    Exploratory Test Automation

    Presented by Harry Robinson, Microsoft

    Modern software systems are too big for purely manual testing, but they change too rapidly for traditional test automation to keep up. Computer-aided exploratory testing amplifies your testing ability by combining human creativity with machine horsepower to produce testing that is thorough, robust, and flexible. This presentation covers the basics of computer-aided exploratory testing and examples of how we use it to deliver Bing.
     
    [To get a jump on the presentation topic, read Harry's article, Intelligent Test Automation, for many of the ideas behind computer-aided exploratory testing.]

    Bio:
    Harry Robinson is Principal Software Development Engineer in Test for Microsoft's Bing team. He has twenty-five years of software development and testing experience at AT&T Bell Labs, Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft, and Google as well as time spent in the startup trenches. While at Bell Labs, Harry created a model-based testing system that won the 1995 AT&T Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Area of Quality. At Microsoft, he pioneered the model-based test generation technology, which won the Microsoft Best Practice Award in 2001. Harry holds two patents for software test automation methods and speaks and writes frequently on software testing and automation issues.

    Skip Angel's presentation, Agile: Managers Need Not Apply will be rescheduled. He is in southern California on a long-term work engagement and was unable to present March 1 as originally publicized; we do hope to have him present when he returns.
