Die Rebellen

House of Test ist gleichbedeutend mit der Herausforderung des Status Quos. Jedes Mitglied unseres Teams hinterfragt die traditionellen Konventionen auf seine eigene einzigartige Weise. Gemeinsam bringen wir Hardcore-Testing in den Mainstream.

Was gibt es Neues?

Werfen Sie einen Blick darauf, was los ist innerhalb der Mauern von House of Test und in den Köpfen unserer Berater. Unser Blog ist der Ort, wo wir über die neuesten Entwicklungen in der Testing Welt schreiben.


Ruhm den Mutigen

Software Testing ist ein anspruchsvolles Handwerk, welches herausragende Fähigkeiten erfordert. Um unsere Fähigkeiten zu verbessern, lehnen wir den Status Quo ab und weigern uns, Mittelmässigkeit zu akzeptieren. Die Wilden wagen anders zu sein und denken ausserhalb von Konventionen und Normen. Nicht nur sind Veränderungen willkommen, wir fordern sie aktiv und wachsen mit ihnen. Wir schätzen unsere Integrität und folgen unserer Leidenschaft – mit Herz und Seele. Aus diesem Grund lehnen wir entmenschlichende Testfabriken, unwürdige Zertifizierungssysteme und schwache Test Normen ab. Software Testing – richtig gemacht – liefert wertvolle Informationen, und wir werden die Herausforderung anzunehmen.

Wir entscheiden uns dafür, Exzellenz zu liefern, weil Sie uns wichtig sind. Sie, unsere Kunden.

Was wir tun, tun wir aus Liebe für Software Testing!

Wir geben uns nur mit Grossartigkeit zufrieden, weil Sie nichts weniger als das von uns erwarten!

Manche nennen uns Rebellen.

Wir nennen uns House of Test.

Passion für Testing

Was House of Test Consultants vom durchschnittlichen, herkömmlichen Test Consultant unterscheidet, ist ihr unaufhaltbarer Drang und Wissensdurst über Software Testing. Wir sind stolz darauf, die Nummer Eins der Context-Driven Software Testing Unternehmen in der Schweiz zu sein. Wir verfügen über einige der weltweit führenden Trainern, Coaches und Testexperten. Sie können sicher sein, dass House of Test Ihnen helfen kann, ihre Testprobleme zu lösen.

Consulting

House of Test Consulting ist nicht ein gewöhnlicher Personalverleiher oder Ressourcenanbieter. Unsere Beratung fokusiert sowohl auf die strategische Ebene als auch auf die Projektdienstleistungen. House of Test kann Ihnen eine komplette Palette von Test Dienstleistungen anbieten, und wir sind immer darauf bedacht, dass unsere Kunden das Gefühl haben, dass die Zusammenarbeit mit House of Test Wert liefert, sowohl für das aktuelle Projekt als auch für zukünftige.

House of Test bietet kompetenzbasierte Beratungsleistungen an, sowohl für kürzere Projekte, als auch für Teilzeitaufgaben wie Mentoring, Coaching, Assessments und Reorganisationen. Gerne bieten wir auch Vollzeitverträge an, entweder eingebettet in Ihre Teams oder mit uns als Projektleitung.

Unsere Consultants

Wir bei House of Test pflegen Spitzenleistung. Wir sind uns sicher, dass wir einige der besten Test Consultants der Welt im Team haben. Unsere Berater sind Experten bei der Analyse und dem Einarbeiten in neue Gebietskontexte. Das heisst, wir liefern Wert vom ersten Tag an. Unsere Consultants haben in jeder erdenklichen Branche gearbeitet, und sie sind in der Lage, in jedem Kontext zu brillieren, sei es Mobile, Internet oder in reguliertem Umfeld.

Was uns aber wirklich einzigartig macht, ist die Art, wie wir bei House of Test Kompetenzentwicklung angehen. Viele Unternehmen behaupten, guten Wissensaustausch zu pflegen, aber nur wenige gehen so weit wie wir. Wir treffen uns als Gruppe 4-5 mal pro Jahr für mehrere Tage lange Workshops über Software Testing. In viel häufigeren Zyklen tauschen wir Erfahrungen und Feedback über unsere aktuellen Testideen und Herausforderungen aus. Das ist nicht etwas, was wir forcieren müssen. Es ist einfach was passiert, wenn Sie passionierte Menschen mit gemeinsamer Leidenschaft zusammenbringen.

Coaching

House of Test verfügt über einige der erfahrensten Test Coaches auf dem Markt. Wir passen unser Coaching auf die Bedürfnisse Ihres Unternehmens, Ihres Teams oder Einzelpersonen an.

Die Aufgabe eines Coaches ist es, die Bedürfnisse, Motivationen, Wünsche und Fähigkeiten zu fördern und Denkprozesse für die Formung von dauerhaften Veränderungen zu unterstützen. Wenn wir trainieren, verwenden wir den sokratischen Ansatz mit Fragen und Antworten, die den Einzelnen in Richtung von neuen Einsichten und Erkenntnissen bringt.

Unser Coaching ist immer zielbasiert, und wir evaluieren es kontinuierlich und passen uns an, um sicherzustellen, dass wir dem vereinbarten Ziel nach jeder Coaching-Sitzung näher kommen. Wenn wir vom Kurs abkommen, korrigieren wir ihn, und wenn das Ziel mehr relevant ist, passen wir das Ziel an.

Mentoring

Der Unterschied zwischen Coaching und Mentoring ist subtil, und der Fokus zwischen Coaching und Mentoring ändert sich während einem Auftrag häufig. Das Ziel unserer Mentoring-Sitzungen ist es, Wissen und Erfahrung weiterzugeben und Türen zu öffnen, die ausser Reichweite erscheinen. Unsere Trainer verfügen über ein jahrzehntelang angesammeltes Testing Know-How und sind erfahrene Trainer und Lehrer, die eine höchst effektive Beziehung zwischen Mentor und Mentee garantieren.

Test Management

Wir glauben, Software Testing ist zu einem grossen Teil nicht vorhersehbar und unsere gemeinsame Erfahrung bestätigt das. Als Gegenmassnahme möchten wir so wenig Zeit wie möglich für die Planung aufwenden und verbringen stattdessen den Grossteil unserer Bemühungen beim Testen selbst. Natürlich planen wir. Natürlich arbeiten wir Strategien aus. Aber wir unterlassen es, den Kopf in den Sand zu stecken und zu glauben, dass sich nichts ändern wird. Wir wissen, dass wir im Verlauf des Testprojekts alle klüger und besser werden. Nicht alle Tests bleiben wertvoll. Nicht alle Bereiche behalten das gleiche Risiko.

