Discover your Explorer Soul

Meet your hidden power of exploratory testing and add fun to your testing journey

Discover new ways to explore your product under test and use a funny way to reveal the unknown unknowns. Join us to complement your tester’s toolbox.

Albert Einstein once said, "I have no special talents, I'm just passionately curious." This quote is not only true for a world famous theoretical physicist but also for the guild of exploratory testers. Driven by curiosity and coffee (or another hot beverage of choice) an exploratory tester spends time with the software artifacts and tries to unlock the hidden gem, discover areas where no user has been before, and find the unknown unknowns that could bear a risk to the software under test. Common misconceptions make us believe that exploratory testing does not require skills. In this workshop we will help you unlock crucial traits that will help the tester in you to find those unknown unknowns hidden deep down in the software, forgotten or never revealed in any documentation. From theoretical introductions and concrete examples based on our experience, we are pleased to run some hands-on exercises with you. During the session we will help you train your brain and think outside the box so that you can meet the explorer in you. Let’s experience together how you can apply exploratory testing. You will find out how ideas and software can be discovered. Learn how you can apply and incorporate the learnings from the workshop in your everyday testing. Join us in the workshop and unlock your inner explorer.
