Collaborative Exploratory and Unit Testing

Testing is about feedback. Working through the questions of what and how of testing, we’ve refined a tester-facing discipline of Exploratory testing and a developer-facing discipline of Unit Testing. We’ve built in-depth skills in those disciplines, their belief systems and their variations. We’ve brought specialists of each discipline to same teams to deliver software that is closer to ready for its stakeholders, together. In addition to understanding and valuing both the disciplines, we still need to mix the people of different disciplines with hands-on collaboration to harness the right insights of exploration to protect code. Cross-pollination of the two is needed for both sides to truly flourish.

How do natural scientists test their ideas?
Science means knowledge, from latin scientia. However, scientific knowledge is not any kind of knowledge. It is a specific knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe. It has been accumulated and organized by a procedure called the scientific method. In this lecture the scientific method is going to be explained as well as the benefit of applying it to everyday life and even to software testing.
