Games in Testing

(Heather) #1

Myself and @melthetester have just released Gamifying Your Software Testing Career & Workplace part 1 and part2.

Honestly it was a lot of fun to write, it was nearly too much fun! We had to restrain ourselves somewhat, we had SO many ideas. We agreed on a core set of games and ideas that we would write about and then we would open the floor to the games we didn’t have the chance to add.

We only scratched the surface of the number of games that John Stevenson brought to TestBash Brighton, for example.

What games have you tried in your workplace? Or have you experienced someone trying to gamify your workplace? How did you find the experience?

Since completing the final edits, I have found A quick beginner’s guide to drawing which might help you with the active note taking section.