Unser Werkzeugkasten ist sehr versatil und adaptiv und ist in der Regel unaufdringlich und passt sich den Werkzeugen und Methoden an, welche Sie in Ihrer Organisation bereits verwenden: Wir verwenden Mindmaps und Whiteboards, um die Übersicht zu behalten. Visualisierungen sind hilfreich, um Status und Ziele aufzuzeigen und aber gleichzeitig neue Ideen nicht zu beschränken. Wann immer möglich, wenden wir gerne entweder Session-Based oder Thread-Based Testing an, weil dies die Freiheit der Tester fördert, um wirklich gut testen zu können, während trotzdem alles unter Kontrolle bleibt.

Ein Grossteil des Testmanagements ist die Logistik von Menschen und ihren Qualifikationen, Software, Daten, Umgebungen und alles andere zum gewünschten Zeitpunkt bereit zu halten. Wir neigen dazu, uns auf die Tester, ihr Können und ihre berufliche Entwicklung zu konzentrieren. Wir bevorzugen es, Menschen und nicht Testfälle zu managen. Wir verwenden Coaching und Mentoring, weil wir uns nicht mit Mittelmass zufrieden geben. Wir denken, dass Tester, die zuversichtlich, geschickt und Stolz auf ihre Arbeit sind, auch die besten Resultate erbringen. Wer will schon eine “Resource” sein und ferngesteuert durchschnittliche Arbeit verrichten?

Wir ermuntern die Anwendung von verschiedenen Arten von Testreporting, weil unterschiedliche Bedürfnisse nicht mit einem standardisierten “One-Size-Fits-All”-Report abgehandelt werden können, welches vom gerade verwendeten Testmanagement Tool erzeugt wird. Unser Ziel ist es, jederzeit rechtzeitig Ergebnisse melden zu können, auf den Punkt gebracht, ohne die Unsicherheiten zu verbergen. Wie sonst können unsere Ergebnisse für Sie von Nutzen sein?

Letztlich geht es darum, vertrauenswürdige und verständliche Informationen an die richtigen Leute zur richtigen Zeit zu bringen.

Test Engineering

Unter unseren Beratern befinden sich einige der weltweit führenden Experten des Context-Driven Software Testings. House of Test ist in der Lage, Berater einzusetzen, die direkt in Ihrem Testteam arbeiten oder sich in Ihre agiles Teams einbetten, um sowohl grossartige Arbeit zu verrichten und Ihr Team darin zu schulen, das gleiche zu tun.

Wir zeigen uns von unserer besten Seite, wenn wir in einem frühen Stadium in das Projekt hinzukommen wenn die Requirements gesammelt werden, welche dann Basis unserer Teststrategie werden. Natürlich ist das Überprüfen von Anforderungen nur ein kleiner Teil dessen, was wert-orientiertes Testen ist. In dem wir proaktiv arbeiten, überarbeiten wir ständig unsere Teststrategie, und indem wir mehr über die expliziten Requirements lernen, verstehen wir auch mehr über die impliziten Requirements, was uns hilft die “unbekannten Unbekannten” aufzuspüren, bevor Sie ihr Produkt auf den Markt bringen.

Sobald ein testbares Produkt verfügbar ist, werden unsere Consultants sich darin vertiefen und die Software (oder Hardware) von allen Seiten testen. Wir haben umfangreiche Erfahrungen mit dem Testen von Produkten in einer Vielzahl von Domänen und Geschäftsbereichen, seien es mobile Anwendungen und web-basierte Dienste oder Medizinalprodukte. Wir verstehen, dass Ihr Unternehmen einzigartig ist, aber wir wagen zu behaupten, dass wir in der Lage sind, einen grossen Teil unserer kollektiven Erfahrung einzubringen. Wir liefern qualitätsbezogene Informationen, auf die Sie sich verlassen können.

Performance Testing

Eine der schwierigsten Testaufgaben für viele Organisationen ist das Performance-Testing. House of Test verfügt über umfangreiche Erfahrung bei der Erstellung und Durchführung von Performance Teststrategien mit massgeschneiderten Reports, die Ihrer Organisation hilft zu verstehen, wo Ihre Performance Verbesserungbemühungen den meisten Nutzen bringen können.

Test Automatisierung

Unsere Continuous Integration Experten können Ihrer Organisation helfen, zu einem kontinuierlich releasebaren Stand zu kommen. Wir helfen Ihnen, die richtige Build Umgebung zu finden und eine für Sie praktikable und effektive Unit Test Strategie zu implementieren.

Wir können auch dazu beitragen, die Automatisierung Ihrer Tests zu übernehmen, die Ihnen helfen, Informationen über den Zustand ihrer Software zu einem bestimmten Zeitpunkt zu gewinnen.

Automatisierung kann Ihren Testern helfen, sich auf die Exploration des Produktes zu konzentrieren, anstatt das zu prüfen, was eine Maschine besser kann. Ihre unternehmerischen Entscheidungen werden dann auf einer soliden Plattform von zeitnahen und qualitätsbezogenen Informationen ruhen.

Finden Sie den idealen Kandidaten

Wenn es etwas gibt, worin wir wirklich gut sind, dann ist es unsere Fähigkeit, einen guten Tester oder eine gute Testerin in der Menge zu erkennen. Wir bieten an, ihnen bei der Analyse der Lebensläufe zu helfen und erfolgsversprechende Kandidaten zu identifizieren.

Wenn Sie eine paar Kandidaten für ein Vorstellungsgespräch ausgewählt haben, können unsere Berater ein Pre-Screening durchführen und alle durch eine Reihe von Übungen führen, um eine engere Auswahl für eine weitere Runde zu qualifizieren.

Wir bereiten das Screening durch direkte Gespräch mit Ihrem Team und ihren Mitarbeitern vor, um herauszufinden, was die dringendsten Bedürfnisse der Organisationen sind. Das erlaubt es uns, ein Verständnis für Ihre Unternehmenskultur und die herrschende Gruppendynamik zu entwickeln, welche die Kandidaten vorfinden würden, wenn sie bei der Bewerbung erfolgreich sind.

Wir helfen Ihnen, jemanden Besonderes zu finden.

Treten Sie ein in Ilari’s Spektakulären Testing Zirkus. Unsere Pforten sind offen für sowohl Tester als auch Entwickler. Die Löwenbändiger und Clowns heissen Sie willkommen zur Show. Nehmen Sie Platz. Die Lichter werden gedämpft. Die Bühne ist frei für Spektakel und Wunder. Geniessen Sie die Show!

