TesTrek 2011 in Toronto – Nov. 7th to 10th

Sign up for an Object Sharp workshop on Exploratory Testing at TesTrek 2011 in Toronto, Ontario on November 11th at 1:30pm. Myself and Dave Lloyd will be presenting plus giving you hands on experience doing exploratory testing. See how to overcome the challenges of tracking the steps you took, reporting bugs and retesting exploratory bugs.

Experience and Overcome the Challenges of Exploratory Testing

In 1983, the term Exploratory Testing was introduced. Prior to that, we called it ad-hoc testing. Exploratory testing is said to be a mindset, a way of thinking, freestyle testing that liberates the tester to explore. Testers, through experience, know their applications inside out; they are the users in reality. Freeing testers to explore and use the application has been proven to identify more bugs then traditional scripted testing. However, there are obstacles and challenges related to this freestyle testing. Join this workshop to explore those obstacles hands on and learn how we can overcome them. Explore an application with known bugs and see if you can find them.

  • Experience exploratory testing using the Microsoft Test Manager Tool.
  • Do your own exploratory testing on a Virtual Machine in the cloud.
  • Discover the difficulties of exploratory testing, how to track the steps, report the bug, and perform retesting.
  • Participate in idea generation for overcoming the issues of exploratory testing.

Sign up for the first TesTrek hands-on workshop.
