Topic: A-Galumphing We Will Go
Galumphing is a way to explore a phase space with unknown degrees of freedom by exploiting Ashby's Law of Requisite Variety. I just love saying that sentence. It's sounds all technical and complicated. But the idea itself is beautifully simple.
I promise you, by the end of my talk, you will know exactly what each word of it means and why it's important. For you pragmatists, here's the bottom-line: galumphing is a style of test execution with which we find unanticipated bugs. Unless all your bugs are anticipated ones, you need to galumph.
Come along to hear the presentation and join in the discussion. The presentation will be followed by a networking session with drinks and nibbles.
