Exploratory Testing Workshop

June 9, 2015 6:30 - 8:30 PM

At the beginning of the workshop we will discuss:

  • What is Exploratory Testing
  • The purpose of a Testing Charter
  • How Exploratory Testing differs from Scripted and Ad-hoc Testing
  • Using Exploratory Testing in an Agile environment

Since the Testing Charter is the backbone of Exploratory Testing, we will then divide into groups and create charters for various testing scenarios.


At the end of the workshop, we will review our results and have a Question and Answer session.
