F10 – 201: Explore Beyond the Obvious

Track: Hands-On Testing Techniques Lab

As testers, we conduct technical investigations of products to provide stakeholders with quality-related information. We engage our minds to harness the powers of observation, curiosity, and critical thinking, while testing a variety of products from small isolated applications to large complex multi-system environments. Appearances are deceiving though. Seemingly simple applications and features hide a depth of complexity, while obviously complex systems hide more complexity than we can envision. How can we stay engaged to discover what is hidden when we trap ourselves into believing in the simplicity? This session will challenge you to escape the simplicity trap. With a focused testing mission in hand, you will test an application using simple testing techniques that help you move beyond the obvious and discover what is hidden beneath the surface. Attend this session to practice, and gain insights into, simple approaches you can apply at work to quickly learn new information about the products you test.
