Technology Based Technical Testing

What do you learn if you want to test ‘beyond the acceptance criteria’? Technical risk based testing can help. In this case I’m going to use the phrase Technical Testing to cover: “identify technology based risks to drive testing”. This thought process can help us make informed decisions about the scope of exploratory testing we will carry out. It also helps focus your studies on the technical knowledge appropriate for the project you are testing.

In this talk I use a simple example to illustrate the need for technology understanding to help reduce test scope and identify risk.
