I was always intrigued by the miracle Hudson landing of US Airways Flight 1549 in 2009 so much so that I have seen documentaries, read the NTSB report and watched the movie Sully multiple times. This event not just has lessons for leadership in chaos but also for software testing. In this presentation, I am going to list the following four testing lessons that I have learned from this event and the aftermath. 1. Bird size and the accuracy of your testdata 2. Task saturation and test results reporting. 3. Training and reskilling. 4. Finding the implicit. These lessons hopefully will provide you with a fresh perspective on how technology is not the solution of all the problems.
