Talk Description

We have been using heuristics and mnemonics (knowingly or unknowingly) since our childhood. In software testing, heuristics and mnemonics are used to design and select the tests. Heuristics are highly valuable for a particular context, especially if people use them wisely. While testing, we can use these techniques to remember important elements. There are loads of heuristics in software testing and it can be a bit difficult to identify which one to use.

However, you can start reflecting on it by answering the following questions:

  • What things do you consider when starting to test a new application?
  • What are your actions during and after each testing session?

Are you curious about how can we use these in mobile application testing? In this workshop, we’ll learn about various heuristics and mnemonics and how can we use them to generate test ideas for the mobile app.

What you’ll learn

By the end of this talk, you'll be able to:

  • Understand what is heuristics and mnemonics?
  • Identify various heuristics and mnemonics available for mobile apps testing?
  • How to apply them to generate test ideas?
