Achieving Real Test Agility with Session-Based Exploration

Add to calendar

The authors of the Agile Manifesto wanted to emphasize lightweight and collaborative ways to deliver good quality software, not create a bunch of procedures and rituals to blindly follow. If you find that your project considers testing to be only about making sure you have unit tests for every method or a user story for every requirement, you may be missing out on a lot of bugs. Join Jon Bach to learn about session-based exploration, a lightweight and fun way to find new and emerging issues while also managing your testing focus and increasing your effectiveness as a quality engineer. Preserve the true spirit of testing with the original agile method: exploration.
