Consisting of simultaneous test design, execution, reporting and learning, Exploratory Testing done well can be a powerful tool in any team member's arsenal. Done poorly, it can create confusion without adding much value. In this hands-on introduction, attendees will bring a laptop, pair with a buddy, hear a little theory on test design, open a real application and get to testing. We'll have some more theory, test a second application, then a third, and finally conduct a retrospective to cover what people have learned. In the retro, or time following, we can talk about how teams can adopt these techniques in a more formal way to compress testing into iterations, sprints, and other timeboxes while improving coverage and transparency of what is tested.
The test design elements of the class will include quick attacks and consistency heuristics, two ways to generate test ideas when time is tight and information limited.
Learning Outcomes:
  • The 'what' of Exploratory Testing
  • How To Perform Quick Attacks
  • And how to integrate Exploratory Testing into existing practice
  • The Role of ET in Agile Conversion
