From Tester to Tester: Advice to the Visual Basic Automator

  • Mary Romero Sweeney


You have made it through eleven chapters on Visual Basic and testing. If you started at Chapter 1, you have covered the basics of how to write a Visual Basic program all the way to using it for testing COM objects, databases, and even a bit of the Web. Along the way, you also learned a little about what it is like to be a software developer because you encountered the same sort of problems they do—running into frustrating bugs and encountering all kinds of new technology that you need to get familiar with fast. In many ways, both programming and testing continually run into that age-old problem, what comes first, the chicken or the egg? In our case, it’s which technologies do we learn first, COM, ODBC, or the new DotNet? It seems that we need to know about all of them to fully comprehend the systems we test. You should have enough to get you started, though, and plenty of references to continue your learning. So, now you are ready to face the world of automated testing. Or are you? If you have not read through Appendix D, please take the time to do so. There are many pitfalls and problems you may encounter unless you take the time to learn from the experts.
