Free ACM webinar on combinatorial testing

Please join me for the next free ACM SIGSOFT webinar, Combinatorial Testing: Progress in Automating Test Design. Combinatorial testing is a general method to verify interactions among test configurations and inputs. I will be presenting an overview on September 6, at 12 to 1 PM EDT. Details and registration are at

Questions? Please ask.

Reminder: the combinatorial testing webinar is this Thursday, September 6. It’s free, but the ACM requires attendees to register.

By the way, I hope the subtitle about test design automation doesn’t put off anyone. I am very aware of the misunderstandings associated with test automation, and testers’ roles generally. Effective combinatorial testing requires knowledge of the SUT and testing experience of course. Here, the automated part is searching through possible test cases, doing a combinatorial analysis to find a small number of cases with the best coverage. Whether their execution should be automated is your call.

I hope you can attend.

If you missed the free webinar on combinatorial testing, it’s available on-demand. It’s introductory for testers new to the technique. It also has some new tricks for old hands. Duration is about 45 minutes plus Q&A. It’s the September 6 talk at this link:
