Exploratory Testing in Practice – DFW, SF, and Chicago

Mike Kelly and I delivered our two-day practicum, “Exploratory Testing in Practice” at Mobius Labs in Indianapolis a few weeks ago. I haven’t posted about it since then, but I had a good excuse – the birth of my son Jake.

The feedback we received on the course was really positive. The 50/50 mix of classroom style learning and testing exercises against production applications seemed to work really well. Many of the participants wished it had been a three day course, and given the chance to reflect on the course a little I have come to agree with them.

Expanding the course to three days will give us more time to get specific with oracles and heuristics, plus we’ll have time to introduce different approaches to managing charters. I think adding another day will really enrich the experience for attendees.

I’m planning to present this course a few more times this year in different cities throughout the US. These events will follow the three-day format recommended by our attendees of our pilot course. The first class will be held in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area from July 15-17. Subsequent classes will be scheduled for San Francisco and Chicago in August and September.

Registration for the DFW course will open on May 1. If you are interested in this or any of the other training events, please send an email to dave at techdarkside with “ETP” as the subject and I’ll send you an email update when more information is available.

I am also happy to bring this course on-site to your location. For details about pricing and scheduling, send me an email with your contact information and we can discuss your needs.
