Exploratory Testing, Why Its Important, How to Get Better, and How to Measure Success Around It

Add to calendar

Exploratory testing is a phrase that is thrown around a lot as something organizations should be doing well. But how do you define success around it, especially since the goal is to not release bugs? And how do testers or organizations know that they are doing it right? Join Belinda as she teaches you how to leverage the team and tools around you to become better at exploratory testing and prevent bugs from making it into the wild. We will be covering how to make the most of pairing with designers, product, developers, support teams and other QA's to build users personas to test against and identify areas in the system that are at risk of bugs. To sharpen our skills we will be doing exercises that you can do to get better at exploratory testing and take from the session back to your teams so make sure to bring your problem solving hat.
