Doing standup comedy is a lot of fun, takes a lot of courage and some talent is recommended as well.
You can also learn a lot from it.
As a comedian, dealing with failure is the first challenge among many others:
Following through a script, when the audience is not laughing.
Improving according to live-feedback for your next set.
Holding your audience engaged.
Gathering live-feedback while performing on stage.
Telling the same story from new angles.
Building a fluent story with a meaningful message.
As I adapt and learn to handle these challenges, I find my testing improving as well.
In this talk, we will discuss:
- Building a clear test plan that tells the business story through it.
- How to approach performing the same tests better.
- Gathering feedback during test execution.
- Reflecting the testing effort in the R&D group.
- Producing valuable lessons from completed and deployed features.
- Holding a structured test when chaos occurs.
- Owning a failing plan in order to evolve from it.
