Mor Korem,

How standup comedy made me a better tester

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:

  1. Following through a script, when the audience is not laughing.

  2. Improving according to live-feedback for your next set.

  3. Holding your audience engaged.

  4. Gathering live-feedback while performing on stage.

  5. Telling the same story from new angles.

  6. 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.
