouble?
  • Getting the tests (aka checks) running. What might be missing? What can you build on to discover more about the system? Compare the tests with the history of bugs – what story do you see?
  • Explore ways of generating data to explore the behaviour of the system. What patterns of data would you use? How might you build them?
  • Look for bugs. Measure the system performance. Discover unexpected dependencies. See if you can find an input that it can’t deal with. Help the builders expand their understanding of the system they’ve built.

James Lyndsay

James has been testing since 1986, and has worked independently since setting up Workroom Productions in 1994. As a consultant, he’s worked in a variety of businesses and project styles; from retail to telecommunications, from rapidly-evolving internet start-ups to more traditional large-scale enterprise. He’s worked to technical requirements for companies that make and sell software, to commercial requirements for companies that buy and use software, and to unexpected requirements everywhere. He’s been in and out of agile (and Agile) teams since 2002. James was an internal irritant to the ISEB exam process for five years, is a regular speaker and occasional teacher, runs LEWT (the London Exploratory Workshop in Testing) and has won prizes for his papers. He was awarded the EuroSTAR Software Testing Excellence Award in 2015 for his contribution to testing in Europe.
