Talk Description

Join Simon Tomes for another round of what's happening in The Testing Planet.

In this session, Simon is joined by Andrea Jensen, Mahathee Dandibhotla and Parveen Khan where they explore what the community has to say about Testing Tools.

The discussion explored how testing professionals discover, learn and utilise new tools. The team presented poll results from the community to gauge opinions on these topics. 


What you’ll learn

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

  • Understand that the primary source for discovering new testing tools is the testing community
  • Recognise that most testers prefer learning new tools through hands-on experience rather than relying solely on external resources
  • Appreciate the importance of balancing tool usage with essential testing skills like critical thinking and problem-solving
