SYVE Around The World- Almost there

Meet Julia, the project manager for SYVE Around The world.  

We have now walked for a little bit over a month in this year’s set up, together we have at this time walked close to 60 000 000 steps with 139 participants. This year we had set the goal to walk around the world. This is the second year we at System Verification arrange this type of internal walking competition. Read about last year here. Last time we walked 97% around the globe, before the first team reached the finish line in Stockholm. It felt a bit like we stumbled on the finish line, which inspired this year's set up.  

We have walked virtually through Italy, Lebanon, India, Vietnam, Indonesia, South Africa, Argentina and soon we will pass France before we will reach the finish line in Croatia, Spilt. Why Split you may wonder? This year all our regions will finally meet in person again, at our annual conference, that will actually take place in Split! A perfect opportunity to also have an award ceremony for SYVE Around The World. All the teams are mixed with colleagues from all our hubs around Europe and I think that this will really ‘’tie up the sack’’ for this year's competition.

Student QA Mingle

Last week our Talent Acqusition Team hosted a student event, at our HQ in Malmö. They invited students that are currently studying to become software test engineers at EC Utbildning in Malmö. This program and System Verification’s niche are very aligned, and we are happy for our continued collaboration with EC. System Verification has employees that has studied this program before, both newly graduated and some more experienced. A perfect match for future opportunities for students to land a matching job and for us to connect with these talents.

The evening consisted of interesting and insightful panel discussions together with some of our expert consultants and our very own doctor in Software Quality Assurance, Magnus C Ohlsson. Before the event the students had submitted what they were most curious to know about test, QA and the role as consultant. Resulted in different topics and discussions - both on a more technical level but also everything from agile methodologies, qualities as a tester and different roles within QA.

With amazing food and drinks that was served later we had a great time. The evening continued with some contact-making mingle with our experts and the students.

Congratulations on the victory! How does it feel to be the best at FIFA 2021 in the whole office complex?

''It feels really good! There were some tough opponents, but we managed to win in the end! Very fun to have these kind of events within the community. I haven’t played in a while actually, but it’s always big fun to play with friends when I get the chance!'' Patrick says. ''Thank you! It's not something that I expected to be at my workplace (but I'll take it), it feels great! I feel that it was a hard fought victory against some great opponents. It’s also a fun form to socialize in I must say! '' Goran says.

How agile is the V model?

The V model has played a huge part of the evolution of developing that we see today. Legend has it that it was developed in Germany during the early 1990’s and its mission was to describe the complex ritual of what we today know as developing. The model describes needs, that gets broken down to System architecture which leads to detailed design. The steps of the V model have many names so keep that in mind if you ever talk to someone about this model. However, the fundamental principle is to create requirement(s) structure based on a need. The second and third level of the model describes that development takes place and at the bottom we so how the developed system is tested. At the “test” step we need to keep in mind what I wrote earlier; a step of the model can be called different things depending on who you talk to. Some refer to testing activities as Test, validation or verification.  All three concepts are important to consider when assuring oneself about the quality of the product/system. I keep this note always in my head:
