Effective “CommuniQAtion” when Dealing with Multiple Audiences

Wednesday, April 28, 2021 - 2:15pm to 3:15pm

As the world continues to “go digital” and people increasingly define themselves as “metrics-driven,” storytelling, in its most classic form, may be seen as a dying art. Software testers can’t afford to let that happen. Uncovering and effectively communicating powerful stories is one of a testers’ greatest strengths—and one of an organization’s biggest assets.

Do you know the key components that make for a great story in order to effectively “communiQAte” with different personas and audiences? We’ll also share some potential issues and pitfalls to avoid, common story goldmines, and...

Frictionless Application Security and Quality Testing

Wednesday, April 28, 2021 - 3:45pm to 4:45pm

The promise of application security testing is that it will increase velocity by catching security weaknesses and vulnerabilities early, but the practical reality is that the overhead of using one or many individual tools can create so much friction that it erodes the full value promised by AST solutions. The ideal solution will blend into and disappear into the fabric of your DevOps pipeline, providing value without creating friction, getting in the way, or slowing down developers and operations.

Scale Test Automation: Tips and Tools to Grow Fearlessly

Thursday, April 29, 2021 - 11:30am to 12:30pm

Test automation projects start with the best of intentions but then often fail because they don’t meet their milestones. When the project started, the goals were simple enough. Build test coverage. Run weekly regression tests. Catch more bugs. As the project grew, it added complexity—more tests, people, and releases. Flaky tests start sucking up more time for maintenance. To keep up, your team needs a more comprehensive approach to scaling the operational aspects of testing. TestOps should go beyond collaboration, adding tools to manage and control the process and the insights to transform...
