Re-inventing testing – a discussion about science, exploration and innovation

Level: Beginner

Is testing keeping up with the advances of software development? Are our approaches evolving as quickly as the new technologies, or are we being left behind, using the same methods and techniques as we did decades ago?

Testing needs to get more innovative! Scientific discovery relies on innovation; on scientists being willing to pursue new ideas even if it means having to learn new methods or technologies. Similarly testers need to be creative and courageous, exploring new approaches and questioning old habits. Science is credible, curiosity-driven, critical, impartial and dynamic; science continuously challenges and questions methods, techniques and core beliefs. Shouldn’t testing do the same?

Taking inspiration from the scientific method, this session suggests an approach for testing that encourages innovation through creativity and collaboration. You are provided with new insights that can help you re-invent your testing!
