F12 – 705/805: There Can Be Only One: A Testing Competition (Part 1 and 2)

Track: Hands-On Practicals

This double-track session integrates the previous talks and applies them, simulating real software testing. After a quick exercise to create teams of 2-6 testers (or bring your own), you will be plunged into the real world of software testing: Fun challenges, delivered under time pressure and conditions of uncertainty. Teams will be judged on coverage, bugs found, the quality of the communication they have with “management” and “the rest of the technical staff”, new approaches and strategy/leadership. Stick around after the competition, because prizes will be awarded on the main stage Thursday morning.

Bring your laptop, your mobile device, your mind, and your best test ideas to this high-paced race for test excellence.

See you on the playing field.