Dieser Eintages-Workshop beleuchtet einige der wichtigsten Dimensionen des Software Testings. Jede Sektion beinhaltet eine kurze Einführung, gefolgt von praktischen Übungen oder Spielen. Aktive Teilnahme ist nicht zwingend aber sehr empfohlen. Wir werden folgende Themen durchspielen:

  • Was genau ist Software Testing?
    Ja, was ist es denn genau? Was ist der Wert, der unsere Arbeit als Software Tester in das Produkt bringt? Wir reflektieren über unsere Tätigkeit und was genau unser “Produkt” ist. Es gibt dazu ein Spiel in sechs Akten.
  • Testing Missionen
    Die Teilnehmer werden etwas testen und dabei herausfinden, wie wichtig es ist, die Mission genau zu klären. Natürlich sind ein paar Fallen eingebaut. Ein wichtiges Instrument des Software Testers ist “Fragen stellen”.
  • Checking & Testing
    Es ist ein äusserst wichtiges semantisches Instrument, bei unserer Arbeit zwischen Testen und Checken zu unterscheiden. Wir ergründen die Tiefen und diskutieren über Automatisierung, nicht-technisches Testing und welche Unterscheidung sinnvoll sind.
  • “Safety Language”
    Die Worte, die wir wählen, beeinflussen unser Denken. Indem wir Aussagen mit Vorsicht machen und uns immer wieder vergewissern, was wir wissen und was wir vermuten, erschliesst sich uns das Testobjekt in grösserer Tiefe. Wir benützen dazu “Safety Language”. Dieses Modul beinhaltet ein kurzes Spiel und eine Evaluierung davon.
  • Modellieren
    Um die Software zu verstehen, anerbietet es sich, darüber ein Modell aufzustellen. Auch hier wird es wieder ein unterhaltsames Spiel geben, bei welchem die Teilnehmer herausfinden, wie effektives Modelling funktioniert.
  • Beobachten
    Etwas zu beobachten hat physiologische und psychologische Komponenten. Wie bringt man sich dazu, das Relevante zu beobachten? Dieses Modul beinhaltet eine Einführung in Aufmerksamkeit und in die Regeln, mit welchen unser Gehirn Daten verarbeitet. Natürlich gibt es auch hier eine unterhaltsame Komponente.
  • Fokusieren/Defokusieren und die Generierung von Testideen
    Was tun, wenn man stecken bleibt? Nicht mehr weiter weiss mit der Arbeit? Welche Möglichkeiten bestehen, damit man weiter testen kann. Eine Einführung in diverse Heuristiken, die helfen können, das Testing effektiver zu gestalten.

Es wird Rätsel und Gelächter geben und eine auffällige Abwesenheit von Powerpoint Folien. Also, treten Sie ein und lassen Sie sich unterhalten (Sie werden vermutlich sogar etwas Brauchbares lernen)

 

Wir haben fünf Sinne, mit denen wir unsere Umgebung beobachten können. Tasten, Schmecken, Riechen, Hören und Sehen. Diese fünf Sinne sind die Eingangspforten in unser Hirn. Weil die Menge der auf uns auftreffenden Information zu gross ist, haben wir starke Filter installiert. Manchmal verpassen wir dadurch das Offensichtliche. Nun, wie können Sie ihre Beobachtungsgabe verbessern? Was heisst es, ein guter Beobachter zu sein? Können Sie diese Fähigkeit trainieren?

Sobald Sie eine relevante Beobachtung gemacht haben, möchten Sie diese vielleicht beschreiben. Das geschieht üblicherweise mündlich oder schriftlich. Da natürliche Sprache anfällig ist für Fehler und Missdeutungen, muss man da grosse Vorsicht walten lassen. Nun, wie können Sie sich bei Ihren Beschreibungen verbessern? Was ist eine gute Beschreibung? Können Sie das trainieren?

Da beides, Beobachtung und Beschreibung, integrale Bestandteile von fast jeder Testing Aktivität sind, haben Sie hier die Gelegenheit, sich in diese wichtigen Aspekte des Software Testings zu vertiefen. Für Software Tester gibt es eine breite Palette von Fähigkeiten, die Sie beherrschen müssen, um Ihren Job gut zu machen. Das Studium von theoretischen Modellen und praktischen Anwendungen können Ihnen helfen, um besser zu werden.

Dieser Halbtages-Workshop wird eine Mischung von theoretischer Einführung  und praktischen Übungen in den verschiedenen Domänen sein. Wir werden die Psychologie der Aufmerksamkeit behandeln, uns über linguistische Modelle unterhalten und gemeinsam Übungen durchführen. Ich plane auch, Peer Reviews über die Übungen durchzuführen und es wird eine lebhafte Diskussion unter den Teilnehmern geben.

 

Stellen Sie sich vor, Ihr Team sitzt nicht gemütlich zusammen im gleichen Raum oder Gebäude, sondern verteilt über verschiedene Länder. Wie halten Sie die Kommunikation aufrecht? Wie gehen Sie mit einer solchen Situation um als Manager? Wie stellen Sie sicher, dass wichtige Information an die richtigen Leute fliesst?

Ilari Henrik Aegerter war in der Vergangenheit der Manager von Productivity & Test Engineering beim weltweit grössten Marktplatz eBay und hatte dort ein Team, welches verteilt war auf Zürich, Berlin, Paris, London und Moskau. Dieser Workshop ist eine Verbindung von einem Erfahrungsreport über die Schwierigkeiten und auch eine “Experiential Session” über die Kommunikation mit Einschränkungen.

Die Teilnehmer werden eine kurze Übersicht über die Erfahrungen von Ilari bekommen und dann in eine Simulation gebracht, in der sie in einem Mini-Projekt kollaborieren müssen, um es erfolgreich durchzuführen. Natürlich wird es Störungen geben, welche das Unterfangen noch etwas schwieriger machen werden.

 

Körper und Geist sind unseparierbare Einheiten und die alten Griechen wussten dies bereits. Diese Session startet mit einer Einführung in die Peripatetische Schule des Denkens. Die Teilnehmer werden eine Einsicht erlangen, warum körperliche Bewegung und Denken gegenseitig Unterstützende Tätigkeiten sind.

Dann gehen wir auf einen Spaziergang.

Wir werden gemütlich zu Fuss gehen und sehen, wohin uns unser Weg führt. Die ganze Session wird draussen stattfinden, und wir spazieren in einer gemütlichen Geschwindigkeit draussen in der Natur. Es wird sowohl eine Übung in Lösungsfindung sein, als auch eine “Experiential Session”. Nicht viel ist bekannt darüber, wohin uns diese Session führt. Vielleicht treffen sich die alten Griechen auch mit 21. Jahrhundert Geekery und es könnte eine Aufzeichnung über Teile der Session geben.

Kommen Sie ausgestattet mit ihren Testing Problemen, Gedanken und Rätseln und alle Teilnehmer werden fröhlich einstimmen in gemeinsames Lösungsfinden. Sie werde nach dieser unvergesslichen Session sowohl glücklicher als auch weiser sein.

Abstract

This 3-day couse is aimed at providing the students with basic knowledge and experience with planning and performing ET (Exploratory Testing), organizing the work and fitting the test results to the surrounding context. It starts from the context and points to different tools such as heuristics, note taking and SBTM/MTBS (Session-Based Test Management / Managing Testing Based on Sessions), to create effective and valuable testing, based on skill, thought and risks.

