A new teams encounter with DET/TET as a framework for testing – Part 3-Running with the basics!

First of all, I want to be clear that this series of posts have nothing to do with my work at Atlassian. These posts are experiences from previous assignments with Jayway, and I am just now gathering my thoughts on it.

Be sure to read the previous posts which has some background:

Part 2-Intro workshop

Basics

The basic principles of DET (Session, People, Focus and Reporting) are pretty easy to follow, so just doing it basic style will give some value. This is of course a place for a disclaimer, since running with the basics here would be similar to scrum, easy-to-follow rules that are just not so easy to follow.

As usual, when the blog is not updated it is a sign that I have been up to many other things lately and the blog is one of the things I needed to cut down on. The reason for the downtime this spring is obvious, I have been busy packing my life in sweden into boxes for a move down-under to Sydney, Australia.
