Warsaw & Wroclaw, Poland, April 2011 — Michael Hackett, co-founder and Senior Vice President of LogiGear, together with VictO Academy, will give test engineers in Poland a global understanding of exploratory testing. The two-day classes will take place in Warsaw 4-5 April and in Wroclaw 6-7 April.
Exploratory testing is an approach to software testing that is concisely described as simultaneous learning, test design and test execution. The term was coined in 1999 by Cem Kaner, LogiGear founder Hung Q. Nguyen and Jack Falk in their book Testing Computer Software. The publication launched the widely known style of software testing that emphasizes the personal freedom and responsibility of the individual tester to continually optimize the quality of his/her work by treating test-related learning, test design, test execution, and test result interpretation as mutually supportive activities that run parallel throughout the project. The main advantage of exploratory testing is that less preparation is needed, important bugs are found quickly and at execution time, the approach tends to be more intellectually stimulating than execution of scripted tests.
Established in 1994, LogiGear University, the leader in training software test engineers, has developed a unique curriculum based on decades of Silicon Valley experience with trainings delivered in 15 countries. This two-day course in exploratory testing will teach test engineers how to become more productive using the method’s benefits and how to avoid its pitfalls.
