    Essentials: Learning How To Test A Product


    99 Minute Workshop


    When starting out in testing it can feel daunting, testing software for the first time. As a professional tester, you are taking the step from being a user of software to a tester of software. Which means being more deliberate and focused in how we explore and test systems. The best way to become comfortable is through practices, which is why in this workshop we'll look at taking our first steps into testing a product.

    During this workshop, you will have the opportunity to test a product in a safe environment and reflect on how to improve your testing and generate new test ideas.

    Quality Coach / Senior Quality Engineer
    I’m a Quality Coach & Tester that helps orgs, teams & individuals understand the relationship between quality & testing to help them build better products & deliver more effective services. I’ve been testing since 2002 starting with video games on PS2, Xbox & PC. It may not sound like a real job but it’s the truth! By day I’m a Senior Quality Engineer at a health tech night I run Abode of Quality. Here is one of my core values: “The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude (& how you’re thinking) about the problem.” - Captain Jack Sparrow (the part in brackets was my addition though!) I believe that quality & testing problems are actually people problems in disguise! Often the cause of these problems is misaligned goals, different perspectives, low empathy for colleagues, and the list goes on. Using my coaching skills in the quality & testing space, I believe the most effective way to serve the business, is to help teams & individuals gain new perspectives about themselves & their teammates.
