Michael Bolton provides software testing services worldwide and specialises in consulting, training and coaching for businesses, teams and individuals.
This year Michael Bolton is teaching not only his
succesful Rapid Software Testing training, but also the
Rapid Test Management training. "Rapid Software
Testing for Managers" is a course about a
mission-focused, credible, and accountable approach to
test management that is very fast, very inexpensive, and
that delivers excellent results. The class is written by Michael Bolton and James Bach.
Rapid Software Testing will be held from the 21st of May until the 23th of May. Rapid Test Management training takes place on the 24th and 25th of May.
Rapid testing is a complete methodology
designed for a world of barely sufficient resources,
information, and time. It's an approach to testing that
begins with developing personal skills and extends to
the ultimate mission of software testing: lighting the
way of the project by evaluating the product. The
approach is consistent with and a follow-on to many of
the concepts and principles introduced in the book
Lessons Learned in Software Testing: a Context-Driven
Approach by Kaner, Bach, and Pettichord.

Students about Rapid Software Testing:
"Last week I took Rapid Software Testing from Michael Bolton. The three days of stuffing my brain in the beautiful downtown campus of the University of Toronto was loads of fun...If you don't go to play each day, or you don't think you can break the rules, or you simply want to become a better tester, give Rapid Software Testing a try. I think you will find, as I did, that it is three days well spent!"
"The training was a great exposure to a lot of different concepts and methods of attacking problems, and the rapid testing strategy looks to be very useful. On Thursday a support issue came into the group that fell in one of my feature areas, so I replied. I did a little work before lunch, and while out at lunch I thought that this would be a time to try some of the rapid testing methods. Took about 10 minutes, noted steps and thoughts as I was going, and arrived at a cause and possible solution much quicker than I would have in the past."
