(Almost) Everything I know about testing I learned playing poker

What do software testing and Texas Hold ‘Em poker have in common? More than you might think. Risk assessments, planning (but not writing a plan), bluffing, reading a bluff, resource allocation and many more software testing techniques are found in playing poker. In this highly interactive session Mr. Eakin will walk some “volunteers” through one (or many) hands of Texas Hold ‘Em. With each turn of the cards we will apply testing techniques familiar to us to (hopefully) win the hand. Don’t worry, unlike real life poker we’re not going to take your money! At least not all of it.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how to effectively do and apply a risk assessment
  • Understand how to plan and the importance of planning
  • Understand why creating a plan can be a bad idea
