Talk: Exploratory Testing for Seniors

Almost every Test Engineer thinks, that he knows what Exploratory testing is. I used to think the same. But I was wrong.
Do you realize the true mechanism of this technique? Or think, that it doesn't need any specific algorithm?
Did you ever create the test charter? Or prepared goals for your exploratory sessions?
During my speech, I'll show you the two most famous approaches to Exploratory testing from Cem Kaner and James Whittaker. We'll try to analyze the "freestyle" strategy and, from the other side create tours like the "The Rained-Out Tour".
And I am sure that the battle of ideas from these two world testing Experts could inspire every even most demanding Test Engineer with Senior experience.
