Video Highlight Reel of Hexawise – a pairwise testing tool and combinatorial testing tool

I have just created the first video overview of the Hexawise test case generator. Please take a look and let me know your thoughts (either with an email or a comment below).

Introduction to Hexawise Pairwise Testing Tool / Combinatorial Testingn Tool

Introduction to Hexawise Pairwise Testing Tool / Combinatorial Testing Tool

I’ll refine and hopefully improve it over time, but wanted to share it at this point for feedback.  I’d welcome feedback.  Is the pace of the video too slow?  Does it have too much detail about pairwise coverage?  Does the fact that I’ve got a dull Midwestern, nasal, monotone mean I should have someone with a more animated and melodious “voice made for radio” do the voice over?

Thanks in advance for your feedback!

    • John,

      Thanks! I’m glad you liked it. Thanks also for sending links to it to so many of your friends and colleagues. I really appreciate your help in getting the word out!

    Good Job! This is great stuff – the software and the video. It is nice to understand what you have been working on. Your explanation is clear and persuasive. Your lecture style is a lot like your dad’s – and you know that is good.

    The efficiency of the pair-wise testing strategy is colossal.

    Two minor points. 1) At the beginning there are a lot of graphics flashing by that are not supported by the dialogue. 2) Testing tool is misspelled under your photo. Number 2 is an error like I once made in a course note on writing, in which I said “No spelling errors and no errors in grammer.”


    • Mac,

      Thank you for the kind words! They made my day. Reading your comments feels especially good since you were a great friend and former colleague of my dad’s.

      I’ve helped start up two other companies – Boom Securities, Asia’s first online stock brokerage and Xelector, a European comparison shopping firm that is a bit like LendingTree. Starting up Hexawise feels different because I’m more personally and emotionally invested in what Hexawise does; I want to build Hexawise and “spread the word” about the dramatic efficiency improvements that are available in software testing because the methods directly related to the “Design of Experiments” methods my dad taught to manufacturing firms in the 1970’s and 1980’s.

      I’ll fix the typo now and improve the connection between the words and graphics in the early part of the presentation in the next version of the video.

      Thanks again.

      – Justin
