Cross-team Pair Testing: Lessons of a Testing Traveler…

Time: 09:20 - 10:05
Talk: Key1

 

Did you ever wonder how to improve your testing skills? Well, I did. So I decided to run an experiment. My hypothesis: “I believe that pairing and mobbing with fellow testers from the community on hands-on exploratory testing and automation will result in continuously increasing skills and knowledge as well as serendipitous learning.

I’ll know I have succeeded when I noted down at least one concrete new insight or applied one new technique per testing session and shared that with the community.”

In this talk, I will share the lessons learned on my journey as well as tips for doing pair testing sessions yourself. Let’s uncover if my hypothesis proved true, that a testing tour is indeed a feasible and valuable way to improve your testing knowledge and skills!
