I recently found an old note with the “7 dwarfs testing approach” which is sort of comparable to the tours concep for exploratory testing I guess.
The 7 dwarfs are:
Happy – Take the happy path through the SW
Dopey – Do weird and unexpected things to the SW
Grumpy – Find all the stuff worth complaining about in the SW
Bashful – Does the SW make the user feel awkward or stupid anywhere?
Doc – Follow the instructions/manual/help file
Sleepy – Let the device enter sleep mode between actions.
Sneezy – Get SW and HW interrupts while using the SW
What I would like to know is if anyone knows where it comes from? It’s always nice to give credit where credit is due, but I have no record of where I found it.
I think it’s at least 5 years old, possibly up to 8 years old.January 26, 2017 at 11:39 am #15115RonanKeymaster@ronan
Never heard of it myself but I am sure there is someone in the community who can help.January 29, 2017 at 1:42 pm #15165ArchanaParticipant@archana
Very interesting way to cover all aspects of exploratory testing to the 7 dwarfs. Tried to search for it, but sadly found nothing about this on the net.February 1, 2017 at 4:47 pm #15205TassawerParticipant@tassaweramin
Seems quite interesting topic and would be looking forward to hear something from our experienced community members.
