Exploratory Testing Workshop

Exploratory Testing Workshop
Event on 2017-09-25 09:00:00
The course covers the following subject Exploratory testing is about making an effective use of our available resources, skills and practical knowledge and about finding as many high severity defects as possible within a certain time limit. It is based on the tester’s skills, knowledge about testing and system at hand, and known testing methods and tools. Exploratory testing is often integrated in the test strategy together with regular manual testing. As testers, we learn about the system more and more during the project, and additional ‘exploratory tests’ (or heuristics) should be added continuously to our current manual test cases repository. However, we may find ourselves sometimes with vague requirements, no specification documents, or asked to test very early while there are no mature documents. We may find ourselves identifying clusters of defects in certain areas, we are concerned about. In these cases and more, Exploratory Testing can be a very effective approach that can assist us in deploying a less risky software or system into production. Hands-on exercises will be performed throughout the workshop to exercise participants in using the techniques via the tools. Workshop objectives The objectives of this workshop is to give the participants a practical overview of What is Exploratory Testing? When and where to use Exploratory Testing? How to run an effective ET session? What to measure in an ET session? How to manage an ET session? These questions and more are a part of the challenges we face in implementing ET today, whether it is in incremental models or more recently in iterative models (i.e. Agile).The workshop emphasizes the implementation of exploratory testing methods and mindset. A mini-project shall be introduced, with class students working in pairs, plus a full day of individual work on your OWN systems (as much as possible) shall be facilitated – bring your own project to class!!!Through presentation, discussion, debate, brainstorming, questioning, and fun – we shall go through terminology, methodology, concepts and tools and learn how to run ET sessions. Required equipment: The workshop includes hands-on exercises, and participants are required to have their laptop with them in class including Office 2010 and up, internet connection, and access to their email account.Required knowledge: Participants should h
