Jane Kelly
Jane is part of our team based in Norwich and first started working in testing in 2002 with Aviva after working for a year as a Business Release Manager. It was here that Jane earned a Prince 2 Practitioner certification and gained formal software testing qualifications to Intermediate Level. Jane also worked as a Lead Test Analyst at Williams Lea, amongst other companies, before moving to nFocus in 2015 to take up a testing engineer role. Over her time in testing, Jane has picked up vast amounts of experience in many different aspects of the Delivery Life Cycle including Systems Testing, Integration Testing and User Acceptance Testing, amongst other things. Specialising in Integration Testing, usually web based interfaces with financial back office systems, print, MI, email and mobile/device testing, Jane is always willing to go that extra mile to make sure the job is done well. Jane was also a finalist for Tester of the Year at the 2016 DevelopHer Awards. Something all of us here at nFocus are immensely proud of her for. Outside of work Jane enjoys fitness related activities such as running races, cycling, swimming and personal development. Jane also hugely enjoys scuba diving and is hoping to work towards a scuba diving qualification. As if all this wasn't enough Jane is also aiming to learn to do water colour painting.

Types of Software Testing - a Glossary

It's amusing that software testing is a conversation starter or stopper at a party when you exchange details on what you do for a living during first greetings, depending upon whether you meet a fellow ‘techie’ or not! Software testing doesn't have to be daunting; it can be fun and interesting!

Black Box Testing Techniques

Posted by Jane Kelly on 15/12/2020

Today we welcome back Jane Kelly with a new blog on Black Box testing.

Welcome to the world of Black Box testing! It remains one of my firm favourites, because it’s a method of software testing that looks at the functions of an application. It doesn’t delve into the murky and technical depths of the internal structure, nor does it dive into detailed workings within the design or code.

Sorry, did you say puppies?! An Alternative Intro to Testing

Posted by Jane Kelly on 11/11/2020

Today we welcome back nFocus’ Jane Kelly with a blog on software testing and puppies!

Rather an odd combination isn’t it? The idea came about as my young daughter asked me what a blog was, and then what I was writing about. She suggested that someone should write a blog about testing and puppies, as she has been puppy crazy since a toddler.

Mobile Testing

Posted by Jane Kelly on 13/10/2020

 

Today, I’d like to blog about mobile testing. Like many of you out there, I am a frequent mobile user and I would feel considerably inconvenienced were I to be without it for even just a few hours!

 

The market is flooded with mobile hand-held devices and we rely so heavily on them for so many reasons: communication, diary bookings, notes, reminders, security and protection, emergencies, socialising, learning, entertainment, sleep, relaxation and so on.

Testing Room 101

Posted by Jane Kelly on 7/10/2020

Today’s blog is about pet 'computer experience' hates, ’Better out than in!’ so they say. Let's refer to it as my ‘Testing Room 101’ target list. 

The reality is, these are experienced by people across the board and not just software testers, of course! Perhaps the line of work of a software tester makes them more noticeable or perhaps they subconsciously look for them. There’s nothing like a good rant to get things off your chest when things are annoying, so here goes! How many of these are on your pet hate list?

Quality Assurance - The Role of a QA Tester

Posted by Jane Kelly on 11/09/2020

Quality Assurance - The Role of a QA Tester

The role of a QA Tester is to review and analyse new or changed software applications, products, mobile devices etc. and to look for defects or issues so that these can be resolved before a software change delivery is released for operational use.

Quality Assurance is commonly performed within a software delivery life cycle but can also be part of process mapping and similar periodic improvement and efficiency reviews or occasionally as a one-off initiative.

Tracking, Tracing, Testing!

Posted by Jane Kelly on 29/07/2020

Today we welcome back Jane Kelly who dives into the fascinating world of Track & Trace.

Track & Trace has been heavily reported on in the news and it has made me think about some of the synergies with Software Testing. Tracking can be thought of in terms of the emerging path of what is being analysed, where its current state is, and where it is likely to end up. Like testing, tracking requires many different measures to provide value.

All I Want for Christmas is a Decent Set of Requirements...

Posted by Jane Kelly on 18/12/2019

That’s not technically true… I’d love to spend time with family, eat chocolates and open a small selection of functional, relevant and meaningful gifts along with a stack of Christmas Pudding and brandy butter and maybe user acceptance test a glass or two of Baileys! 

However, as we hurtle along towards the festive season at an astonishing rate, I’d like to blog about requirements in software testing as they are so crucial to getting a good outcome, but so often hard to obtain.
