Welcome back to the Association for Software Testing’s webinar series! We are happy to return for another season and we’ve got a great start for the new year!
To improve as a skilled tester, you don’t necessarily have to attend a class or read a book. James Bach and Michael Bolton show how you can grow as a tester by recording and then dissecting just minutes of your test process.
By looking very carefully at what you actually do, identifying your own heuristics, and putting that process into descriptive, evocative words, you can discover surprising depths in each act of testing you perform. In a testopsy, you build your skills of observation, narration, and test framing. You may even discover a technique no one yet has written about. And if you do it with a colleague, it stimulates discussion on test design.
Join us on January 8th, 11am PST to learn more about Testopsies – Dissecting Your Testing with James Bach and Michael Bolton.
