The Case of the Tenacious Tester: How Using Your Words Improves QA Work

Presented by: Katrina Ohlemacher
Time: Friday, Jan. 10, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

"Never trust to general impressions, my boy, but concentrate yourself upon details." So says Sherlock Holmes in “A Case of Identity.” The Great Detective has a lot to say that applies to software testing: pay attention to detail, never make assumptions, use your imagination. We wouldn’t have Sherlock Holmes without good writing and great storytelling, and this talk has a lot to say about how using your own writing and storytelling skills makes for better reporting, better reproducibility, better team dynamics and better overall testing. Katrina will cover note-taking, bug reports, client communication and more, all with help from Baker Street’s most famous resident.
