Last month my article for Testing Trapez Magazine was published. It’s about using and making drawings to better explain and reach a common understanding with other as a tester in IT projects (But the article applies to any kind of project and any kind of professional position really). Have you ever had problems describing a possible bug or problem to a developer, architect or project manager? Are you occasionally misunderstood by (or are you misunderstanding) others in your team when discussing your project’s system or other abstract concepts? You are not alone. With large and complicated systems comes the possibility of being on a completely different page when discussing with your colleagues. This article looks into how you can use symbols and drawing as a tool to help you understand and explain complicated systems. You can read the October issue of Testing Trapez here.
