Exploratory testing is a valuable tool for anyone working on a project. It allows testers, developers and product owners to identify unknown risks, achieve lightweight yet valuable testing, and keeps our eyes open to new problems despite working on the software for a long time. It is an important pillar of quality alongside automation.
Join this interactive talk to find out what exploratory testing is, why it is so important, and to see live narrated exploratory testing on stage.
Target Audience: Developers, Testers, Product Owners
Exploratory testing is one of the most important tools a 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 interactive talk, I'll demonstrate and explain what exploratory testing is and will also provide participants with reasons why they should be using it in their teams.
To round off, I'll give hints about where, how and when to use it in your process, be it agile or traditional or a mix.
