This subset of the Black Box Software Testing collection includes resources to teach Exploratory Testing. Software testing is a technical investigation conducted to provide stakeholders with empirical information about the quality of a software product, system or service. The investigation includes research necessary to design information-revealing tests and interpret their results, building tools and data sets to make those tests possible, and communication necessary to report results to stakeholders in an effective way. Like any skilled tester, the explorer does all of these. The difference is that the explorer does them in any sequence that is useful, mixing research, design, execution, interpretation, and communication so as to keep exposing new information and keep up with the ongoing changes in market, platform, design, and implementation of the software under test. Resources include lecture videos, slides, activities, and suggested readings.
