An MS Course Presentation – How Google Tests Software


This blog post was written @ May 31, 2011 @ 12:15 on my previous blog @


Hi all;

It’s been a few days since I last wrote to the blog. Therefore, in order not to leave an interval, I’ll post something related to my graduate Education.

For those who haven’t taken a look at my about me section, I’m currently enrolled to MS Program in Software Engineering @ Bogazici University. One of the must courses I have to take is SWE 550 Software Quality Assurance and Reliability. Within the limits of this course, every attendant student of should prepare a Presentation on one of the topics covered in the course:

  • “SW Testing”,
  • “SW Quality Assurance”,
  • “SW Fault Tolerance” and
  • “SW Reliability Modelling & Prediction”

I wanted to take an enjoyable topic so I’ve selected “How Google Tests The Software” as an on-demand presentation. Thanks to Mr. Tosun, he accepted my choice on the topics.
There is a dedicated blog mostly written by James Whittaker, Director of Test Engineering at Google:

And he has written (actually still writing :) ) a series called “How Google Tests Software” . At the time I’ve prepared the presentation, the series were up to 6 parts, but as of 26th of May, Whittaker has written “How Google Tests Software – Part Seven”. He seems to proceed further more..

My presentation was just a summary of the organizational parts in Google’s way of Testing Software and the results of this organizational behaviour on software quality. I didn’t cover all of the series, as it was hard to present the whole concept.

I hope you like it! Any comments are welcomed.

Have a nice day ;)



“..Being an unsuccessful blogger regarding my previous experiences, I’ve been seeking to start blogging for some time. Thanks to Gökmen for the ping at the start of the week, I’ve managed to come this far :) ..”

This was my first post in my blog under Pardus domain.. I don’t remember how many times I’ve re-started blogging.. But that blog under Pardus domain was the first I believed I’d keep on blogging. My plan was buying and keep on blogging over there. However, I didn’t know how to handle this domain things, hosting services etc.. so I kept on postponing it.

Now, I’m @ my new address: I’ll copy some of my posts from my previous blog in Pardus domain, you can see the notification on them “this blog post was published in my previous blog @ that time..”

Anyway, Here I am, ready to blog about life, programming, free software, trekking and mountaineering, my travels, and so on.. I plan to blog in both Turkish and English, but time will decide this.
