About the Author
Elisabeth Hendrickson is a tester, developer, and Agile enabler. A seasoned veteran, she wrote her first line of code in 1980, and almost immediately found her first bug. In 2010 she won the prestigious Gordon Pask Award from the Agile Alliance. She is best known for her Google Tech Talk on Agile Testing as well as her wildly popular Test Heuristics Cheatsheet. She splits her time between teaching, speaking, writing, programming, and working on Agile teams that value her obsession with testing.
""Reading this book taught me new skills and heuristics; but even better, it helped me channel my tester "spidey sense" more creatively and usefully. I keep this book handy at all times and occasionally do one of the practice sessions to keep my awareness keen. Explore It! helps me make sure our customers and our company get real value from our software. It'll help you too.""--Lisa Crispin, Coauthor with Janet Gregory, "Agile Testing: A Practical Guide for Testers and Agile Teams"""
""Explore It! starts with a bang. Elisabeth catches your imagination and has filled the book with practical ideas for exploring everything from your typical GUI scenarios to testing ideas (requirements), and she even includes suggestions for programmers on how to explore low-level code. This book should be on every development team member's desk, not only testers. It is the book I carry with me whenever I introduce exploratory testing to development teams.""--Janet Gregory, Coauthor with Lisa Crispin, "Agile Testing: A Practical Guide for Testers and Agile Teams"
