Enhance Your Testing Workbox with New Approaches, Methods, and Ideas

Add to calendar

What do you do when you are not testing? Whatever it is, you probably have a place where you work on your interests, some tools and equipment, and some things you always have with you. Perhaps you have a room or shed or tool rack with your favorite and most used equipment readily at hand in a workbox. Wouldn’t it be great to have your own workbox for testing? Well, Isabel Evans says you already do! Everyone’s “mental tool set” is different, but we all need versatile, strong, and multipurpose approaches to our work. In thirty years of software testing, Isabel has developed her own trusted workbox of approaches, methods, and ideas that help her communicate, manage, improve, test, work in teams, and solve problems. Join Isabel as she shares her workbox with you and uses a mix of teaching, coaching, discussion, and hands-on exercises to help you share your workboxes and restock your “mental tool set” for testing.
