Through hands-on activities and interactive discussion, we challenge assumptions and expose common misconceptions about software testing. We show you powerful new ways to think, to apply heuristic models, and to test responsibly and systematically so that you focus on business risk and do the right kinds of deep testing that your project needs. RST Explored is the latest version of the original three-day course formerly called 'Rapid Software Testing'. Attendees are strongly encouraged to bring their own laptops or tablets.

Michael Bolton is a consulting software tester and testing teacher who helps people to solve testing problems that they didn't realize they could solve. In 2006, he became co-author (with James Bach) of Rapid Software Testing (RST), a methodology and mindset for testing software expertly and credibly in uncertain conditions and under extreme time pressure. Since then, he has flown over a million miles to teach RST in 35 countries on six continents.
Michael has 30 years of experience testing, developing, managing, and writing about software. For over 20 years, he has led DevelopSense, a Toronto-based testing and development consultancy. Prior to that, he was with Quarterdeck Corporation for eight years, during which he managed the company’s flagship products and directed project and testing teams both in-house and around the world.
