Pomodoro testing is a testing technique based on the widely spread time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980's.
Common estimates for maintained attention span (amount of time a person can concentrate on a task without becoming distracted) in adults is around 25 min.
As a tester, how can we be expected to keep "attention to detail" when we work in all day long testing sessions? Is there a way to find more defects while testing for the same amount of time or less?
The answer to these questions is Pomodoro Testing, a technique used by Globe Testing to ensure our testers stay focussed hence maximizing productivity and minimizing overtime.
In this talk Jose Aracil will explain how to use the Pomodoro technique to excel during exploratory testing sessions, as well as agile testing sprints, where staying fully focussed and managing time effectively are crucial for the success of the project.
We will wrap up the session by explaining how to use this innovative technique together with your team, boosting the productivity of your software testing department.
