(Re)invent your test strategy

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 with your fellow testers. 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. The workshop will use an interactive visualisation method as a support to spark discussions and for bolstering your strategy.

Beren Van Daele

I’m a software tester from Belgium who helps shape teams and testers to improve on their work and their understanding of testing. I’m an organizer of BREWT: the Belgian Peer conference & a test meetup in his hometown: Gent. The creative brain behind Test Sphere and speaker at Test Bash Manchester and Eurostar 2016. My 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. I want to tap into that potential and give them the opportunity to become awesome tester.

François Le nôtre

Ingénieur tests & validation chez AVM Up, un éditeur de logiciels proposant des solutions allant du serveur à reconnaissance vocale aux solutions hébergées Saas ‘sans-papier’ afin d’améliorer le traitement des commandes client.

Egalement co-organisateur du Meetup Lyon Testing, qui propose régulièrement des présentations autour du test logiciel.

Ce que j’aime:

  • L'exploration et les variations dans les tests, que je combine pour une efficacité redoutable,
  • La collaboration avec les autres équipes pour livrer les projets et partager les connaissances
  • Le Hong Ha et son magnifique Bò bún, le meilleur restaurant vietnamien de Lyon incontestablement!

Ce que je n’aime pas:

  • Enregistrer des rapports d’anomalie mineures sur l’ergonomie dans un outil de suivi des bugs,
  • Les problèmes liés à l’environnement de test qui empêchent de passer du temps à réellement tester,
  • Les restaurants qui vendent de la nourriture industrielle à des prix élevés.
