Test-Design Based Thinking For Fun and Profit

Presented by: Jenna Charlton, Jenny Bramble

Test design-based thinking is critical at every level of software development, starting at the user story and continuing until the code has been deployed to production. Testers, developers, designers, and product owners all benefit from understanding the basic techniques for developing good test cases. Developers will find this invaluable when writing unit tests and engaging in TDD, automation engineers can apply these techniques to test creation, and of course manual testers use these techniques to build meaningful and targeted test cases.

Explore the science and the art of designing test cases for unit testing, manual testing, and automated testing, getting hands-on with practical exercises designed to challenge and deepen your skills. Jenna and Jenny share key agile, focused test design techniques, including equivalence class, boundary-value, decision table, state transition, and pair/triwise. Leave this workshop with a newfound confidence for developing test cases that find important bugs earlier, and methods to apply these techniques while pairing and mobbing with your team.
