Typically we focus on metaphors from engineering and manufacturing and learn about the disciplines of these industries. There is so much to gain by learning about other industries such as Aviation and Health Care, and studying other disciplines. For instance, heuristics originated from behavioural economics and mind mapping was developed over centuries by philosophers and psychologists.
Having previously delivered this talk at SoftTest Dublin 2018 and TestBash Brighton 2019, an updated version of this talk will focus on my journey of being transformed from a regimented confirmation tester to a context-based exploratory tester. These changes occurred by the challenges faced by testing software in different industries and more importantly studying non-engineering discipline.
