Habitability Matters

If you want to focus your effort as a tester to activities that provide value for people around you, habitability can help you succeeding in it

Habitability as a concept is commonly related to places we live in. It’s what makes them livable. A home. Richard Gabriel approached this concept in his book “Patterns of Software” and did it from the perspective of programmers. This led me to think the factors that make our daily working context habitable for a tester. How easily can we find the pieces of information that help us question the product? How does something like providing shelter translate into testing context? Or what does vermins have to do with our daily software development? Join me in this session where we will go through how I've questioned my own work using the heuristics that form our concept of habitability. And let's also find out how habitable your own work environment is.
