Maaret Pyhäjärvi traveled from her native Finland to speak at the Agile Alliance Technical Conference 2016 about “Exploratory Testing in API”. According to Maaret, much of what’s keeping non-technical people from understanding development and testing is not having a GUI to interact with and explore. “I wanted to create an experience … where we actually take some API, which looks like code and doesn’t have a user interface” and create a GUI for individuals to do exploratory testing on. In this session she applies her 20 years of experience in testing and, more recently, mob testing to enable non-developers to participate in exploratory testing in a mob development environment.
Maaret Pyhäjärvi is a software specialist with emphasis on testing. She works with a 10-person software development team at Granlund Oy as the testing specialist. On the side, she delivers hands-on testing trainings and consults on testing through Altom Consulting Oy.
