"We should just call it testing - when it's not exploratory testing it's not real testing anyway" -Twitter, Summer 2011 Lately many professional testers have started to make a clear distinctions between thing that we call testing (like TDD and BDD) and what they consider testing - referring to TDD and BDD mostly as checking. And actually I – and I would think many of you as well – have seen projects with a test coverage of 80% and more that still fail to meet the clients' needs. Even though they meet the specifications perfectly. This points to some value that could be added to techniques like BDD and TDD by embracing the ideas from people like James Marcus Bach, Paul Carvalho and Michael Bolton. After giving an overview of current trends in the testing community like ET (exploratory testing) and ATDD (Acceptance Test Driven Development) this session will try to do exactly that: discuss the - often missing - intersection between BDD and exploratory testing and suggest ways to fill it.
