Through scouring the different testing challenges & realising the potential limitations (such as its a big ask to expect everyone to bring a lappy on the 1st night) I really like the idea of ‘hypothetically’ testing an object.
I’m thinking of giving a high level overview of Exploratory Testing, how heuristics are used to focus an exploratory session & finally apply ET & heuristics to test the Delorean.
I intend to provide a fair amount of information to help guide & kickstart the dojo, with the intention of not leaving everyone baffled!
One major point being the length & relevance of the FCC CUTS VIDS heuristic – People might not be aware of the FFC, nor what they get upto. Also, its a very long heuristic & it was felt the scope was consequently too wide & would take too long.
As such, I’ve come up with the Back To The Future heuristic! Its an amalgamation of several other heuristics, will have limited scope, but will hopefully give the right idea & enough focus for a good ET session:
- Boundaries (domain testing)
- Time & Date
One problem I’m struggling with at the moment is that Boundaries and Time & Date are going to be very similar in that loads of the boundaries will be a time &/or date!
Many thanks to the following sources for inspiration for challenges:
