The Search for Surprises

The Search for Surprises – James Lyndsay, Workroom Productions Ltd


In this talk, James Lyndsay will identify and illustrate approaches that help you to root out the ways that working software misbehaves. We’ll put these approaches in context by describing emergent behaviours, strategies and diversity, wicked problems and the temptations of confirmation. Participants with laptops can download and work through some of the exercises.


James Lyndsay has publicly championed and taught exploratory testing for more than ten years, and has guided exploratory teams towards interesting risks for rather longer. He built the Black Box testing machines, failed to improve the ISEB exam, convened LEWT, and started up the TestLab.
