ONLINE: Rapid Software Testing Applied

This online seminar applies Rapid Software Testing Methodology to testing a specific product. Rapid Software Testing (RST) is all about that. It is a responsible approach to software testing, centered around people who do testing and people who need it done. It is a methodology (in the sense of “a system of methods”) that embraces tools (aka “automation”) but emphasizes the role of skilled technical personnel who guide and drive the process.

Rapid Software Testing Applied (RSTA), focuses on Rapid Software Testing in practice. Instead of explaining every part of the methodology to you, we focus on a particular product. We survey it, analyze it, perform tests and report bugs. The instructor reviews the work with a practical eye and provides coaching throughout the experience. Testers practice notetaking, product analysis, risk analysis, bug reporting and test reporting.

There will be several webinar briefings each day, and Mattermost (chatroom) support throughout the sessions. Note that the second day has a different schedule and includes four webinars. So, the overall agenda looks like this:

Rapid Software Testing Explored is for you if you take testing seriously and want to have pride in your work:

  • If you are new to testing, we will introduce you to professional testing and provide exercises that help you develop you natural testing talents.
  • If you are an experienced tester, we will help you put words to the tacit skills you have gained over time and provide exercises that help you refine them. You will appreciate that RST is a practitioner‐centered methodology– you are in control.
  • If you are a technical tester, you will learn how your technical knowledge and ability to write code can supercharge the testing process.
  • If you are a developer who does some testing, your deep knowledge of product internals is both a crucial resource and a potential liability. You’ll learn how to improve the intrinsic testability of the product and how to manage your biases.
  • If you manage people who test, you have the power to steer them and create an environment to help them do their most effective work. You will learn what good testing looks like, how to judge the progress of testing, and how to set high, yet reasonable expectations for the testing process.
  • If you are a domain expert who does some testing, we will help you apply your deep knowledge of how the product is used and who uses it. You’ll learn how to find better bugs during acceptance testing—and help others do it too.
  • If you work with people who test, you will gain an appreciation for the challenges of testing, discover how you can support the testing process, and learn what good testing can do for you.
