Callum answered questions covering heuristics, how to debrief your team, the importance of notes and the tools you can use to do. Plus helping you explain the importance of exploratory testing to your team and when you've done "enough" exploratory testing. A first for an Ask Me Anything - Callum had slides prepared and help provide a deeper understanding to the answers he gave! You can find a copy of the slides in the resources section.
