Exploratory Testing is a discipline. Focussed on the just-delivered system, it exposes real-world problems more rapidly and more reliably than approaches which concentrate on prior expectations. It forms a powerful complement to scripted testing, and is especially powerful when matched with the large-scale confirmatory testing found on agile projects. Good exploratory testers find better bugs, and give fast, clear feedback to their teams. Many testers are able to work without scripts and explore a system. However, most take a single exploratory approach, and so become less effective when they have exhausted that approach. Many teams use exploratory testing, but do not know how to manage it effectively.
This course allows participants to experience a range of exploratory techniques in a disciplined framework that will allow exploratory testing to be managed and integrated with existing test activities. The course is built around hands-on, brain-engaged exercises designed to enhance and reinforce the learning experience.
Participants will discover:
- The test design skills to probe a system and trigger a bug
- The analysis skills to model the system and understand a bug
- The discipline to manage their exploration and sustain their bug rate
