Comprehensive software testing that is fast, inexpensive and credible
Personally delivered by the creator of this MasterClass James Bach.
Unlike industry 'best practice' approaches to testing, this MasterClass presents an approach to testing that begins with personal skill development.
Rapid Software Testing is mission-focussed testing that eliminates unnecessary work, ensures everything necessary gets done, and constantly asks what testing can do to speed up the project.
One important tool that James will cover is the discipline of exploratory testing - essentially a testing martial art.
"What a wonderful experience to be taught by THE MASTER James Bach. Also worthy of note are the great course notes and the references throughout to other useful resources."
Beverly Kelly, Redland Shire Council.
This MasterClass is useful to all levels of testers, but seems to be most appreciated by experienced testers who want to become expert testers.
This course is designed to challenge and will encourage open debate throughout the three days. Come prepared to interact, discuss and be vocal! We try to make the class the most stimulating intellectual experience you can handle.
By the end of this course participants will be able to:
- Apply concise, universal heuristics and models for instant test design
- Tackle any product or product idea instantly
- Analyse a test heuristic or practice
- Test despite ambiguous or missing specifications
- Deal with overwhelming complexity or confusion
- Know when to stop or suspend the test process
- Prepare and deliver an impromptu test report.
