This post is follow up on my post about traveling to CAST 2016 as software tester. In that post I mentioned that I noticed at Paris Charles De Gaulle Airport metal pattern at the top of the stairs. Using Google, I tried to find out the purpose of that pattern, but with no result. Then community kicked in and I got response about the purpose of that pattern (tanks to another_one and Bruno Prsa).
That this pattern helps blind people to identify where stairs begin. This blog post describes testing techniques that could help me to get to that conclusion by myself.
Michael Kelly article: Taking a tour through test country presents application tours that helps to get to know with the application. Two tours could have helped me to identify purpose of the pattern: user and scenario tours.
The first is the user tour. In this tour, you attempt to imagine five users for the product and the information they would want from the product or the major features they would be interested in. The second tour is the scenario tour. Here, try to imagine five realistic scenarios for how the users identified in the user tour would use this product.
In BBST Test Design, you can learn about James Bach Heuristic Test Strategy Model where one of test technique is user testing.
Are you ready to enhance your testing craft?
