About This Masterclass

In this masterclass you will learn what exploratory testing is and what it is not along with the different techniques available to use for exploratory testing. Furthermore, I will discuss some of the myths around exploratory testing and why exploratory testing is important and still relevant in the CI/CD and shift-left world.

I will further run a mock exploratory testing session on a real world web application to solidify our learnings and to put some of the discussed techniques in practice. This may serve as a guide to exploratory testing sessions.

And finally, I will introduce you to a visual and easy to use guide to run effective exploratory testing sessions - The exploratory testing playbook. The playbook is aimed at empowering individuals to implement and evangelize exploratory testing in their teams or organization.

So let's explore!
