Smoke Tests and Mirrors


Having been a magician for 35 years, I started noticing that some magic principles and theories also apply to software testing. In this session, I will try to connect those two seemingly unrelated subjects. This will show that everything you learn has an impact on how you behave and what you do professionally. This is based on a series of blog posts that I wrote about this subject with more to come in the future:,automation


  • See how experiences in a completely unrelated field can be highly beneficial for your professional life
  • Think about aspects of software testing from a different angle
  • Get to know a little more about the magic world and have some fun with it
