Getting a Grip on Exploratory Testing - 15-16 May 2008
This two-day hands-on class will be delivered in central London by James Lyndsay. Class size is limited to 12 people. Price £660 per person includes materials and lunch.
An enjoyably interactive hands-on tutorial introducing delegates to a wide variety of approaches to exploratory testing – active play, systematic exploration, modelling for success and failure, questioning, attacks and exploitations. Discussions cover ways of getting the best out of time spent exploring, good and bad choices for exploration, and approaches to managing exploration and diagnosis. Some exercises are computer-based (using Workroom Productions’ custom-built “Black Box” machines in Flash), and delegates are encouraged to download exercises before the tutorial, and bring their laptops to use or share. Use this link for examples of publicly-available black box test machines. Most suitable for people with hands-on experience of testing.
This is a rare opportunity to take this course in the UK, as it is typically customised and taught on-site. Corporate clients who have recently taken this option include Nokia, Google, TCL, Thomson Financial.
Please note: participants who bring laptops will get the most out of this session.
