Testing is a craft, but it is also and for many foremost a job. A job you do day in day out, evolving with all the rituals every employee develops over time. These rituals, together with all sorts of other external factors (deadlines, pressure, etc.) often means that we don’t have a test strategy or that we are no longer reconsidering the strategies we set out from the start. Having the right strategy in testing is important to stay as efficient and effective as you can be.

This workshop wants to reignite your strategic fire by placing you in small groups. Together you will devise a strategy for a real life product which includes methods, tools and planning. However, just like in reality the context will change, and our strategy must change accordingly to aptly react to that change. This 4-hour workshop will use the TestSphere cards as a support to spark discussions and for bolstering your strategy.

Who should attend

This workshop is designed for anyone involved in a software development project but it will be particularly interesting for:

  • Test Automation Engineers
  • Manual Testers
  • Software Engineers
  • Product Owners
  • Scrum Masters

What will you learn

The RiskStorm Test Strategy workshop aims to help teams generate an effective testing strategy. During the workshop participants will learn:

  • how to use TestSphere and familiarise yourselves with the testing concepts involved
  • how to identify which quality aspects matter most for a given product
  • how to identify risks that endanger the above quality aspects
  • Effective ways to test applications / products while making sure that risks will not materialise

Participants will work in teams to discuss and describe a strategy to tackle a real life case and use TestSphere to design a concrete testing strategy on the real life problem.

About the Instructor

Beren Van Daele is a software tester from Belgium who shapes teams and testers to improve on their work and their understanding of testing. An organizer of BREWT: the Belgian Peer conference & a testing meetup in his hometown: Ghent and speaker at multiple European conferences.

Together with the Ministry of Testing he has created TestSphere, a card game that gets people thinking & talking about testing. His dream is to become a test coach for people that nobody believes in anymore or no longer believe in themselves. People that have motivation and will, but no luck. He wants to tap into that potential and give them the opportunity to become kick-ass testers.
