Exploratory testing is often described as 'playing around with the software', or 'ad-hoc testing'. It's thought to be unstructured, 'informal' and to some, even unreliable. However exploratory testing can be incredibly powerful. Unrestrained by the confines of a script we have more room to be creative, to think 'what if'.
We can't always think of all the test ideas we need naturally, so we can use heuristics to boost our test design skills. In this workshop, we'll look at what heuristics are, and use some example testing scenarios to try applying them.
