Exploratory testing is an approach to testing that has its place in any software development project. Focused on the just-delivered system, it exposes real-world problems more rapidly and more effectively than approaches that focus on prior expectations. It is a powerful complement to scripted testing, especially when matched with the large-scale confirmatory testing that is often found on agile projects.
Yet, misconceptions about exploratory testing still abound. People have put it away as “random” testing, unmanageable and undocumented, while it is in fact a discipline in its own right: a creative and intellectually challenging activity that requires special skills to do it well. Good exploratory testers find better bugs, and give fast, clear feedback to their teams.
This workshop makes a case for thoughtful exploration, covering important aspects like modelling and heuristics. It shows how to use tools to increase effectiveness in exploration and how exploratory testing can be made more manageable and systematic. With a number of hands-on exercises, you will be able to try out a range of exploratory techniques for yourselves, so bring a Windows-based laptop if you can.
