Let’s Play! Learning Through Testing Games

The best way to learn how to test is doing it while having fun. Testing games allow you to learn the concepts of test skills while exploring games and what makes them work.

It can be overwhelming to learn about testing. Whether it's the latest book, podcast, conference session or workshop, information about testing is expanding at an ever increasing rate. I invite you to look even further, even into the games we play. Testing Games are games which are designed to apply testing concepts or ones that happen to be perfect examples of test mentality. This workshop is for anyone who wants to explore ways that we can learn about testing through games. In this workshop you’ll play a few testing games, gaining tools to use back at work and with your peers. We’ll run some of our own tests on those games, and I will introduce you to the theory and practice of learning through playing. I will walk you through the brainstorming, design, testing and development of a test game, and show you how you can rapidly bring your ideas to life and create a fun learning tool of your own.
