A Tester's Experience of Exploratory Testing
Elaine Wilmot, Test Manager, Edge Testing
Exploratory testing is an approach to software testing that is concisely described as simultaneous learning, test design and test execution. It is about exploring the software in a structured manner, and finding out what it does and doesn’t do. The basic principle is “What happens when I do this?” and finding the unexpected. It is a useful approach where time is of the essence and it is important you set a timeframe set and you have also identified when testing is sufficient.

Natural Born Tester?

Was God a Tester?
Mike Tindal, Test Analyst, Edge Testing
The world of testing is an exciting dissection of the programs and software we use in our every day lives, in our interactions with businesses, our workplace and our friends. Our creations are there to make our lives easier, better, more enjoyable, yet we find that they leave us frustrated or annoyed. This is a tester’s job, to interact with these systems and make sure that when the system is released it can be used reliably.
