Session notes that you use when you adopt an exploratory testing approach can be used to capture more than bugs. They not only serve as a memory of a bug, but a structured testing and learning method can be deduced from the session notes.

Software testing can be an isolated activity. While some project activities are done in a team, test execution is typically performed alone. However the concept of pair programming, a well-known practice of eXtremme programming and Agile software development, can also be applied to software testing. This presentation explains how TradeMe pairs testers to remove silos, passively educate, and increase the efficiency of testing.
You are the Selenium master and automate tests in your sleep. You make sure the quality of your companies web page is 100%. But then the team wants you to measure the performance of your site. How do you do that? Is that even possible to measure web performance with Selenium?
A team that releases every commit needs to take software testing seriously. This talk explains what kinds of testing a team needs when working with Continuous Delivery. It will need to evolve new ways of testing. It will have new dynamics of testers working with developers. It will find new ways of of interacting with customers, stakeholders and product owners. And it will have completely new demands that require the testing mindset.
Testing has been part of the software delivery lifecycle since… forever. Now, Agile methodologies make testing part of everyone’s responsibilities. But despite this, despite big steps forward with TDD, BDD, and other approaches which bring automated testing to the forefront of the development process, many developers still behave as if testing is a second class citizen. What can you do to help developers a) write tests b) write meaningful tests and c) write readable tests?
Unit testing ensures your production code is relevant. But what does ensure your testing code is relevant? Come discover mutation testing and make sure your never forget another assert again. In the realm of testing, the code coverage metrics is the most often talked about. However, it doesn’t mean that the test has been useful or even that an assert has been coded. Mutation testing is a strategy to make sure that the test code is relevant.
Software testers are limited by their role. Testers are only allowed to be testers. We need to break the current tester mold and replace it with a new role… the tester. The tester is a much bigger role than it currently is. Its much bigger, it much more valuable, its higher status and its much more fun. So do you want to be a tester? Or would you rather be a tester?
