Liz Bancroft-Turner, the Project Manager at Charles Hoskinson’s science and engineering firm InputOutput presented the latest updates in Cardano’s Shelley Project on Tuesday. Here, she gave a recap of the developments made in the project, explained the road ahead and talked about test and quality plan methodology used to keep the progress in check.
She began by speaking about the goal of the Shelley Project, which is to become fully decentralized and autonomous. Turner stated that there are three main work streams that will help the team deliver decentralization. These streams are incentives, delegation and networking. The IOHK official added:
“For incentives, this is about encouraging stakeholders to follow the protocol andassure that the system runs smoothly for delegation this is about allowing users to hand over their right to sign blocks to a third party and for networking it’s about enabling the infrastructure to support decentralization.”
In the video update, she also included a test and quality plan where she mentioned three areas under the subject, namely, test strategy, test execution strategy and test management.
The test strategy will determine the rules on which the testing is based on and will also include the end and start dates of the project testing. Other factors that fall under this are entry/exit criteria, the creation of the test cases, scheduling, data strategy and more.
Test execution strategy will involve details such as the description of how the testing will be performed, the implementation to fix issues and more. Lastly, Turner’s presentation stated that the test management sector will carry the plan of handling the logistics of the testing and suchlike.
She concluded the update by explaining the role of testing and quality plan. Here, she said that the plan covers the testing methodology of the project, which further assists the team in meeting its ultimate objective.
