Fooled By Unknown Unknowns

Reading Time: 1 minute

“What’s one motto of a thoughtful tester? ‘Question your assumptions!’

Even though I say this little phrase out loud frequently, as a powerful reminder to be suspicious of the things I perceive and conceive while I test, I sometimes ignore this heuristic.”

In this webinar, Alexandra Casapu shares a detailed experience report of how, and what, she tested in a context of remote collaboration. This webinar is based on real examples of what she missed and assumed, with the questions that could have helped. She also relates the value she gained from collaborating with another tester.

Key Takeaways:

  • Find out how collaboration can help you improve your work and find relevant bugs
  • Learn how to be aware of what you focus on when testing in order to deal with ‘unknown unknowns’