The course is highly interactive and packed with exercises that are always debriefed and analyzed to help students internalize their newly learned skills and tools.

The course can be extended with coaching activities to help the students incorporate ET in their work.

Course Objectives

The course covers the principles of CDT (Context-Driven Testing), the discipline of ET (Exploratory Testing), SBTM (Session-based Test Management) for managing the testing as well as Test Strategizing, Planning and Reporting based on Heuristics, Opportunities and Risks. The course relates everything we do to how it works within an Agile context, points to different Tools and Methods that may be of use along the way, and includes a perspective on how testing is fused with different needs (like ‘Cover all the requirements’, ‘What to do with the bugs’ and the impossibility of testing everything and getting effective testing done in the short time that is available).

Participants will gain basic knowledge and experience with planning and performing ET (Exploratory Testing), organizing the work and fitting the test results to the surrounding context

Who will benefit?

This course is most appropriate for Testers, Test Engineers, Test Leads, Test Consultants and Test Managers.

Details

Delegates are required to bring their own Laptop PC’s (not MAC or iPad’s), since a lot of the training is based on real hands-on exercises run on PC).

Duration: 3 days

Abstract

Agile development methodologies have quickly gained ground around the world and are today one of the more prevalent models for software development. For testers, the transition from traditional development models can be difficult or even frightening. It doesn’t have to be though.

In this 2-day course, you get to do a deep-dive into the what the principles of agile development means for testers and how you can transform your work into becoming both more efficient and effective.

Most parts of the course will contain practical exercises that will allow participants to not only gain theoretical knowledge, but also put it into practice right away, and thus gain a deeper understanding of the different topics.

Course Objectives

We’ll be discussing the tester’s role in agile teams and how to best create an agile test strategy. Participants will gain a better understanding of what exploratory testing can offer as well as knowledge of different sorts of heuristic tools and checklists that are absolutely essential for an agile tester.

Furthermore, we will go through the test management frameworks Session-based Test Management and Thread-based Test Management and discuss how they can be applied to gain traceability and help build a strong foundation for test reporting in an agile setting.

The course also contains sections dedicated to the role of test reporting, test automation, and different test tools that can help simplify your work as an agile tester.

Who will benefit?

Anybody working with testing in an agile setting, as well as Scrum Master and managers who need a deeper understanding for the role testing plays in an agile team or organization.

Abstract

Software projects today are often large and complex. This requires a test organization which is able to work with requirements and risks in a structured way. Structured testing includes clear goals, strategies and coverage. One important tool in structured testing is to use test design techniques. Test design techniques make it possible to create test cases with better precision, a more specific coverage and better prioritization.

Many testers know about test design theories, but for some reason, an aware usage of test design techniques is not very common in many test organizations.

During two days, the most common black box test design techniques will be explained in theory and with examples. Several exercises will help the students to understand how and when to apply the different techniques, like Equivalence Partitioning, Boundary Value Analysis, State-Transition testing, Decision-tables, Use-case testing and Pairwise testing.

This workshop can be extended with coaching if needed.

After the workshops, the real challenge is to actually apply the new skills in the everyday work. A period of coaching within the “real” work could be very beneficial, especially for less experienced testers. The coaching could be done with one tester at a time, or with smaller groups of testers. The coach can help with requirement analysis, test case reviews and creation, etc. All with a focus on black box test design techniques.

Course Objectives

To get the tester acquainted with test design techniques usable in daily work.

Who will benefit?

Testers, Test developers

Abstract

Exploratory Testing (ET) is an approach to software testing that is concisely described as simultaneous learning, test design and test execution. Cem Kaner, who coined the term in 1983, now defines exploratory testing as “a style of software testing that emphasizes the personal freedom and responsibility of the individual tester to continually optimize the quality of his/her work by treating test-related learning, test design, test execution, and test result interpretation as mutually supportive activities that run in parallel throughout the project.” That definition also says something about why Exploratory Testing is such a powerful approach, once mastered. Some prominent experts in the field have even gone so far as to equate the word “testing” with Exploratory Testing, while referring to test case-driven, scripted testing as “checking”.

Course objectives

Introducing Exploratory Testing and showing its powers as a structured way of challenging a product in order to learn about it, and introducing SBTM as a systematic approach to keeping the direction and provide accountability of the testing done.

Who will benefit?

Testers, test managers, project managers, developers, architects

Teacher/Coach: Carsten Feilberg or Henrik Andersson

Abstract

Session-Based Test Management is a way to make the intangibles of Exploratory Testing more tangible. It was specifically developed as a framework to organize testing so as to optimize and stay focused on the more important parts, while keeping up with the flexibility and powerful adaptation to change that Exploratory Testing provides. It means we have a set of expectations for what kind of work will be done and how it will be reported. As in a recording studio, this work is done in “sessions.” Sessions range typically from 45 minutes to several hours, depending on the charter – or “mission statement”, which the tester will focus on – for that time. Learning to describe, select and prioritize charters, debriefing the vital information and constantly meet the needs of the stakeholders is fun, giving and also challenging, especially in fast-moving projects with tight schedules.

Course objectives

To introduce and help the students set up SBTM as their primary tool for directing test activities. The course involves real problem solving related to introducing SBTM in an organisation and gives the students various tools and insights that helps them solving these problems.

Who will benefit?

Test managers, testers (Knowledge of exploratory testing (ET) is recommended)

Abstract

This workshop mixes practical exercises and theory briefings with the participants’ own learning goals. The students will experience what participating in an actual Scrum project can be like. We will have experiental designed exercises covering all roles, artifacts and ceremonies in Scrum but more important we focus on bringing understanding to the social science aspects of Agile. This to emphasize the importance of good communication and teamwork.

The last day focuses entirely on applying the knowledge participants have gained into the context of a project. This day is about making Scrum work for you, in your circumstances. It is an advantage (but not necessary) if there is a certain amount of time (e.g. 1 week) between the first two workshop days and the third. This to allow the participants the possibility of receiving knowledge, translating it into practice and being able to bring fresh problems and examples to the last day of the workshop.

Course objectives

The goal of this workshop is that you as a participant will get a basic understanding of how and why Scrum works, and gain an insight into how to apply this in practice.

Who will benefit?

Managers, developers, testers

Carsten Feilberg

I might well be the test manager you are looking for.

I am seeking to help organisations to find better ways to do and use testing of the software they deal with, based on my deep technical knowledge combined with years of continuous study of testing as a craft. I practice testing myself still from time to time, and is quite enjoying it – but not when I am working as a manager. Well, you don’t ask your project manager to type in code either, do you? And I don’t have time for it then, because it takes a lot to spark peoples interest and motivation using coaching, teaching and encouragement – and keeping everyone on the track.

