6 steps to write test cases using exploratory testing methods

hpdiscover13.pngAt HP Discover 2013 Las Vegas we compared the power of a Jedi’s light saber with manual testers using HP Sprinter. Both need to use the force to complete their task.

 

 Manual testers need to communicate detailed information to a developer or business user; they usually rely on some form of written communications in the form of a very detailed test case or defect. In my opinion, having to communicate information on this level is like having to disassemble and reassemble your blaster between every shot.

 

 Let’s take a look at this task and see if there is a better way to communicate between testers and developers. Follow me on this journey, won’t you?
