    Topic: Communication

    Date: October 23rd: 6:00pm @ Equal Experts

    As testers, it's our job to gain and share the information we learn from the product and project. To do that we must be experts in communicating with our peers, managers and stakeholders, and understanding what their needs are.

    In this session we will be covering:

    • Listening and questioning techniques
    • Styles of communication

    Do you find yourself frustrated by the lack of challenge in your testing role, managing mountains of test cases, or increasingly aware of the bugs that slip through your net? Adopting Exploratory testing can help relieve these frustrations, but how do you go about performing ET in a way that is effective for both you and your team?

    Join Dan and Mark for an interactive one-day Introduction to Exploratory testing where you will engage in discussions and exercises to learn about:

    • What Exploratory testing is
    • How to identify and organise your Exploratory testing activities
    • Techniques to help you generate test ideas during Exploratory testing activities
    • Test notes and reporting techniques

    By the end of the day you will be able to conduct exploratory testing in a way that is:

    • Structured and well reported to support your team and stakeholders
    • Challenging and engaging for you whilst enabling you to test effectively and with speed

    Attendees will also have the benefit of mentors. There will be a mentor per table of 5 students, really improving the support on offer. Add Dan and Mark back into the equation and you've got a great opportunity to learn about Exploratory Testing.

    Technical testing encompasses lots of different techniques, so instead of the usual exercises and discussions, we will be hosting a Technical Testing circus! Our circus will involve Mentors hosting 'stands' demonstrating different Technical testing techniques all at the same time! Students will have the evening to move from stand to stand and get involved in lots of fun exercises and games to learn what it means to be a technical tester.

    Some of the sessions that will be covered include:

    • API Testing
    • Internet of Things
    • Security testing