Ultimately I find testing to be about the ability to inform you about the product we are working on. In order to do so, all testers need to grow their knowledge about the product – and only learning can do that. In order to learn, we ask questions, explore, study and investigate. That is testing.

It’s not our job to manage test cases based on their status. That is checking, confirming, but not learning. It is our job to see what no one else have seen, to find what others missed and tell about it clearly and openly. And that is hard, but also fun and rewarding. When I see your smile because we have helped you get a confident and clear insight into the product we build, I know we are on the right track.

Ilari Henrik Aegerter

Mein Studium hat mich von Allgemeiner Linguistik und Soziologie zu Software Engineering und Software Testing geführt. Da mich der Beruf fasziniert hat, habe ich kontinuierlich an meinen Fähigkeiten gearbeitet. Context-driven zu sein ist eine natürliche Schlussfolgerung daraus und ich bin überzeugt, dass Software Testing nicht einfach eine klerikale Arbeit ist, sondern ein Beruf, der ein hohes Mass von Fertigkeiten bedarf.

Ich habe 10+ Jahre Erfahrung in Gebieten wie Medizinalsoftware bei Phonak AG und E-Commerce bei eBay. Zur Zeit bin ich der Managing Director von House of Test GmbH und ich glaube, es gibt noch viel zu tun, um hoch-qualitatives Software Testing zu fördern.

Im Jahr 2013 habe ich die International Society for Software Testing (ISST) mitbegründet, welche sich dafür einsetzt, gesunden Menschenverstand zurück ins Software Testing zu bringen. 2015 wurde ich in den Vorstand der Association for Software Testing (AST) gewählt, wo ich die Rolle des VP of Marketing einnehme.

Da ich gerne spreche, präsentiere ich oft an internationalen Software Testing Konferenzen, und ich bin auch oft eingeladen, an Firmenanlässen zu sprechen. Von Zeit zu Zeit führe ich Software Testing Workshops durch, was ich sehr geniesse.

Bestandteil von Software Testing zu sein fühlt sich für mich nicht wie Arbeit an, und es macht mir sehr viel Spass, jeden Tag das zu machen was ich liebe.

In meiner privaten Zeit lese ich viele Bücher und Comics, verbringe Zeit mit meiner Familie, teste die Möglichkeiten dieser Welt mit meinen Kindern und teste gutes Essen in Restaurants mit meiner Frau. Ich glaube daran, dass Menschen generell gut sind und dass es mehr als genug hat für alle. Das führt dazu, dass ich sehr häufig gut gelaunt bin.

Henrik Andersson

House of Test is my fuel, it is the platform to make ideas happen and it is our contribution to develop testing further. I co-founded this company to enable testers to live out their passion for testing in order to become the best skilled testers ever.

I believe that we grow and become better by sharing knowledge and learn from others. I do this through the context driven testing community where I am a well know and respected face and voice.

I’m co-founder of the world renowned Let´s Test conference with the purpose to provide a home and learning ground for our community.

Locally I’m founder and host of ConTest at FooCafe in Malmö where we share experiences and learn from each other to raise awareness of and to advance Context Driven Testing.

Internationally  I co-founded ISST (International Society for Software Testing). Our mission is to put common sense back into testing.

As you can see this not only my job, this is my life and I love it.

Johan Jonasson

Testing is a highly cerebral activity that breaks down if it’s limited by rigid processes, trapped in dense and senseless documentation or controlled by spreadsheet toting metric jockeys. Excellent testing requires skilled, passionate professionals who lets their work be guided by the information revealed by testing, rather than forced by a plan that became obsolete at first contact with the software. When I co-founded House of Test back in 2008, that was the kind of testing I wanted to learn more about, and today I can confidently call myself a leading expert in the field.

I’m a long-time member of the context-driven community of testers, where my work with the Let’s Test conferences, as one if the originators, is one of the contributions I’m most proud of today. I’m also one of the founding members and president of the International Society for Software Testing, which is a world-wide association of testers who work together to develop and promote approaches to software testing that emphasizes value and the role that skilled testers play in its delivery, as well as openly oppose and criticize practices that are wasteful or that seek to dehumanize testing

On the local level, I have helped create the EAST association for software testers, which is a local peer group centered around the Linköping region in Sweden, that meet up once a month to share experiences and help develop each other’s testing skills.

And I’m just getting started.

Georg Lysen

In co-founding House of Test, I saw an opportunity for freedom; a freedom from dictated models and conformative thinking, a freedom to broaden my horizons and grow as a tester. Most of all, it’s a freedom to do a damn good job and it’s a freedom I take very seriously.

In my more than 15 years of working with IT, I have come across the good, the bad and the ugly within software development, all of which helped me build a broad base to stand on and approach any new situation with confidence and skill. It has also given me a great testing toolbox to choose and select from based on the unique context of any new project. Quality, as much as I love it, is not a one-man show and I aim to get everyone to feel engaged in the quality of the product by spreading my enthusiasm, sharing valuable information and having my bug reports be something even the developers look forward to receiving.

Louise Perold

Testing is not just a career to me, it is a massive part of who I am. I have been blessed to come across people who have inspired me and taught me and I believe I have been that person to others over the years. The learning never stops though, and I continue to practice the craft and apply learnings from other disciplines back into software testing.

I am at my happiest when I see a team able to do their best testing work and add valuable information into the system. One way I like to do this is to be part of the team. Mentoring and coaching the team from an external viewpoint is also something I am comfortable with. I realise that much of the work we do is heavily influenced by the greater system we are in. I have many years experience of making these things visible and coming up with practical ideas to maximize the value derived from the testing efforts.

Building the craft and community of testing in South Africa is also a passion of mine. To this end, I am the co-organiser of Let’s Test South Africa and the founder and co-organiser of the Joburg Software Testers Meetup. I am also one of the founding members of ISST – the International Society for Software Testing.

I enjoy speaking at conferences and have spoken at Let’s Test in Sweden, Copenhagen Context and CAST in North America and I was the co-program chair for CAST 2013.

As Director and Consultant at House of Test South Africa, I am hoping to continue working with awesome people, partnering with friends whom I respect and working my butt off to promote $hit HoT testing.

Lars Sjödahl

I’m a technically curious tester with a burning interest in anything connecting software with the physical world, from small sensors to large moving constructions. With a background in engineering physics where I cleaned house with all courses at the department of electrical measurements, I’ve spent 13 years in research and development, mainly testing embedded software. With the unusual combination of both being at home in the borderland between software and hardware, and being an experienced context-driven tester, I’m the perfect choice for testing anything that interacts with the physical world. Being an evangelist for quick-to-develop, easy-to-change equipment such as Arduino, I’m used to helping testers take their tool-making to the next level, crafting the right tools for their own context, while tirelessly coming up with more questions to find ways to test, analyse and understand a product’s capabilities and limitations.

