RST - Makati Testers Meetup

Published on

This presentation was delivered at the Makati Testers Meetup hosted by Sandstone Technology on 4 August 2016.
The information in this presentation and some of the slides are taken directly from James Bach & Michael Bolton’s Rapid Software Testing (RST) class and the notes from that class (which are publicly available from satisfice.com).
This presentation is intended to provide an overview of some ideas presented in that class, I am not claiming any ownership of these ideas.
