Whittaker Ê 9 Summary Kthrough best practices you can use even if you're not uite Google's sizeyet Using these techniues you can transform testing from a bottleneck into an accelerator and make your whole organization producti. In my day to day job as a software engineer I constantly encounter new and interesting problems in the realm of testing software So when I found How Google Tests Software I was very excited to find out what techniues Google employs to tackle some of these thornier problems at scaleThe opening chapters of the book do a really great job of describing the ethos of testing at Google and very clearly defining what their goals are and how each of their roles and tools will contribute to that overall goal Reading through these chapters I found myself chomping at the bit to find the nuggets of wisdom that I could apply in my own workHowever past the opening chapters for me the book really started to wane in terms of technical details and I found myself working harder and harder to find the lessons that I could take away While I appreciated the author s descriptions of the tools that Google uses internally the overviews weren t enough for me to determine exactly what about the tools solved their testing problems and it wasn t enough to really understand how to build a similar infrastructure at my companyThe latter half of the book focused heavily on interview transcripts with testing leaders at Google While I did appreciate their war stories and takeaways I felt the interviews didn t have uite enough useful information to justify the amount of space that they took up in the book Even the last chapter felt like of an anti climax rather than a solid wrap up of the book as a wholeOverall I thought the book had a lot of potential but the pacing issues with the size of each chapter and the dearth of useful technical details really took a lot of the wind out of its sails
