F12 – 302: Software Testing Heuristics and Mnemonics

Track: Test Strategy, Process and Design

Are you curious about heuristics and how to use them? In this session, Karen Johnson explains what a heuristic is, what a mnemonic is, and how heuristics and mnemonics are sometimes used together. A number of both heuristics and mnemonics have been created in the software testing community and Karen reviews several of each and gives examples of how to use and apply heuristics and mnemonics. In this session, Karen outlines how to create your own mnemonics and heuristics. She also explores ways to use both as a way to guide exploratory testing efforts.
