Title: Spice up your Testing Gamify it out!


"In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun." ~Mary Poppins.

Games have been an integral part of human civilization for many years now. As the saying goes, "Quality is everyone's responsibility"; we want the entire team to foster and contribute to project quality actively. Ensuring effective engagement, collaboration, and driving innovation have always been challenging within Testing Teams. Is Gamification the answer? Probably Yes

Gamification is founded in human psychology and behavioral science fundamentals and rests on three primary factors: motivation, ability level, and triggers. By applying
gamification concepts, there is a potential to change how we can do testing in the following ways-

  1. Gamification can help foster interest in learning and help drive interest towards
    niche testing topics.
  2. It would engage testing practitioners to explore advanced testing techniques and
    tools for their advantage, which they usually would not consider.
  3. Also, it would help with crowdsourcing complex testing tasks with a purpose.

In this talk, I will be walking through some gamification strategies and techniques that 
can use to influence behavior change and how these techniques can facilitate more effective collaboration and employee engagement. I will also be walking through ways on
how Gamification in software testing can lead to positive outcomes.

Let change how testing is taught and practiced influencing and inspiring future software
engineers to take testing as a profession.
