Event Description

You're a tester, a developer, a business analyst, or someone who manages them. No matter what kind of development model you're using Agile, DevOps, Lean, Scrum, or something more traditional and no matter what kind of business you're in;an established financial institution, big telecom, a medical device company, or a social media startup;the essential mission of testing is always the same. Managers, developers, and the other clients of testing have a central question: are there problems that threaten the on-time, successful completion of our task? Rapid Software Testing answers that question.

Rapid Software Testing (RST) is a complete testing methodology, designed for a world of barely sufficient resources, information, and time. It's is a mind-set and a skill-set focused on performing testing more quickly and less expensively while still completely fulfilling the mission of testing.The approach begins with developing personal skills and extends to the ultimate purpose of software testing: lighting the way of the project by evaluating the product for problems that threaten its value.

RST isn't just testing with a speed or sense of urgency; it's mission-focused testing that eliminates unnecessary work while assuring that necessary work gets done and important questions get answered. RST asks what testing can do to help lower cost, defends value, and speed the project as a whole in any development.

If you are an experienced tester, developer, business analyst, or manager, you'll find out how to reframe and articulate those intellectual processes of testing that you already practice intuitively.You'll discover how to model risk, how to design and describe your test coverage, and how to report problems and progress effectively. You'll learn how to talk about the product and your work clearly without resorting to unhelpful and misleading metrics. If you're a new tester, hands-on testing exercises will help you gain critical experience.

Although Michael lives in Toronto, this is the only public offering of Rapid Software Testing scheduled for Canada this year. Don't miss out on this rare opportunity!