In my spare time I’m often improving my self-built 3D-printer, building and programming robots and hydroponic systems or building high powered rockets, which I’ve attained international certification to launch. I also cultivate an interest in genre films.

Martin Nilsson

I’m a kick ass tester with an incredibly wide spectrum of skills; from programming microprocessors to developing Continuous Integrations strategies for development organizations. My unusual combination of technical expertise and understanding of systems and organizations has made me a favourite to throw into highly complex situations on short notice.
Quote from my last customer for whom I in six months went from a System Tester to the Test Coordinator of a project with a hundred testers: “We didn’t believe your CV. We were wrong”. Not only do I perform my work excellently, I also spread my passion of Test to my colleagues, enabling their growth as well in their trade.

My drive comes from a curiosity of technology and people and I leverage this heavily in my passion for test. I’m able to outpace my competition by having my work as a hobby and therefore I’m constantly evolving my abilities in my craft.

Linda Hedin Liljegren

Since I was a little kid I have loved mathematics and people. The things I do at work is what I always liked to do and that is to meet people, do the financials and much more.

My strong qualities are being used at House of Test when I meet all our great consultants or doing the economic. The favorite part for me is to see the person behind the awesome tester. That really makes my day.

Before I started at House of Test, I worked as an accountant consultant at a company in Malmoe. I was only there for a year but I learnt a lot. Before that, I worked in Denmark for eight years at a big worldwide company, my responsibilities at the company was economics. That experience is something I will use at House of Test to make it even greater than it is.

When I´m not at work, I love to spend time with my family (I have five kids and a wonderful husband), take a long run, sew clothes or read an enjoyable book. I´m just like an old lady =)

Cindy Carless

Software testing has allowed me to bring all my diverse talents, experiences and passion for life-long learning together. 

One of my talents is connecting with people, building trust quickly and creating a space where people feel safe to be vulnerable, experiment with new ideas and approaches and share their experiences openly. Another talent is that I can share my knowledge because I have invested in understanding things deeply and want to use my knowledge from over 30 years of professional learning to contribute to people and the things I give my attention to. 

My passion has emerged as CDT coaching based on a belief in people’s inner resourcefulness and my enthusiasm to use learnings and reflection in everything I do.

I believe that people have the ability to make choices that will allow them to make the most of their lives. Sometimes circumstances and experiences create blocks and need a fresh perspective to create the energy to breakthrough them and move forward/shift. 

Success for me in coaching is a person who has a new way of thinking and has an appetite for change and a revitalised energy for life.  Someone who can use that to identify their many options and make choices that serve them.  A person posing questions and investing time in and following through on what works for them. 

I am told that my unique approach, acute intuition for areas of improvement and spotting potential problems and whole hearted commitment to living with integrity and congruence are valuable skills. Colleagues can rely on me for consistent hard work, attention to detail and excellent communication skills. Customers and employers recognize my contribution to teams, getting the job done and fitting in with a positive attitude and engaging smile. 

Joining House of Test Denmark is a dream come true for me. It gives me the opportunity to be a software tester and coach with passion and purpose in everything I do. Being part of House of Test is an opportunity to be part of a team who thinks differently, is willing to push the limits and to punk my coaching. 

Andreas Cederholm

Testing is not just my livelihood, it is part of my identity. In order to constantly learn and improve to become a superhero tester I read and write test related blogs and books, presentations, discuss testing at test conferences or local test meet-ups and am an active part of the test community. I love to share my knowledge and passion for testing, and it shows in my work.

I have worked with world class test automation, creating automated checks and creating test framework, heavily based on requirements but have also worked with Session Based testing where information for test ideas were taken from multiple sources.

My experiences have taught me many important lessons and that above all, Context matters.

Johanna Forsberg

I am an awesome tester that is burning for what I do and not even a firefighter can put that fire out!

I started my career at The Incubator program by House of Test. In addition to working full time as a consultant I was additionally studying Test over ten hours each week for two years. I loved that challenge because I love to learn and grow increasingly better in my trade. During the two years in the Incubator program I have gone from a junior tester to a Test Lead with teams in multiple countries.

After the incredible time as an Incubator I joined the wonderful team at House of Test. Here I get inspired to become even better, to think more and to learn even more.

Elvir Arslanovic

In software development world, as testers, we often hear that we have a certain mindset when it comes to testing. I have often thought about what that means to me.

Testing is a challenge and a skill that anybody with the right will and an open mind can learn to master. For me any new testing challenge is a chance to learn something new and to apply my past knowledge and skills, given the right context, to provide useful information and find that critical bug that might slip through, in other words provide right kind of value to the stakeholders. My urge to learn about new technologies, test techniques and master new tools is what helps me to become a better tester.

I have been a part agile teams where I had the opportunity to work with world class test automation, creating automated checks, developing and maintaining test frameworks. This experience has taught that that to get the greatest value out of testing, there has to be a right balance between real testing that is done by people and automated checks, where these two complement each other to build a solid testing foundation.

Bahaderjon Ahunov

I am an ambitious and driven left & right brain thinker with strong analytic skills and a passion for solving complex problems with no excuse attitude. I enjoy learning new things and  I’m able to identify and appreciate hundreds of different ways that small detail can be crashed in. I’m proud to say that I’m different and as a matter of fact testing requires one to be different beyond the formalities to catch that tremendous failure before reaching the end users and that is what impacts the success of any product.

In the long run testing is about giving the right feedback to the stakeholders right? Yes, but if that feedback isn’t a pragmatic one then the test activity wasn’t effective in its approach either.

Testing is about recognizing the uniqueness of a thing and exploring it in the light of that uniqueness.
That’s what makes the real difference.
That’s where I make a difference.

Maria Kedemo

I see things. I see things that are different. I see different perspectives. I see how things are connected from the smallest detail to the larger picture. My passion radiates when I get to work with my holistic approach to software testing. I’m at my best when I can help an individual, a team or company to improve their testing skills, approach to testing and to take pride in what they do. By coaching others I also learn and improve my own skills; something that is extremely important to me.

I have a vast experience within software development where my main focus has been software testing and test management. What brings all the different roles and things I’ve done together is my drive to make things happen. It doesn’t matter whether it is about searching for information about the product I am testing or finding the right person to hire for my team.

Sharing my knowledge and discussing software testing related topics is something I love to do. So if you need some perspective on your software testing, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Ben Kelly

For me, the various software development disciplines are complimentary and they are more effective when each discipline understands the fundamentals of the others. Testers especially need to have many strings to their bow as they are also an information conduit, seeking information and getting it to people who can benefit from it.

My view of testing and software development is heavily influenced by my martial arts background. I hold a 5th Dan in kendo and represented Australia several times at the world kendo championships. Just as with kendo, or anything worth mastering, software testing requires consistent and deliberate practice with the intent to improve.

