Training: Experienced-Based Techniques

Exploratory Testing - 1 hour
Exploratory Testing is an approach to testing that uses a variety of techniques rather than a technique itself. Learn how to use this approach in a structured yet flexible way. Understand the various "light-weight" documentation that is produced during Exploratory Testing sessions; Charters to document the test mission, test ideas and high level test cases, test summary reports for each session and how to produce good quality bug reports with limited time available. Learn how effective this approach can be, particularly when there is limited time to test, lack of specifications or versatility is key to the success of the project.

Fault Attacks - 1 hour

There are numerous attacks that testers can make on software; from fundamental attacks such as "buffer overflow" to more complex attacks such as "forcing software to use corrupt files". Learn how to master these attacks and the types of bugs that can be detected using these attacks. The session shows that using these attacks is more than trying to break the system. It allows the tester to increase their skills and abilities to detect bugs, moving the novice/advanced tester to becoming an expert tester being able choosing the right attack for the right application and system.
