Rapid Software Testing Explored AND RST Focused: Automation – Live and In Person!

Location: Toronto, Canada
Date: May 27, 2024 to May 30, 2024

What’s happening?
Rapid Software Testing classes, live and in person, are coming to Toronto!

Rapid Software Testing (RST) is a context-driven approach for testing any product that includes or involves software. It’s designed to be the fastest, least expensive testing that completely fulfills the mission: exposing risk and finding problems before it’s too late.

Rapid Software Testing Explored is a world-renowned, three-day class that introduces the methodology. Through hands-on activities and interactive discussion, we challenge assumptions and expose common misconceptions about software testing. Then we show you powerful new ways to think, to apply heuristic models, and to test responsibly and systematically. RST helps you to focus on business risk and — when necessary — to do the kinds of deep testing that your project needs.

RST Explored is followed, this time, by Rapid Software Testing Focused: Automation, a one-day workshop to help you develop strategy for applying tools in your testing effectively while avoiding the traps.

Who should come?
Testers, developers, managers, designers, documenters, support people… Both classes are designed for everyone on a development team who needs to think critically about software. Even marketers have attended RST classes and have benefitted from them.

Why testing?
Why do we test? We test to develop a comprehensive understanding of the product and the risks around it. We test to find problems that threaten the value of the product, or that threaten the on-time, successful completion of any kind of development work. We test to help the business, managers, and developers decide whether the product they’ve got is the product they want.

Above all, we test because it is the responsible thing to do. We have a duty of care toward our teams, our organizations, our customers, and society itself. Releasing poorly tested software would be a breach of that duty.
