Being Creative: A Visual Testing WorkshopSOLD OUT NEW

The reality is that technology is complicated. As testers, we are challenged with complicated problems that need solving. Andy Glover presents a hands-on workshop that describes a new way of looking at testing problems and ideas. Andy demonstrates how thinking with pictures can help testers discover and develop new ideas, solve problems in unexpected ways, and dramatically improve their ability to share their insights with others. Andy shows how to clarify a problem or sell an idea by visually breaking it down using a set of visualization tools including mind maps, work flows, and powerful but simple visuals to communicate complex messages. You don’t need to know how to draw to attend this workshop. Although we are naturally creative, sometimes it takes effort to develop those skills. Join Andy to learn how to apply visual solutions to our everyday software testing challenges.
