Exploratory Testing Profession

The compact training for the professional testers Leipzig, March 2013: on 28/29 November 2013 the exploratory Seminar takes place for the second test. Under the technical direction of Prof. Dr. Mario Winter (University of applied sciences Cologne) this is carried out in Stuttgart. Application systems must be tested in the context of development projects. This task often falls to staff from the Department, acting as the customer, client or user.

Only they know the professional relationships, which are implemented in the application, in sufficient breadth and depth. With this knowledge, they can assess whether the application in functional and qualitative terms meets your requirements. These technical tests are not performed but often with defined test cases, but the professional testers try intuitively the application. This type of test also known as exploratory testing. The difficulty in this test procedure is now that you don’t know exactly how well the application is really tested.

The professional Tester is especially specialist, but usually It lacks the methodical and technical know-how to good exploratory testing. How to provoke errors in an application? What are the typical weak points? What inputs and value areas frequently cause problems? Is the application not up to the breadcrumbs? How do you find as many as possible of the critical error? There is much experience knowledge, which is the professional testers but often not known. In this seminar, professional testers are trained to exactly these questions. The knowledge is presented completely practical, applied in group exercises and deepened, and can be applied after the seminar immediately.
