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. We invite you to play games that enable you to digest test learning easier.
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 and also to apply your test knowledge to hack and improve those games.
In this workshop you’ll play a few testing games, gaining tools to use back at work and with your peers. For those interested we'll take it one step further by taking a look at the quality attributes of these games and try to hack them to make them fit for your purpose or just play around with them to see what happends when you take it to far. In essence we'll be testing the game by playing Testing: The game.
