The world of software testing is changing under the pressure of ‘speed to market’
The pressure to quickly get products to market means we are starting to see a significant shift towards automated tests during development. This will likely cause socio-technical complexities for orgs and teams currently involved in testing. In order to be successful through these changes, orgs will need to have a clear strategy and processes in place that will ensure testing is a vital part of the delivery process. In this new age of testing, how can engineering leaders prevent pitfalls such as friction between teams, a culture of blame, and outdated processes?
In this panel, engineering leaders will examine how this shift affects traditional testing set-ups, covering what a healthy testing culture looks like and how to avoid the anti-patterns that lead to uncommunicative teams and project bottlenecks. Explore how engineering teams can best work together and how to encourage a shared vision of quality and the importance of efficient and effective tests.
- Define clear roles and responsibilities for quality and testing in your org
- Encourage QA to be seen as necessary, rather than inhibiting release times
- Understand which tests to automate, and which to not
