Rapid Software Testing is a three-day, hands-on class that teaches testing as a sophisticated thinking art. The philosophy presented in this class is not like traditional approaches to testing, which ignore the thinking part of testing and instead advocate never-ending paperwork. Products have become too complex for that, time is too short, and testers are too expensive. Rapid testing uses a cyclic approach and heuristic methods to constantly re-optimize testing to fit the needs of your clients. 

The Rapid approach isn't just testing with a speed or sense of urgency; it's mission-focused testing that eliminates unnecessary work, assures that everything necessary gets done, and constantly asks what testing can do to speed the project as a whole. This class presents an approach to testing that begins with developing personal skills and extends to the ultimate mission of software testing: lighting the way of the project by evaluating the product.

One important tool of rapid testing is the discipline of exploratory testing-essentially a testing martial art. Exploratory testing combines test design, test execution, test result interpretation, and learning into a seamless process that finds a lot of problems quickly. If you are an experienced tester, you'll find out how to articulate those intellectual processes of testing that you already practice intuitively. If you're a new tester, hands-on testing exercises help you gain critical experience.

  1. Hi Sarah,

    I have attended a 2 day course by Michael Bolton last year. It has been one of the best workshops I have ever attended. I also think that I have done a lot of good to myself as a Tester by taking this course.

    I am sure many more testers will benefit from Michael's workshop

  2. Hi Parimala,

    Thank you for your comments.

    I attended RST provided by James Bach a couple of years ago and it was the most challenging, enjoyable, motivating class I have attended. It really got be thinking about testing as a skill to be developed and most certainly improved my effectiveness.

  3. It is good option to learn the software testing with a right person and right place.So go ahead for it.
