Mr. Sharma began by talking about quite a common problem capable of paralyzing the testers – a situation when a product lacks documentation. The solution to this he said was Exploratory Testing (ET)! “ET is emerging as a key to improved quality for every Software Development Project and is a driving factor for the success of a software solution. However, nothing comes for free, one always need to blaze a path to success. It’s so true! Likewise, exploratory testing also presents us with a number of challenges – one of the biggest being managing an unplanned activity.” said Mukesh Sharma, founder-CEO of QA InfoTech.
