BWT Session No. 5: Google Calendar

I’m very happy to have participated in five consecutive BWT Sessions.
Thanks to all the members for their active participation.

The 5th BWT Session was on 30th August 2009 from 9.30pm to 11.30pm IST.

After a hectic day of writing my MS exams, it was time for the BWT Session.

I logged in at 8.30pm IST to find Amit and Anup online.
Slowly as the clock ticked 9.15pm IST, members started joining.

Finally at 9.30pm IST, we were a group of seven testers ready to prove a point.

Every product has bugs even if it’s a Google Product

Application to Test: Google Calendar
Testing Session: 9.30pm to 10.30pm IST
Discussion Session: 10.30pm to 11.30pm IST.

From the learning perspective, it was challenging for me even though I could find bugs in the product.

After the testing session, discussions were good, heated and interesting.
Members discussed their plan of attack, their learning experience, feel of the product. Rated the product and finally submitted their reports.

Some of the questions out of the discussion:
1. Why do some people assume that if it’s a Google product, it should not have bugs?
2. Should a product encourage easy learning? Is that an issue if it doesn’t?
3. Should products be compared during testing? To what extent that comparison must be done?

Expecting all the questions here???

No way, I’m going to list out all the questions, answers, comments, opinions here.

Hope to see you in the next weekend testing session. :)
