Axxes x Michael Bolton

Michael is the co-creator of Rapid Software Testing (RST), a testing method and mindset that allows for better and more confident testing. In February 2024, Michael is coming to Belgium especially for Axxes! Our Axxes Testing League is constantly looking for ways to take their knowledge to the next level, and came to Michael. And you can enjoy this! On Thursday, February 22, Axxes is hosting a BREWT meet-up where Michael will talk about RST and the issues that are currently on his mind. We will make it an interactive evening, where you can ask questions as well.

Michael Bolton

Michael Bolton is a consulting software tester and testing teacher who helps people to solve testing problems that they didn’t realize they could solve. In 2006, he became co-creator (with creator James Bach) of Rapid Software Testing (RST), a methodology and mindset for testing software expertly and credibly in uncertain conditions and under extreme time pressure. Since then, he has flown over a million miles to teach RST in 35 countries on six continents. You can read more about Michael on

Rapid Software Testing

Rapid Software Testing seeks to be the fastest, least expensive testing that fulfills the mission. It can be implemented across an organization, but at its heart, RST is a personal discipline. As such, you don’t need anyone’s permission to do it. But it doesn’t happen by accident, or just by having a lot of experience. You have to work at it.

How do you achieve great testing?

  • How do you get yourself—or your people—excited about testing?
  • How do you sustain that excitement?
  • How do you use that energy to help people become better testers?
  • How do you foster respect for the testing process? How do you cultivate the kind of testing that is worthy of respect?

Rapid Software Testing answers these questions.

RST is a way of doing, teaching, and talking about testing that gives responsible people the freedom and the tools to do testing well. Whether you are a tester, a developer, a manager, or anyone else for whom testing matters, RST gives you a lot to love about testing.
