Talk Description

Welcome to TestBash... Don't Panic. Seriously... that comes way later. 

I will be your guide in this special place. Testers have come here from across the globe (or flat plane... depending on your physics preferences) to exchange ideas, trade in techniques and generally immerse themselves in the world of software testing today. But what are these terms we hear?

"Test Charters"?



"What do you mean by that's checking, not testing"?

Seriously, where's my babel fish? How am I supposed to understand all these amazing ideas if we are using terms that nobody has ever used back home?

That's where the Guide comes in. This immersive, interactive and friendly book will help you navigate every new challenge you might encounter while exploring the world of TestBash. From the great debates of automation, to the dangers of testcases... from the fall of waterfall to the rise of agilefall...  the Guide will help establish a safe baseline of where we are, how we got here, and why it might matter. Also, the Guide come with a nice head called Martin who talks to you so you don't have to read it.

Now, sit back and enjoy the conference.

Human in Software

With over fifteen years of specialization in software testing and development, Martin Hynie’s attention has gradually focused towards embracing uncertainty, and redefining testing as a critical research activity. The greatest gains in quality can be found when we emphasize communication, team development, business alignment and organizational learning.

A self-confessed conference junkie, Martin travels the world incorporating ideas introduced by various sources of inspiration (including Cynefin, complexity theory, context-driven testing, the Satir Model, Pragmatic Marketing, trading zones, agile principles, and progressive movement training) to help teams iteratively learn, to embrace failures as opportunities and to simply enjoy working together.
