Software Testing Workshop


Testing is a critical part of Software development and, whether we do it ourselves or we leave it to our users. This course pretends to share a common understanding of what Software Testing is. Once that has been done, the goal is to equip you with a good toolbelt of techniques and resources so you feel comfortable when approaching the activity of testing (understanding if what you have built works as expected or discovering if what we plan to build is the right thing for both users and business).

Although most of the techniques will be explained via simplifications for the sake of teaching them, the majority of the examples are based on my real world experience, hopefully helping to relate the training contents to your day to day work.

What can you learn?

  • Understand the value you can expect from Software Testing
  • How to approach Software Development improving the chances of "building the right thing" and "building it right"
  • A wide range of techniques that will help you designing and executing a testing strategy to make the most of your testing time
  • Possible ways to include the testing activity in an Agile team

Who is this training for?

Developing Software is a holistic activity, so knowing some testing basics will always help. Because of that, this training can be useful to people who work on Software Development in general, but if you ask me, I think it can be specially interesting to junior testers, Product Managers and also to developers (junior or not) who are not familiar with the Agile testing quadrants and most of the techniques explained.


  • Definition of Software Testing and Agile testing quadrants
  • Techniques in the second quadrant (Business facing, guide development)
  • Techniques in the first quadrant (Tech facing, guide development)
  • Techniques in the third quadrant (Business facing, critique product)
  • Techniques in the fourth quadrant (Tech facing, critique product)
  • Putting it all together (Testing Strategy, Agile testing, Tester as an IC, ...)
This is the list of techniques we'll see per quadrant (some get more time than others): Testing techniques per quadrant *To avoid confusions, TDD is not a testing technique IMHO, it's a design technique which relies on unit testing, so expect just a couple of slides... basically sharing this opinion. Also, note that there's barely no focus on unit testing, just a mention. If you have special interest in Unit testing I recommend you my Unit testing training.

What do people say about it?

This is some of the feedback I have gathered from attendants to the training:

  • It was great! Excellent content!
  • Great! Thought I would pick up something, but did not think I would learn so many immediately applicable and useful things
  • Lots of content, good examples and well explained. A good starting point to submerge yourself in the world of testing
  • It was nice and broadened my perspective on the subject matter
  • Very interesting. Small exercises/demos are really helpful to understand the concepts and maintain the attention during the session

Apart of the qualitative feedback, I also ask for quantitative: training feedback rating
