Lessons From Famous Detectives for Testers - Geoffrey van der Tas
This talk is about the exploring part of testing. Where/When details matter, investigating information properly and knowing how to spend your time wisely with the enormous time pressure. This is something detectives also do. Only their goal is to tackle the mysterious this world has to offer and trying to solve them. But we as testers will not focus on solving crimes, capturing killers or finding missing persons. No, we tackle the mystery of delivering high-quality software.
During this talk we will discover how detectives do their job. How do they solve crimes? How do they spot so many details? How do they process the great amount of information? How do they organize important information from the rest? I will show how we can apply their practices to become better testers.
We will dive into the world of the great detectives (also fictional ones) like Sherlock Holmes & Doctor Watson, J Edgar Hoover & John Luther.
