Alexandra & Thomas - Exploratory testing for everyone
Exploratory testing is one of the most important tools any project member can have. Any time we “check whether something works”, “test the bug fix” or “perform tests for a new feature”, we can (and should) use exploratory testing techniques.
Even though the technique is so important, it is still misunderstood. It’s thought to be “clicking around” or “unstructured testing”. In this talk, we’ll demonstrate and explain what exploratory testing is and will also provide participants with reasons why they should be using it in their teams. We’ll provide analogies to other work we do in development teams (like debugging or identifying error causes) and look at how exploratory testing can be used beyond the UI.
To round off, we’ll give hints about where, how and when to use it in your process, be it agile or traditional or a mix of both.