Software testing has been a huge part of my life for more than fifteen years now. I’ve built and led teams in Australia, Japan and the United Kingdom at companies ranging from small start-ups to enterprise level multinational corporations, including heading up software testing for the European Product Development department at eBay. I’m now the managing director of House of Test UK.

In addition to my company duties, I like to run workshops and speak at conferences around the world. There are some really interesting developments in the software testing industry. There’s a critical mass of skilled practitioners connecting with one another to share their experience and skills and I’m excited to be a part of it.

Göran Bakken

I’m an experienced and highly devoted tester who is very appreciated by customers. They value my consistent delivery of high quality results and my contribution of enthusiasm and commitment which spreads to the whole team. During my many different assignment I’ve become an expert in quickly identifying and getting deep knowledge of the critical parts of new systems . I’m known for having a relentless drive to improve everything I see and touch. I’m also constantly trying to improve myself as a tester by sharpening my technical skills but also to further develop my mental abilities. To improve I read books, blogs, attends conferences and seminars. I also take self studying courses and spend time on own projects. I have excellent communication skills and have on several occasions held seminars for customers on tools and test methodology. I take great pride in being an excellent tester, but even more in helping myself and others improve as testers every day.

Nicola Owen

I’m passionate about software testing. I believe, to be an effective tester you need to be a strong communicator – and if the person you’re talking to isn’t on the same page: Try again. Use diagrams; body language; change of wording.

As a tester I’m constantly looking for ways to grow and learn; whether that be through taking courses, reading blogs or bouncing ideas off people I look up to in the field. I also grow and learn by keeping a testing blog. It helps me document my learning journey and see how my thought processes have changed over time. 

I’m a strong advocate for Context Driven Testing as it doesn’t believe in a “one size fits all approach” to testing. There’s no such thing as best practices because the context between different projects can differ greatly.

When I’m not at work, you’ll probably find me cooking, baking or watching stand-up comedy. I also love learning foreign languages – it’s a great way to experience a new culture. 

Natalia Wall

I believe that critical thinking is one of the most important characteristics a person needs to possess in order to become a skilled tester. These skills enable me to identify weaknesses and make me ask questions like “what if” and “why”. Those questions often lead to insights in early iterations that help eliminate issues which otherwise might have been introduced to the end user.

In my previous positions, I have been appreciated for having an enquiring mind as well as for being organised and highly dedicated to the projects. I set high standards for quality and it is important to me that the things we do add value. After all, my goal is to help you reach your goal!

I am known for having great communication skills and for being a social tester. Fortunately, I am also a coffee nerd which often comes in very handy when I need to discuss issues with developers. A fresh cup of coffee will usually make them listen, talk or help me.

I am not afraid of taking initiatives that can improve the overall performance nor am I afraid of taking on new challenges. I have extensive experience of software testing, both from working in many different roles (test lead, test laboratory manager and test engineer) and in different domains (embedded software for telecom, web apps and mobile apps). This enables me to quickly adjust to the context.

Apart from being an awesome tester and coffee nerd I also enjoy growing plants in my garden, photography, fine dining or training karate. Last but not least I love spending as much time as possible with my kids.

Paschalis Bimpisidis

I am a passionate and enthusiastic individual who has started his journey in the software testing world some years ago. In this journey I have gained experience from testing big e-commerce platforms, cloud systems and many more services. During those assignments I had the chance to prove my skills and at the same time become better at it.

I am detail-oriented, with great communication skills and I can be a valuable asset to every company who takes testing seriously. In order to keep this journey going, I always strive to learn from the best and constantly improve and that’s one of the many reasons I joined the team at House of Test.

Simon Berner

I started my career in IT as a system engineer/administrator and then later as a developer. I finally stumbled over testing and it stuck with me. I love the burnt smell of deep thinking while testing and to forget the rest of the world while I’m absorbed with awesome testing. I’m very enthusiastic about software testing – especially for those things I don’t know yet. I’m experienced in story testing, performance testing and mobile testing. Besides that, I have also deep knowledge in requirements engineering and agile project- and application management, I’m good at talking to customers and I’m a very good listener and tacit observer. The restlessness drives me, I’m always open to learn something new and like a chameleon I’m able to fit me into every new challenge and situation.

For me House of Test is like being among rock stars. It is the ultimate place to grow, learn, congress, communicate and debate. It’s full of responsibility, freedom, passion and satisfaction, to evolve as human beings and testers. I give all the power I’ve got for moving us forward and getting a bit wiser each day.

Katrine Kavli

I am full of passion. Not only for testing, but for a myriad of interests and hobbies. I want to know everything in the world, and if something catches my interest, I use every waking hour on gathering information on it. That’s why I not only know my way around testing, I also excel at  scripting, developing websites, making graphic design and implementing usability in everything I do. What does users and customers think of when they use your product? I can tell you. For years I’ve been studying how humans and the digital realm interact in so many different areas. And if I’m not familiar with a subject or a program, you can damn well rely on that I’ll learn all about it in no time. In short, I’m a digital octopus.

I believe in smiles, respect and a positive attitude to people around me and my tasks. I’m loyal and very helpful, but not the least afraid to question authority or call bullshit on established routines and processes. I’m not in this job make the most money in the shortest amount of time, to sell expensive and/or needless solutions, to show off my fancy blue shirts, or to compete with my testing colleagues on assignments. I don’t do drama and politics. I’m in this job to help you find weaknesses in software that you never even knew existed, and to learn as much as humanly possible.

Diana Flores

My motto is do it better. As testers we have the opportunity to find improvements. We have both the overview, by being involved in different phases, and also the behind the scenes look, by being involved in finding root causes.

My motivation in choosing a career in IT was to solve problems, learn about new ideas and share the better practices.

I started university in Budapest for Informatics-Mathematics, and did English-language IT-teacher training as well, which matched my desire to combine a human side to the rational subjects. I continued with a thesis and case study on socio-technical congruence, when I moved to Amsterdam for a Computer Science MSc.

My first work experience, software configuration manager, thought me how important communication is, being the connection point of developers, testers and project managers, which I kept in mind when I became a tester.

I enjoyed especially the agile projects, as it gives you the most room to change towards efficiency.

I joined HoT to be among the motivated people who feel that testing is not just a job, it is our profession, so I feel at home here.

Zeljko Markovic

Ich begann als Programmierer und entwickelte mich bald zu einem Test Engineer. Qualität und Testen bedeutet mir sehr viel. Im Jahr 2009 zog ich von Deutschland in die Schweiz. Ich bin sehr vertraut mit funktionaler Testautomatisierung und habe ausserdem Erfahrungen mit „session-based exploratory testing“, Test Design, Test Management und agilen Vorgehensmodellen.

