Talk Description

Strap yourselves in and prepare to witness a live, no holds barred, ragin' cagin' exploratory testing experience. Watch as Adam explores and investigates a mystery piece of software with only his wits, charter and some trusty heuristics to guide him. Throughout the live session, a play-by-play commentary will help you get inside the mind of a skilled exploratory tester and pick up some specific and practical tips on how to consciously interrogate a system, but also help grow your exploratory testing vocabulary so you can better communicate your techniques and your observations.
