This site is home to the Periodic Table of Testing

Quick links to blog posts below: 

The Big Test Theory is the place that I (Adrian ‘Ady’ Stokes) put all my thoughts and ideas connected to the Periodic Table of Testing and a few other bits. Here you will find the latest version of the table and the elements scoping categories. 

I hope you enjoy it and please pop along to the blog.  Feel free to ask questions and challenge my thoughts.

All opinions are my own unless credited.  Feel free to use the table in any way you find useful, but I'd appreciate you sharing with me what you do with it and crediting me please, thank you.

I thought this is it, how can things possibly get any better than this. I am home. Well, let me tell you how it got better – the one and only Ady Stokes is how. His talk was on the Periodic Table of Testing, an exhaustive list of every type of testing you could think of, as well as important definitions and considerations to make when testing. I would highly recommend going to his website The Big Test Theory to have a look around.