Durch meine Erfahrung in internationalen Teams habe ich vielfältige Fähigkeiten erworben und gelernt, mit vielen verschiedenen Arten von Menschen zu arbeiten. Ich bin ein gewissenhafter Mensch, der intuitiv, strategisch und analytisch denkt und auf Details und die Bedürfnisse der Benutzer achtet. Ausserdem bin ich flexibel, begreife schnell und lerne gerne von anderen. Ich habe auch viele Ideen und bin enthusiastisch. Und ich kann Probleme erkennen, noch bevor sie sich auf die Produktion auswirken.

Aus meiner Sicht funktioniert das Testen sehr gut, wenn es auf die spezifischen Bedürfnisse in einem Kontext zugeschnitten ist. Ich identifiziere Bereiche mit hohem Potential am Anfang meiner Arbeit. Ein Kontext kann sich über die Zeit hinweg ändern, daher prüfe ich die Situation regelmässig und passe mich an. Wer einen Fehler gemacht hat und ihn nicht korrigiert, begeht einen zweiten (Konfuzius).

Ständig halte ich mich auf dem laufenden mit neuen Trends bei Testing, Programmierung, Technologien und Software-Entwicklungsmethoden und diskutiere und teile mein Wissen. Ich bin leidenschaftlich, ein Macher, ethisch, freundlich aber bestimmt, ein guter Zuhörer, selbstkritisch und ehrlich. Ich schätze sinnvolle Beziehungen, Herausforderungen, neue Wege zu erkunden, veraltete und unflexible Prozesse zu verbesseren, Innovationen voranzubringen und Erfolgserlebnisse zu haben.

Ich suche nach einer Firma mit interessanten Produkten, einer modernen Softwareentwicklungs-Kultur und Beziehungen auf Augenhöhe, wo ich all das oben genannte tun kann und mehr, einer Organisation, die mich herausfordern wird und wo ich etwas bewirken kann.

Alexandre Bauduin

Quality is not a mandate: It is my lifestyle. I have been testing in various fields like electronic boards, smart cards, airborne equipment, TV broadcasting systems, warehousing and other industries , software or equipment that have to work  once or 24-7 for millions of end users.

Don’t be surprised if during a test campaign you see me looking at an oscilloscope and an electronic schematic, a vernier caliper and a mechanical drawing, stepping into assembly code, recompiling a Nux kernel, debating about requirement or test-stalling a Boeing 777!

So many missions in many places, countries with only one goal in mind: Provide the best test services to my customers.

Testing  for me could be a piece of jazz music: A mix of cultures, techniques, non conventional beats and I love to compare testing activity to jamming sessions.  But it could also be a  piece of classical music with strict rules.

I feel home at House of Test because in any case what is the most important thing is THE Context.

Michal Zima

Testing is not only work for me, it is a profession and a passion. Testing for me is bringing clarity into uncertainty, bringing value for the project with the information I provide.

I jumped into testing right after my masters degree in management of computer systems. Working on various projects I started to develop passion and enthusiasm for this profession. I am constantly refining and adding to my skills through work itself, through self-study, from courses/seminars and on community events. While on projects I seek new ways to solve problems, minimize chaos, promote collaboration and build a knowledge base among people. I strive to achieve mutual trust in the form of:

“Michal tested this, there will be no surprises”

My strength lies in banking, followed by reinsurance and embedded devices.

My methods include scripts to support my testing and I am willing to use trial /error to an extent when most people give up. This helps me creating a model of the system which I then refine incrementally. At the end of the day, only the testing itself shows the best approach. You need to always be ready to change the way how you approach the problem.

When you don’t see me testing, I am probably traveling, doing sports (fitness, running, martial arts) or reading a good book.

Mélanie Jouberteix

Gleich nach meinem Abschluss in Software Engineering habe ich meine Karriere als Software Test Engineer begonnen. Ich glaube, dass man als gute Software Testerin nicht nur gründlich getestete Software liefert, sondern dass man mithilft, die Software zu verbessern, indem man schon in der Requirements-Phase involviert ist.

Ich liebe es, Probleme und Rätsel zu lösen. Meine Neugier, meine Geduld und meine Beharrlichkeit sind wertvolle Beiträge zum Erfolg in ihrer Firma. Was ich an Software Testen am meisten schätze, ist mitzuhelfen, Situationen zu verbessern. Ich möchte erst die Software herausfordern und Schwachstellen an den Tag befördern, und damit zu ermöglichen, die Software besser zu bauen.

Ich bin es gewohnt, in einem agilem Umfeld zu arbeiten. Was ich weniger schätze, sind repetitive Aufgaben. Darum versuche ich herauszufinden, wie Automatisierung zum Erfolg des Projekts ideal eingesetzt werden kann. Ich bin eine passionierte Sofware Testering und ich teile meine Passion für Qualität mit allen, die im Projekt involviert sind.

Edvard Piper

Problems originate from Latin and built up in two words “pro” and “blem” means before the solution. On this basis I work, there are no problems only solutions. I’m a relationship person, I am driven to develop relationships both professionally and privately. In my career, I have worked in the government sector and also the latter primarily in the IT industry. My goal is that a customer will see us as a business partner that develops solutions and not as a supplier and order receiver.

Anlässe

Wenn wir behaupten, dass wir Wissensaustausch fördern, dann reden wir nicht nur darüber, sondern machen es auch. Es ist unsere Leidenschaft, über unsere Erfahrungen zu sprechen und anderen die Gelegenheit zu geben, das gleiche zu tun. Software Testing ist noch ein junger Beruf, und der Weg zur Reife geht über Innovation, Diskussionen und Debatten und nicht über Normen und proprietäre Methoden. Ideen, die wir entwickeln, teilen wir auch gerne, denn durch das Teilen werden sie stärker. Wenn Sie uns zu einem Gespräch treffen möchten, dann finden Sie uns hier.

1-3 March 2017 – Public Rapid Software Testing Class (Michael Bolton/James Bach)
Mrz 1 – Mrz 3 ganztägig
This is the second edition of the 3-day Rapid Software Testing Class with James Bach & Michael Bolton. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity because although both James and Michael teach the RST class individually, they rarely do it together. This will be a very special and highly dynamic class.

Here are the event details
Dates: Wednesday, 1 March to Friday, 3 March 2017 (3 days, 09:00 to 17:00)
Costs per participant: CHF 2’400 (includes 3-day class, coffee breaks and lunches, excl. VAT)

When someone tosses you a program and says “you have one hour to test this” can you do it? Are you confident in your work? Can you explain what you did and why?

This unique 3-day course introduces you to Rapid Software Testing, the skill of testing any software, any time, under any conditions, such that your work stands up to scrutiny. Based on the ideas of James Bach, Michael Bolton, and Cem Kaner, with substantial contributions by other members of the Context-Driven School of software testing, this is the closest thing in the business to a martial art of software testing. Because we emphasize exercises, it is challenging for experienced testers, but works for new testers, too. This course provides hands-on demonstrations and drills as well as portable heuristics that help you create tests quickly.
