with Vikas Mittal

Why one should attend?

Hear from our Past Attendees!

This is a really great workshop, with excellent content, practical test techniques and approaches that can be applied in many different contexts. Rob’s passion and energy encouraged great interaction from the workshop participants, and he shared many real case studies and examples from his vast experience to show the practical effects of applying these approaches in the real world. This is an amazing course and Rob is an amazing instructor. Thanks TTT for organising this bootcamp, highly recommended!

The benefits of JIT for me are that it delves into a hands-on approach into Test idea sources, Test Design and Techniques. Seeing Rob go through Control Flow, Decision Tables and Combinatorics is essential and his coverage of Failure Modes Analysis is the icing on the cake. JIT delves deep and you come out of the course armed with tools and concepts that you can use. The term test idea is always thrown around, but try to find a suitable definition? JIT is full of test ideas along with a definition! Robs is a master at teaching and at provoking thought…..full of test ideas!

Rob Sab’s JIT is a must for testers and developers alike. The workshop examples tie directly to real world testing problems, are practical and quick to implement. My teams have even implemented the ideas from JIT during course breaks. I highly recommend JIT for anyone wanting to understand more about what testing is, how to do it professionally and provide real value.

I had several Eureka moments that helped get rid of several myths I seem of have about Software Engineering and Testing. I now have a repertoire of ideas to take back home from this course.
